About Me

Hello!

Vanessa is a Portland Oregoner stationed in London with her husband, Sathya, for the foreseeable future.

Vanessa loves meeting new people, food, and frisbee. She’s studying international development with an emphasis on sustainability, and is passionate about it. I like the singy-acty things, but also the mathy-economy things, lots of conversation material...

Sathya lived in India for the better part his life. He’s passionate about traveling, experiencing other cultures, and Photography. He’s a great cook, finds comfort in hiking and spending time in nature.

Between the two of us we speak English, Tamil, French, and American Sign Language

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Studied at American University while working in Europe

Teach, Learn, Share

I Love cooking, choral music, and traveling. willing to talk politics and like nerdy things.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I live in London and would be happy to provide hosting in return, in the meantime I make really good breakfast food, particularly eggs.

A love for frisbee, theater, boardgames, and equality. Can offer dialogue on politics. A love for food and learning new things.

Friends have called me the most optimistic person they know, and I think live up to that.

I believe we get out of the world what we give to it.

I love making people laugh and am fortunate to have come from an open minded strange place like Portland Oregon.
