Hi! I live in my home city of Indianapolis, and I've also lived in Greencastle, IN; Denver and Steamboat Springs, CO; and Quito, Ecuador. I currently work for Angie's List. I've had a number of jobs over the last 5 years, including campaign organizer, ESL teacher, various retail positions, and Girl Scouts after-school program specialist. Basically, I like to share ideas, solve problems, and make the world run more happily and smoothly.
I also have a profile on that site where you surf on couches, where I've been a member for about 4 years.
When travelling, I like to check out cool local vegetarian-friendly restaurants, visit unique stores, see historic sites, visit museums, and even hit up the touristy spots. I'm happy to hang out with hosts and I can entertain myself too. I'm open-minded and rarely bored. As a guest, I'm responsible, neat, and conscientious.
A few of my favorite things: dogs, travel, animals, running, going on walks, nature, exploring, activism, jewelry, beauty products, fashion, writing, pub trivia
A few of my favorite places: NYC, Colorado, Arizona, Canada, Ecuador, Venezuela
Dream trips (almost anywhere, but to narrow it down): Germany/surrounding countries, the UK, South Africa, Argentina/Uruguay/Chile, Iceland, Mexico
