I'm a Northern California native but have lived in both Paris and Chicago and have also been fortunate enough to do my fair share of traveling. Japan is next on the list.
I have a passion for film, education and the arts which were my main focus of study in undergrad. My other passions include Buffy, homemade pizza, biking, building, architecture and swimming.
Right now my style of traveling is traveling on a budget :) mostly because that's my only option at the moment but it really helps to get creative and see a new environment the way the locals do. I also like to travel with my stomach when I can afford it-see different neighborhoods based on where I'm eating that day.
All in all I'm very down to earth and love meeting people of all ages and walks of life!
