I'm a 29 year old Grad Student from Southern California. I have spent a lot of time in Latin America working, teaching and doing research. I love running and try to run/hike/walk around wherever I travel. My favorite hobbies include: eating my way through NYC and sitting on beaches pretty much everywhere. I am very fond of animals and have a Chilean cat called Bernardo O'Higgins (Higgy for short) who is incredibly friendly.
