Hello! I am a singer and a music teacher, so I've worked with all kinds of kids- originally working in my home state of Michigan, and then moving to Chicago almost two years ago, and ending up in Bogotá, Colombia where I work as a choral director. I really love connecting with people from around the world, through traveling myself and hosting others. I dig cooking a good meal with friends, enjoying local music and culture, reading, cross country skiing, running and hiking, and learning to live more sustainably.
I enjoy traveling in an authentic way and love meeting others who truly want to experience an area. When I travel to a new place, I find that the easiest way to connect is through the local food, music and community. One time, on a trip to Provence, France, I stayed with a woman who introduced me to her friends, and instead of touring the normal tourist attractions (which are of course sometimes worth checking out too), I spent the afternoon playing a French lawn game of boules, eating an incredible lunch they made, drinking local wine and visiting with new friends.
I look forward to the chance to have a cup of tea, coffee or wine with you, and hear about your travels!
Hasta pronto- A bientot- See you soon!
