I enjoy getting to know people from other cultures and broadening my understanding of the world. While traveling I like to see sites of artistic significance, as well as natural wonders. I like to try new foods and new activities. At home, I kayak, bike, jog, and when I'm not in Chicago, hike. Oh, yeah, I also work. I enjoy the small (and big, too) things in life, such as the way the sun shines through the petals on a flower, showing its structure.
