I am a 29 year-old female living in Zürich, Switzerland and working in both the cities of Zürich and Basel as an English teacher. In Basel, I am employed by the University of Basel in the field of English linguistics. I've been living in Switzerland since 1990 but grew up in Los Angeles. I visit the United States on a regular basis, whether to see friends on the West Coast or enjoy a vacation on the East Coast. Working in the field of language, I am very interested in different languages and cultures. As Switzerland is a multilingual country itself, I speak quite a few languages (English, German, French, Italian).
