Hello! I am a graduate student pursuing a Ph.D. in Economics. I grew up in New England, and have lived on the east coast my entire life. In many ways, where I grew up has shaped who I am. I love the ocean, open spaces, and small towns. I also enjoy a good adventure!
In my spare time I like to ride my bike, rock climb, read, knit, and play board games with friends. I ride my bike every day; it is probably one of my favorite things to do. Rock climbing is a more recent interest of mine. I'm enjoying the learning curve. I've always been a reader - I read everything: novels, autobiographical work, non-fiction... economics textbooks. Knitting and board games are probably relatively self-explanatory. :)
I am an experiential traveler. I like to experience my destination. While I do like sight-seeing, I mostly enjoy walking around neighborhoods, window shopping, and talking with people. I'm fascinated by geography and climate, and like exploring natural landscapes. I have always preferred B&B lodging, and look forward to being involved with airbnb!
