I'm a graduate student working on my PhD in History. I live in North Carolina, but I was born, raised, and schooled, etc., in Anchorage, Alaska. Southcentral Alaska is beautiful, and I feel most at home in dramatic fjords, where tall craggy mountains edge onto cold crystal blue waters. I love exploring new places and learning about their histories and people (and their food!). I'm a historian of Britain, so I'm partial, but my favorite place is the UK, especially London. Oh, and I'm a huge tennis fan. I love to watch and to play.
