I am originally from Baltimore, MD and currently live in Washington, DC. In the past, I've lived in France, Kyrgyzstan, and Turkey. I teach English as a Second Language at a community college. I love to travel, read, write poetry, dance, eat my boyfriend's delicious cooking, hear good stories, meet good people, and just generally learn new things. As a guest or housemate, I'm quiet, clean, and respectful.
