I'm from California. After college (I studied International Relations), I lived in Geneva, Paris and London for about 3.5 years. I studied Art History in London, and work in contemporary arts administration. I like the bustle of a city and cultural center, and mostly will visit art venues, old friends, and shop at markets and boutiques. I'll be self-suffiicient, but i look forward to meeting hosts and learning about the neighborhood. I speak French and am learning Italian. I look forward to my Italian trip!
