I'm originally from Charleston, S.C., but most recently from New York, where I went to grad school for journalism. I'm a young, laidback kid who loves to learn, ask questions, travel, meet people and experience new cultures. I think sharing meals is the best way to get to know a person/people/society. I love reading--even though I hated it growing up. I love nonfiction and stories written about journalists about their experiences. Favorite books include Eating Mudcrabs in Kandahar, Pinochet and Me, Dirty Secrets Dirty War and Without Fidel.
