I am originally from Apple Valley, Minnesota but have lived (since 2006) in Copenhagen, Denmark. I work at the UN but in my spare time I enjoy running, competing in sprint triathlons, and listening to music. The 5 things I cannot live without: sunscreen, my ipod, contact lenses, a daily planner, and a bottle opener. My favorite destinations that I have thus travelled to have been the British Virgin Islands chartering a sailboat for a week (amazing!) and Berlin - I can never get enough of that city. Also, having lived in Copenhagen for so long, I have to admit that it has a charm that is undeniable despite the many cloudy days. Once the sun comes out and the temperature goes up, the energy in Copenhagen is amazing!
