I study digital media and civic engagement. I've run nonprofits, and worked at a charitable foundation. I've lived briefly in Africa, traveled a bunch in Europe and would like to explore more of Asia and S America next. My style of hosting is low-key but very accessible: I check email constantly and am very responsive. With a bunch of friends in the area including my girlfriend, I can ensure pretty fast response times. I speak basic French, some Spanish, mostly English.
