I'm a photo editor and photographer who loves travel, my family, bicycles, yoga, my cat, and good food. I speak a smattering of languages: fairly fluent in Spanish, basics in French, mostly bad words in Italian, and ein bisschen German.
I'm a homebody with a vagabond heart; I love to get out and explore but I equally value a comfortable place to call home while on the road. As a guest I'm clean, quiet, and respectful. I enjoy so much being able to stay in other people's homes that I always treat them as I would my own.
When I travel I'm usually working as well, so I get up early and stay out late for sunrises and sunsets. I usually catch a cat-nap during the day and like to have a cozy space to work on my laptop with wifi. I'm usually on a budget, so enjoy having a small kitchen space to help save on food expenses, although I also love dining out at the best neighborhood spots.
Favorite places: Cape Town, New Orleans, Spain, Myanmar. Places I can't wait to see: Peru, Argentina, Cambodia, Croatia. I'm a native Oregonian, currently calling Oregon home when I need an address.
