I am originally from Chile; I have been in the Washington DC area since I came from my home country, in 2004. I work at the Inter-American Development Bank at the Climate Change and Sustainability Division. Before coming to the US I worked as a park ranger in Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia, Chile. I am very conscious about environmental issues and our planet. I was vegetarian for almost 8 years then I have included some fish to my diet. I try to support local business as well as organic family-owned farms.
