Hello! I'm currently living in Portland, Oregon, working as a program manager for a non-profit. Previously, I attended Northwestern University in Chicago and pursued a degree in social policy, with a focus on environmental policy.
I enjoy cooking, reading, photography, and spending time with friends. I prefer coffee over tea, bourbon cocktails over gin cocktails, and sharing small plates over ordering a main entree. Spending time in nature rejuvenates and relaxes me, so I try to go hiking, camping, and exploring here in the NW as much as I can. My boyfriend is an avid rock climber, and I'm trying to get into that new activity as well.
As a guest, I'm respectful, appreciative, and neat. When in a new city, my favorite things to do are to try new cafes and restaurants, visit parks and museums, and walk as much as possible to get a feel for the spirit of the place.
