I grew up in Ohio and like to travel even before taking a year of international service. Now I live in Chicago and work in international development with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Life and travel have taught me to be laid back, always flexible, and--most importantly--to have a sense of humor. I love playing games, playing music (violin and mandolin), and my fiancé, Jen. I always travel with a good book. I'm always up for meeting new people, so if there's anything else you'd like to know about me, just ask!
