Hi, my name is Kris (short for Kristine) and I live in rainy, but beautiful city of Portland, Oregon (USA). I have a degree in biology and ecology and work as a biologist on aquatic restoration projects with fish and wildlife for the Federal government here in the Pacific northwest. I am an active member of a rowing club, and spending most mornings each week on the water.
When I'm not busy with work or rowing, I love to spend time outside (my job is more of a desk job than "real" biology). If the weather is rainy and cold, I love to stay inside and cook, and eat, and I also love writing and reading.
I'm looking forward to exploring as much of the world as possible now that I'm not popping around in school and between jobs. My travel style: Living how the locals live while eating as much delicious food as possible!
