I grew up in NYC, but moved south to escape the cold and experience a different aspect of American culture. I started backpacking in my early 20's and have been fortunate enough to visit many countries across the globe. My most recent trips have taken me to China, Tibet, Thailand and Cambodia.
I am an avid reader and enjoy learning about history and art history. When I am not working or traveling, I enjoy gardening, listening to music, hiking and visiting with friends and family.
