I grew up in Milwaukee, WI, did my undergrad at University of Wisconsin - Madison, and am now working on at PhD at the University of Oregon. My favorite city I've lived in is Seattle, and my favorite city I've visited is probably Madrid, but I will always miss the frozen lakes of Wisconsin winters. I love language (that's what I'm in grad school to study - language acquisition). I speak some Spanish and Danish in addition to English, and I'm casually learning Hindi, French, and python. :) I love reading fiction, drinking coffee, and watching pretty much any movie in black and white.
