Born in Singapore, living in Connecticut. Loves cooking, backpacking, and enjoys a good cup of coffee. Enjoys long conversations about food, travel, and microfinance. I've had the privilege to live in Uganda, Thailand, and India in different points in my life and also work with indigenous groups and organizations at the grassroots level. One of the most epic trips was travelling to the Himalayas in India last summer from the foothills in Shimla all the way to the little Tibetan sanctuary in Leh, and witnessing the terrain transform from sandy dunes, to thriving grasslands, and snowy peaks along the way.
