I'm originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota. For the last 3 years I've lived in Chicago. I currently am the Creative Projects Manager for the non-profit Chicago Run, which provides free running programs to Chicago Elementary and Middle schools to help get more students active during the school day. In college, I studied International Studies, Fine-Art and Spanish. Via study abroad programs, I've spent a few months in Mendoza, Argentina and Lima, Peru. Since then, I've continued developing this love for travel in Colombia, Mexico and the United States (Louisiana, New York, Michigan, etc). Aside from working and vacationing, I enjoy building things, making art, power-tools, cooking food, drinking wine, yoga, running, meeting new people, teaching ESL classes and spending time with my new dog, Kanga.
I am definitely not a high-maintance traveler, enjoy simple living and am very clean and respectful.
