I am originally from St. Louis, then lived for ten years in Wilmington, North Carolina where I worked as a makeup artist in the film industry. Now I am an expressive arts therapist in Portland, Oregon. I love to explore new places, meet new people and ride my bike!
I have travelled a lot in my life, but not as much in the past few years. I want to change that! I love Northern California, Vermont. I would like to see more of Europe. I would like to start, however, with exploring more of the great Pacific Northwest where I live!
Generally, I try to travel pretty light. I am flexible and love to explore where the locals go, not the usual tourist places. I love animals, but don't travel with any. I enjoy trying the local food in family-owned restaurants, and to experiment with cooking with local ingredients where I travel if I get the chance.
I'd love to have a place where I can host travelers; this is a goal of mine for the near future!
