Hi, my name is Sylvia! I'm originally from metro-Atlanta, and I've been addicted to travel since childhood. So far I've been to a dozen countries and I'd like to visit dozens more! I spent three years living in Japan, where I acquired an appreciation for many strange vegetables and fermented foods.
I am a vegetarian, a rubbish collector, and an idealist. I hold a B.A. in Studio Art as well as a Master’s in International Relations. I find my art, humanity, and concern for global affairs to be inextricably linked, and therefore don’t consider this apparent ‘field shift’ to be an odd one. I am married to a US Navy Corpsman and we have two cats.
