I am a researcher interested in public policy, working at the University of Alaska. My husband and I live in a leafy neighborhood in Fairbanks, with colorful neighbors (one of our neighbors tried to live in a plane!). We recently built a new house, and enjoy all (or most) of the seasons here in Interior Alaska. For fun, we often drive down to Denali NP and go hiking, with a stop at our favorite restaurant, 229 Parks. I always travel with my iPhone and my virtual crickets and rain for good sleep! I speak a little Svenska, not a lot of French. I'm working on my French this summer.
