The background: Originally from San Clemente, Southern California. Played volleyball in college and trained as an urban planner at UC Irvine. Took a random job for a non-profit and developed a love for environmental work. Then realized I needed more education to move ahead. Moved to Sweden for a Master's degree in Aquatic Ecology at Lund University in 2010. Love it here; decided to stay.
The breakdown: I have now started my own environmental management company focusing on the Baltic Sea and am excited to see where it takes me. I am hopelessly addicted to the ocean. I love the feeling that I can make a difference in the world and that drives me to always improve myself and learn about the world. Good god, that sounds like a line from the Miss America Pageant! I swear it's true though. Next year, I will conquer world peace ;)
The random essence: My childhood super power used to be falling asleep in ANY position. I am extremely disappointed I no longer have that power :(. If I could play any instrument perfectly it would be the banjo. If I were a deity, I would give mean people T-Rex arms... you still have them, but can't use them for anything. Good luck passing the salt. Muahaha! Either that or give people a super strong sense of smell. Let's face it, there are more bad smells out there than good ones!
Somehow those things seem essential to understanding my character, so there you go :)
Oh and Scorpio and a firm INTP ... if you are into that sort of thing.
