My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am-among countless other things-a writer at heart, a frequent traveler of the world, a lover of conversation, a drinker of coffee, a reader of books, a musician of sorts. I was raised in Portland. I also lived, most interestingly, in Switzerland for a time. I loved it traveling in Europe and would return in a heart beat.
I enjoy riding bikes; cooking delicious meals; playing music or games, like scrabble; hosting dinner parties for friends; getting lost in new wildernesses, whether it be of cities or woods.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When still in middle-school, my parents sent me to a basketball camp in Switzerland. They swore to me that at least the counselors would be American. Well, to camp I went, and you may be sure, I expected to hear the all too familiar salutations on my arrival there ; but what was my surprise and disappointment, when, instead of this, I was obliged to answer a multitude of questions by a universal shrug, and follow a stream of instructions without being able to decipher word one of the language spoken. The whole camp spoke only Swiss German. How I managed to survive the long summer that followed is a mystery to me, but I came out intact.
