Studied political communications, then lived in DC from '06-'08. Realized I couldn't handle the pettiness. Moved to rural Morocco from 2008-2010 to work with the Ministry of Youth and Sports (INCREDIBLE). I spent the last year studying education policy in northern Africa and the Sahel. I'm also an avid hobbyist of languages and etymology.
I LOVE walking. I probably walk between 5-8 miles per day. Great (low-impact) exercise. I explore new areas, do errands...and I love putting on some music or an audiobook and having an excuse to be outdoors (especially in the cold weather)!
Also, I have successfully escaped quicksand. BAM.
