I am a curious individual who is always searching for what's best
and what's right. I love to travel and explore new places. I am
drawn to the Middle East and North Africa, as well as anything
Francophone. I enjoy meeting new people and learning about their
lives. My Christian faith is important to me. I think life is about
experiencing, accepting, learning, dreaming- all while moving
(hopefully in a forward motion).
What I’m doing with my life
Originally from Kansas, I live in DC and work in international
education development. My project deals with school dropout
prevention in four different countries- Tajikistan, Timor-Leste,
Cambodia and India.
I’m really good at
networking, listening, making others feel at ease, exploring,
discovering, and shopping.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes and my voice.

Food: I always like trying new stuff. I love good Moroccan! I like
foods you can dip into sauces. I love desserts too much.
The six things I could never do without
faith in God,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why things are how they are, my blessings, injustices in the world
and figuring out what God wants for my future.
On a typical Friday night I am
with friends getting dinner or hanging out at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
hmmmm...I really like shoes...?
You should message me if
you enjoy discovering and trying new things; if you like to be
goofy yet serious at times; if you're serious about knowing Jesus
