Easygoing, eclectic, spontaneous, and open minded. I've lived in
Barcelona, Paris, Amsterdam, NYC, Paris, and Addis Ababa for
school, work and fun. Now that I'm back in New York, I'm generally
looking to meet new and interesting people with a willingness to
try new things w/ a laid back attitude.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for an international NGO that focuses on girls' and women's
rights in Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America. I'm also
working towards a PhD in Sociology and I sing the blues.

The six things I could never do without
my closest friends/family, meaningful conversation, off the map
travel, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Fest, my dog B.B. King,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
happiness; what to try to accomplish next; where I'd like to visit
and how to make all three happen.
On a typical Friday night I am
enjoying food, wine, and music amongst friends
