My self-summary
I am sweet, funny, sassy, nerdy, laid back, and adventurous. I'm quiet and a little shy till I get to know you then the geeky references and friendly teasing start!

Oregon born.

I flew down the hill twice during soapbox derby in 2013 and 2014!

I enjoy biking around town, happy hour, punk and rock shows, and finding hidden jems like the painted intersections and graffiti. And discgolf!
What I’m doing with my life
I have a BS in Sociology and I was in the peace corps briefly in Liberia.

I was in the Peace Corps, teaching English - ask me about it, Benin is interesting, where vodun (voodoo) began.

I enjoy volunteering, baking, pub crawls, going to local band shows, river floats, & mayhem.

Always up for happy hour and a good time.
I’m really good at
This, that, and the other...

Making ma per snowflakes, bargaining a motor taxi ride from Mille cfa to 500 cfa, cooking with cous cous, tomatos, garlic, onions, and pineapple most nights and it is different many nights, making flash cards, picking out tissu, missing food and treats from the states
The first things people usually notice about me
Blue eyes, red and purple hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Brave New World, Stranger in a strange land, and Kushiel's Dart. - I read a lot of books.

Gogol Bordello, weird al, mc chris, and most music.

Gotcha, run lola run, and princess and the warrior.
The six things I could never do without
great friends, Burts bees lipgloss, smartphone, camera, book, BOG nachos, and a toothbrush.

Still true in africa
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Traveling around world, my peace corps adventure, and meeting new people.

How to manage my class better, ugh 6th graders are 6th graders
On a typical Friday night I am
Having more fun than you.

Wishing I was in cotonou, benin
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Buy me a couple of drinks to find out...
