I grew up in San Francisco, CA, USA. I started going to school at a UC but then took some time off to figure out what exactly I wanted to major in. My interests are diverse and I didn't want to have to choose one subject to major in and have that be the rest of my life (linguistics, philosophy, biological psychology, culinary school, ancient history, who knows what else). I want the freedom to explore and learn what I want to, at my own pace, while sharing in the company of like-minded people. So, I quit my jobs (yes, I had multiple), sold my stuff, and worked on organic farms in Hawai‘i for most of 2011. Began 2012 by living and working in the French countryside for two months, which greatly improved my understanding of the language. But after having "backpacked" through Paris-Bruxelles-Amsterdam, linguistics and something in the line of hospitality is what I'm leaning toward. I want to contribute to something greater, and I want to have an impact on the lives of those around me. Still trying to figure out how to go about doing that. Maybe the answer will come to me after Southeast Asia. It's definitely not time yet to settle down.
 
I want to meet others who share the same aspirations of travel. A lot of my ideas come from exchanging stories with those brave individuals whose paths I don't cross often enough.
