Born and raised on Long Island , bachelor's near Boston, Americorps and other odds and ends in CO, master's in NYC, and now I have the coolest job ever in the wonderful world of international volunteering. Seriously, I love my job and never in a million years thought that I would find a job that let's me pay the bills and get to volunteer all over the world. It blows my mind.
I love to travel and try to push myself to find new adventures that are out of my comfort zone. I don't feel like I've ever gotten home from a "scary" trip without feeling completely amazed and everything that's out there, even if things don't always go as plan (because they rarely do). I just returned from a couple of weeks in West Africa (remind me to tell you the story about my visit to the bonesetter) and am thinking about planning my very first (truly) solo adventure to Berlin this spring. That's not to say that roadtripping and domestic adventures go on the "less than" list. Some of my favs include the Black Hills, southern AK, and Telluride CO.
Dumplings are, without question, the most delicious food ever (total FACT)
Love being in the BK, but I feel the most like myself when I'm playing outside ... Mts, lakes, etc.
I started playing the banjo too late in life to ever get good, but that doesn't stop me from tormenting all of those who are drunk enough to listen
I climb rocks
If you're .... Honest, adventurous, positive, and I have to say it ... can make me pee from laughing so hard, chances are, we'll get along just fine.
You've EVER considered (even if it was for a fleeting moment) that it would be cool to work a season at McMurdo station.
You get super happy any time you hear "Our House" by CSNY http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnHPVGjDb-w (you're welcome)
Oh, also, if you listen to the Big Broadcast on WFUV or Mudd Up on FMU and we happen to grab a drink together, remind me that I owe you a hi-five.
