I love almost anything outdoors -- the beach, biking, skiing, hiking, and long walks around Boston listening to podcasts like The Moth or This American Life. I also love hearing live music (middle east, paradise, beehive, etc) and seeing independent films. I love to travel and am on a bit of an Asia kick. Last winter I visited Indonesia and this winter I'll be checking out Thailand and Burma/Myanmar. I've been practicing yoga for a long time and have taught in the past.
I came up to Boston originally for a dual degree program in Social Work and Public Health. I work in the field of refugee mental health. I really love what I do even though it can be hard at times. I love learning about other cultures and my clients give me a perspective on the world I would never otherwise have.
I'm a friendly and laid-back person -- so much so that I'm sometimes mistaken for a West Coaster despite my definite East Coast roots :)
