I value connection and communication. I value flexibility and creativity whether cooking food or trying something new at a wonderful restaurant. I believe when I travel that the best things happen when the plan falls apart -- as new doors open for exploration and personal growth. Travel to Asia is a part of my work as a doctoral student -- with goal of becoming a professor in religious studies/history -- and would love a partner (and family) willing to explore China, Tibetan areas and India. I am new to Chicago, love sports and exploring the nooks of the city, as well as meeting new and exciting people. Want to come with me?
