“I am flexible, playful, and can sometimes see the good in bad situations before others do. When traveling, I rarely visit touristic areas and often find myself in someone’s kitchen eating or drinking in a local household. I’m curious about how people live their world and can make friends easily. I enjoy the unknown and the chance to discover as we take one foot in front of the other. At work and in life, you’ll often hear me say ‘give me ambiguity, or give me something else’. ”
