About me

Location somewhere north of the equator
Introduction Among other things, I'm a former nursing aide trying to conquer medical school. Fortunate enough to have been able to travel a bit, I've picked apricots in central Anatolia, worked at medical clinics in rural Asia, hitchhiked across Europe and snorkeled in Mexico. I love hearing stories, meeting new people and having adventures. Having spent a couple of years without a home has triggered a deep need to nest and a strong appreciation for my sanctuary.
Interests I'm not interested in, accounting, traffic, or bureaucratic paperwork.
