About me

Gender FEMALE
Location Canada
Introduction i grew up in canada and spent some time wandering mexico and south africa before settling on pursuing a career in international development. i ended up in the uk to study, in kenya to work, in germany to live, back to my hometown to figure out what i want to be when i grow up, and now i am in liberia for a spell.
Interests travelling, reading, running, hiking, those great conversations that you walk away feeling better for having had, knitting, cooking and eating good food, the company of great friends and my family, airports, taking photos of doors, german and czech beer, planning and organising, following international events and pondering if all the money and effort put into international development does a damn thing, photography, red wine (yes, it can be an interest)
