Hi! I was born in LaPaz, Bolivia 28 years ago and rode in a pickup truck bed along death road on my last trip there in 2016. It was worth it. I also tried goat brain on the same trip. Not so worth it.

I grew up in Annapolis, Maryland and there's about as many boat shoes as there are crabs in the Chesapeake Bay. I learned how to sail once when I was 15 and forgot everything about it a week later. At least I can say I learned how to sail, right?

I speak Spanish fluently and like to write and speak in both languages, so much that I went to college in Rexburg, Idaho for it. Even autocorrect doesn't know where Rexburg is – but that's okay, still a great place. I studied mass media and graduated with honors. My mom cried at convocation, but she also cried when she saw Twilight. So I'm not totally sure how to feel about that.

My most favorite app on my phone is Seamless ... behind Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, of course. Gotta get those Insomnia cookies in while scrolling through what's trending at 1am sometimes, know what I mean?

Now that we've gotten this out of the way, I look forward to meeting you and talking about what makes your organization great; and how I'm ready to make it better.
