Why do you do what you do?
I grew up outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and went directly to college in the Midwest after high school. I had never been outside North America until a semester abroad during my junior year of college. That semester changed my life and ever since then I have had a thirst for other cultures and other places. I have now travelled and lived in over 70 different countries – and counting!
