I hail from Oregon. I grew up as a country bumpkin chasing horses and taking hikes with family. Some highlights of my life so far have been traveling to France and other parts of Europe, and eventually to Senegal. I have climbed or attempted several of the mountains in Oregon. I love to travel and learn languages.
