I am a writer, social entrepreneur, and world traveler. I lived in West Africa from 2002 to 2006, and then moved to Seattle, Washington for an M.A. program in International Studies at the University of Washington. I now live in Portland, Oregon, when I'm not somewhere else in the world. I am currently on a five-year personal quest to visit every country in the world, and I write about the process each week.
