Creative Works

My background is in medical anthropology, so I like asking big complicated questions about health, humans, and cultures. I love language learning and traveling. I would like to see all the world has to offer. I am an avid reader and I dabble in fiction writing. In my spare time, I like to watch trashy TV and movies, going hiking or rock-climbing, or relaxing with a game (video or board).
