For as long as I remember, my first loves are travel and books. I took a round-the-world tour in 1994 thinking that would satiate my hunger for adventure. Instead, it fed the wanderlust! Since then, I've traveled to Brazil, El Salvador, Europe, Canada, and many other countries, looking for the world's finest places. I'm willing to sweat to get there, learn new languages, and think on my feet. I lived in China in 1994 and 1995 and return every few years to keep my tones sharp and see another new corner of the Middle Kingdom.
