I love to travel, have visitors, and meet cool people from around the world. My favorite travel destinations are tropical ones with beautiful beaches, and mountains to hike around in. To me there is nothing better than swimming in the ocean, running on the beach, and eating fresh fish & fruit. I learned Spanish in Caracas, Venezuela in an exchange program at Centro Venezolano Americano. I taught English & learned Spanish in the school, and made many wonderful friends. Then I worked as a journalist at The Daily Journal, the English language newspaper of Venezuela. That was a great experience because I was the cultural reporter and wrote about the arts, theater, music, and dance scenes in Caracas. I also got to meet & interview most of the ambassadors there, and write reports about their countries, and the activities of their embassies in Venezuela. I ended up living there for three years and having a fabulous time. Then I traveled around Colorado, Oregon, and California selling Venezuelan artesanía at art fairs in mountain towns. I hung out in Berkeley for awhile until my uncle convinced me to move to Maui. That was a great idea! I moved to Maui to go to massage school and stayed 5.5 years having a good time. I worked as a massage therapist at a hotel on the beach and was a DJ at night. I got to DJ for many wonderful weddings in gorgeous Hawaiian settings. I also held down a great Friday night party at Jacques' in Paia for four years. That was a blast, and I got to meet cool music lovers from all over the world. Now I manage a beach house in Santa Teresa Costa Rica. This is a wonderful town, and I'm very happy to live here. I recommend I visit; it's awesome for surfing & other activities.
