Introducing myself and my journal
I am a student of the world. Professionally, I have worked in marketing and communications on and off for the past twelve years. Intermittently, I have succumbed to my passion to travel and experience the world, with two 2-year stints teaching ESL abroad. At heart, I am communicator and am committed to using my voice and talents to serve the wider community, particularly in highlighting human rights, poverty, inequality, and social justice.
