Since I was a little child growing up in Vermont, I've always wanted to travel the world. I have a great sense of international identity and pick up languages easily. I enjoy attempting to adapt to different cultures while I'm travelling, becoming part of the experience, instead of merely viewing it from behind the velvet ropes. As long as I can remember, I've never really felt like I was at home, but always looking forward to the next new place to visit and next world to encounter. I don't see myself as an American so much as a citizen of the world, and I hope I exude that quality to all who meet me.
