The Fun Stuff
Random thing about you? I’ve lived in both Brazil (where I taught English) and Ecuador, where I studied and worked for four years.
Funny family memory? I used to try to avoid my weekend wood-cutting chores by pretending to be asleep. It never worked.
Perfect Saturday? Hanging out with my family at the beach or in the mountains.
