About me:

What brought me to Like a Local my desire to travel and learn about cultures. I studied abroad in Denmark for a year during college and was able to visit 10 other countries. As an American I started to see how different cultures can really evolve or stay very homogeneous.

I grew up in Newport RI which is one of America's old dense colonial seaports. Now I live in Chicago, IL and have also lived in Ithaca, NY and Washington, DC. Maybe one day I will really settle down but I think I am moving to Boston next...
