Bio

My favorite thing to do is travel.  I grew up in rural Vermont from when I was born in 1992 until my family moved to Ipswich, Massachusetts, in 1997. During my childhood, I spent a lot of time exploring the New England states and visiting my grandparents in Florida.  My parents took my brother and me on many trips, including a drive from Boston to Wyoming, a tour of Costa Rica, visits with my mom's family in Greece, and a hiking trip around Washington and Montana.  From 2010 until 2015, I attended Cornell University in Upstate NY, studying archaeology and landscape architecture. During my time at Cornell, I worked one summer on archaeological excavations in Greece and Peru, spent another summer bicycling from Boston to San Francisco, and spent a third summer studying Spanish in Valencia, Spain.  After I graduated, I decided to do a long trip, aiming to spend as long as I could traveling using the money I had saved up.  In fall 2015 I bought a one-way ticket to Copenhagen, then spent the next four months bouncing from city to city across Europe.  I am half Greek, and during the trip was able to obtain a Greek citizenship.  After the money I had allotted had almost run out, I planned on returning home to Boston, but then my brother started studying abroad in Hanoi, Vietnam.  Because of this, I decided to buy a flight going the opposite way around the world and visit him on my way back.  I ended up falling in love with northern Vietnam, and got a job working in Ha Giang province for three months.  Before eventually returning home in summer 2016, I did two more weeks of travel around the rest of Southeast Asia.  Back in Massachusetts, all I could think about was traveling again, and in particular visiting places that were still off the beaten track.  In early 2017 my family wanted to do a trip to Panama, but I convinced them instead to travel to the tiny island country of Dominica.  Over the summer of 2017, I worked as an archaeologist in Barrow, Alaska, where I experienced what it was like to live in the high arctic. That fall, I moved to New York City, where I got a job as a photography teacher.  During spring break I had time to explore Georgia and Armenia.  Over the summer of 2018, I went to a wedding in Copenhagen, after which I did a shorter recreation of my 2015 trip, visiting European friends I made during my time spent studying in Spain.  My dream trips: motorbiking around Tajikistan and Central Asia, road tripping through Central America, visiting Iraqi Kurdistan and Iran, traveling around the mountain villages of the Russian Caucasus, traveling around southern and western China, finally visiting Africa and Oceania.
