Where I’m from
Not Minnesota! This is Czech Republic.
I’ve spent three plus decades of my life in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It can be cold. It’s very flat. For some weird reason it’s a thing here to eat horrifically unhealthy fried foods served on wooden popsicle-like sticks (such as butter). But the good things have kept me here; a strong biking, music and arts scene. For an American city our size, we rank high in all things health, fitness and literacy. This has impacted what I love to do and some of my favorite things include urban bike rides, trail runs, mountain hikes, watching and playing football (soccer), drinking beer, reading and cooking. While traveling I love to look for vintage travel ads and scavenging flea markets an bookshops for old postcards. Professionally I’ve bounced around various organizations dedicated to public health, public access to green space and women’s empowerment. Currently, I’m looking for work abroad.
