This is a home of several working professionals in our 30s from various countries. We have become friends through this special house. We keep the house exceptionally clean and sometimes share communal dinners cooked by our Italian roommate. Noise levels are low and most people are asleep by 11pm or so on weeknights. We ask guests to treat this as it if were your own home and be respectful.
Originally from the US, I lived in San Francisco for 10 years after college and worked in education reform, an area about which I am passionate. In the last year I have been living in London and working in the impact investing space, as well as working to get an ed tech start-up off the ground. I went to business school at INSEAD where I focused on social entrepreneurship and in the last three years have been lucky to live in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa, for both school and projects. I love experiencing whatever makes local culture special - from food to art to nature. I love traveling and meeting people.
