Meetup Founder & Organizer


Santa Barbara, CA

Organizer since:

June 27, 2014


What makes you interested in this group?

I love people, am intrigued by exploring new places and cultures and wanted to create an opportunity for like minded people to get together and share their experiences and continue to learn. This year I traveled as a guide for a college service leadership program to Guatemala, Nicaragua, Peru and Ecuador and worked as a project manager in East Africa working with micro finance projects, women's empowerment programs. I would like to share my experiences and support others in their international pursuits and continued life long global learning.

Is there a topic or topics you would like to discuss?

I am curious to learn about projects people have participated in internationally as well as local efforts to support international causes. I would be interested in taking about cultural oddities, unique places, music, service trips and international research projects and just about anything that creates an opportunity to create an opportunity for international education while respecting diversity.

Is there a topic you might be willing to present?

I hope to share a variety of topics including discussions on Turkana women refugees in northern Kenya, African tribal politics, customs on the unique islands of Indonesia among other things.


I started this group a few years ago, to meet new people, share travel experiences and create opportunities for cross cultural exchange and international education.
