I am insatiably curious about our world, and the people in it. I grew up getting lost in the pages of National Geographic, the World Almanac, Ripley's Believe It Or Not and various World Atlases. This thirst for knowledge has led me on various adventures around the world. I have been fortunate to travel to over sixty countries, and met countless interesting characters. Nepal is one of my favorite places in the world.
