Hello! I am a fair trade advocate based in the United States whose day job is as a visual merchandising stylist and retail manager. In addition to promoting and educating about fair trade, my interests include home design & organization, cooking, amateur gardening and living simply. I live in a charming and drafty 100-year-old house where I enjoy working on diy and craft projects, gardening, listening to good music, and reading stacks of library books, magazines, and browsing blogs. I have traveled to 13 countries and hope my next trip abroad will allow me to meet more of the amazing people whose products I buy and sell.
