Bio: 
Hi! I am 28 years old and yearning to travel and experience new cultures. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. I played hockey during childhood and music has always been my passion. I studied Finance in college but have spent my time since graduation traveling with two bands, producing music, working in restaurants and running a non-profit music education program that serves under-privileged urban teens. I am searching for a new career path but I have enough saved up for "gap year" and I would love to find a program that allows me not only to experience a culture, but to contribute as well. I am most interested in traveling to Nepal and southeast Asia.
Volunteering Experience: 
I was the Program Coordinator and Lead Instructor for Arts Greenhouse, a music education non-profit that serves Pittsburgh teens from under-privileged school districts. While this was a paid job, I spent many extra hours with the students either helping them with their music or generally mentoring. The main service of Arts Greenhouse is a 4 hour Saturday workshop where teens can come and learn about and discuss music, history, social issues, etc, as well as writing, producing and performing music. For more info, go to https://www.cmu.edu/cas/community_projects/arts_greenhouse.html I tutored middle struggling middle school students, helping them with their homework, through a program at Carnegie Mellon University. I also volunteered at a local library while in high school and helped out at a weekend long cancer walk-athon.
Education: 
Bachelor in Finance from Penn State University (GPA 3.69)
Occupation: 
Restaurant server/manager
Other Skills: 
I am very knowledgeable about music theory, guitar, production and have a lot of teaching experience
I am a strong organizer and leader
I have experience painting houses and i'm handy in terms of manual labor
I also speak a little bit of French
