Red or Green? Green! (With the exception of posole which MUST have red)

Question: What is one unusual fact about yourself?
Answer: I have always been fascinated with Asia, and studied Mandarin Chinese in undergrad and graduate school. I had the wonderful adventure to study and teach English in Taiwan and Beijing in college, and worked internationally between San Francisco and China for a number of years. Children and a love for the non-profit sector was the impetus for redirecting my energies to local sustainability, but I continue to enjoy looking at issues from both a global and local perspective, and finding opportunities to use my (now very feeble) Mandarin skills whenever possible!
