  • My status


  • Description

    I'm Ellery, and I'm currently living the spontaneous, contemplative existance of the modern 20-something. For me, that meant leaving college, dropping everything and getting on a plane to anywhere.
    (This dramatic impulse seized me in March 2020, so my travel experience has been more challenging than expected)

    Some things about me: I plan to go back to school to study evolutionary biology and wildlife science (see my photos!). I am also really interested in astronomy and physics. Would love to learn some new skills if you're willing to teach me. I'm not so interested in being a tourist.

    These past few months I've spent volunteering have been the strangest and best of my life. I'm happy to help and lend my time and skills in any way I can - I want to make your life easier :)

  • What else ...

    I am religious. I keep Shabbat (Meaning I don't work, cook, drive, or use electronics from Friday evening to Saturday evening).

    I've learned that this all really comes down to honesty and good communication, so that's what I will bring and ask of you too :)
