My name is Debbie and I currently live, work, and play in New Delhi, India with my husband Evan.
What is Meet Me Here & There?
Because of my job(s), I live, work and study in a lot of places (6 cities, 8 jobs, and 7 organizations over 10 years). I’m constantly working to find new communities without forgetting the old – through food, travel, work, and now this blog. Meet Me Here & There helps me document the new friends and old comforts I want to share with all my family, friends, and others working on job/city #2, 3, or even 12.
What do I do for a living?
I work for the World Bank where I support transportation development projects in South Asia – mostly India and Bangladesh (rural roads, bus systems – you name it). Previously I worked for the Asia Foundation, United Nations-Habitat, Navigant Consulting, and the Urban Institute.
Where do you live?
Last year I moved to New Delhi, India from Washington, D.C.
Where are you from?
I grew up mostly in Mill Valley, California (just north of San Francisco), but also went to middle school in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Where and what did you study?
I received a BA in economics from UC Berkeley, and a masters in city planning and international development from MIT.
Where do you travel?
I do the majority of my travel for work within India these days, but I usually spend my free time nesting in whatever city I currently call home.
