DURHAM, ENGLAND 6-8
WILL BE IN AUSTRIA STARTING IN JUNE UNTIL THE REST OF THE YEAR.
I grew up in another bay area, what I like to call the bay area of the east coast along the Chesapeake Bay in the Baltimore suburbs. Growing up in the "America in Miniature" state definitely had its perks: 4 full seasons, "mountains" to the west, beaches and ocean to the east, vibrant cities in between, and family.
However, I decided it was time for a fresh start and change of scenery after college, so I accepted the offer from Berkeley and
moved out to the bay area to follow in the footsteps of Enrico Fermi and J. Robert Oppenheimer and become a nuclear scientist. I've settled in, but I could use someone caring, intelligent, down-to-earth, and fun-seeking with a "wild side" to share some quality time with.
Just in case you're a sports fanatic like I am:
I've played baseball basically ever since I could walk. My grandfather would pitch be balls in his backyard a few times a week and my dad would have me pitch to him so I ended up playing P, 1B, LF, or RF and loving hitting more than fielding. Nats and Orioles are my teams. I hate the New York Yankees, LA Angels, and Philadelphia Phillies!
As far as football goes I root for the Baltimore Ravens. I used to go to their training camp each summer and get a few signatures. I hate the Pittsburgh Steelers, New England Patriots, and New York Giants!
But the most exciting sport to watch live is definitely ice hockey! Fans are so passionate! There's something special about having a few cold brews at the rink and getting in touch with my Canadian roots! (My great-grandfather grew up in Toronto.) The Washington Capitals and San Jose Sharks are my teams (hopefully the Maple Leafs get better too!) I despise the Detroit Red Wings and Pittsburgh Penguins.
