My self-summary
I haven't updated my responses to the questions on here in years... So they're not a reliable source of information about current me.

I am originally from Brooklyn, NY. I moved to DC for work at a research and advocacy/public policy organization and grad school.

I am passionate about social justice, and I believe that effective public policy can help create a more equitable society, so... I'm a policy nerd. But a cute one, so, there's that.

I am very independent, open minded, funny, passionate and creative (and confident obviously.. ha!).

I love my life.

Somehow I manage to be shy and outgoing, super silly and incredibly goal-oriented, a poet and practical. I'm just a cornucopia of contradictions. And having way too much fun with this. lol.

I like people who are happy with who they are, who are funny, humble and confident. People who I can have a good conversation with, do new things with, and learn from. People who can take a joke! (Seriously, if you can't take a joke... get to steppin!)

And now I'd like to open it up for questions and comments...

On a typical Friday night I am
When I start having typical Friday nights I'll let you know.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I'm at someone's house and they don't have any soap in the bathroom, I wash my hands with their face wash or shampoo. And I judge them a little.

Also- I sometimes pretend that I can shoot hadoukens.
You should message me if
You should message me if you got this far!
Especially if you're a happy person.

Fair warning: If you send a one-word message I'll probably delete it :-/
