Born and raised in downtown Chicago, moved to LA three years ago by way of NC, DC, and briefly NYC. I would describe myself as outgoing and laid back, but also opinionated and professionally driven. (...Like motivated, not chauffeured.) I appreciate sarcasm, banter, and puns. Even bad ones. (See above.) I'm an active person and love the outdoors. With a few big exceptions, I'd rather play sports than watch them, but I do both regularly. I am determined to use my snowboard more than once this year. These days I've been trying to make time for beach volleyball and biking, but I'm also a fan of the wine and movie night in or just hitting a local bar.
As for other interests, I like to cook, but I live by myself so it's possible I'm not very good at it. I definitely can't bake, but I excel at eating baked things. I also enjoy photography, especially landscapes and wildlife. And speaking of animals, I grew up with golden retrievers and am a [big] dog person. But I can tolerate cats—if they act like dogs.
