I claim Wisconsin (see, already awesome), but have lived on both coasts and in central Asia. I have an environmental background in work and education but now work in commercial real estate and invest pension fund equity in emerging neighborhoods with a local developer.
My ideal local weekend getaway is canoeing down a VA river with friends. If I had time for longer trips it would be to travel back to some of the countries I visited when backpacking around Eastern Europe, Asia and SE Asia after the Peace Corps.
Free time - I used to play a lot of volleyball and basketball and need to get back into them. Hike and bike when I can find the time. Build or fix almost anything out of wood. Wish I had more time to read. Have attempted to garden, but feel this might be a longer journey. I also kill at scrabble and cornhole.
I've been known to tear it up out on the town, but mostly find myself with friends bbqing early and having cocktails late.
I have miles of patience and tend to be rather calm in emergencies. I find humor where others don't and am ridiculously optimistic, but my penchant for sarcasm masks this well.
