My parents are from New York, but I was born and raised in North Carolina (Go Heels!). I just finished up a 3 year stint in St. Louis, the greatest formerly great city in the country, and a one year experiment in DC.
DC adventures included the spy museum, ghost tours, 4th of July fireworks, and sports on the National Mall. I love the friends I made in the area, but I love being home. I'm optimistic NC can match DC if I have the right partner along for the ride.
