I'm a likable nerd’s nerd who enjoys everything DC – museums, art,
music, current events . . . you name it. Thus far, this city is
like a long lost home I never knew existed. The only things missing
are someone to pass my (limited) free time with and a few necessary
stamps that I'm looking to add to my passport in the near future. I
tend to be very outgoing, whether it's in small groups or
one-on-one. I've been told I have a good sense of humor and I pride
myself on being able to hold at least a semi-intelligent
conversation about almost any subject. I'm also world-renowned for
What I’m doing with my life
I moved to the district from Florida to start law school after working in Ft. Lauderdale for several years post college. I hope to work for the federal government focused on either education, civil rights or consumer protection law (I see a natural synthesis between educational access and the broader civil rights umbrella.) All of this, of course, presupposes that my soul is worth more than the sum of my student loans. We'll see how that goes . . .
For now, I'm going to school and looking for a post graduation position with various acronym agencies. On most days, life is pretty good.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have mild Cerebral Palsy that affects my left leg and causes me
to walk with a slight limp. It doesn't impact much beyond my
childhood dreams of Olympic glory . . . yet rhythmic gymnastics
still somehow lives on ;-) If you want to know more, ask
I occasionally end sentences with emoticons.
Marionette puppets give me the creeps.
