My parents owned a pastry shop, so from a young age I was instilled
with a firm conviction that dinner should be followed by
cheesecake, chocolate pastries, or at least frozen yogurt or a
milkshake. Luckily, I’m in the process of moving back to Arlington,

artisan gelato joints per capita.
To earn my appetite, I like to take conditioning classes or play
tennis and fine-tune my strokes. Hopefully this is the year my
serve will crack 100 mph, but until then I’m just reading “Winning
Ugly” by Brad Gilbert.
After a day of work or exercise, I like to usually read (currently
enjoying my first Philip Roth read, "The Human Stain"). There’s a
long wait in my Netflix queue, full of current recommendations as

use...or at least be useful for one question at trivia night.
