Logistics: I grew up in Southern California, moved to North Carolina at age 16 (Raleigh area), and then moved to Charlotte at age 21 to finish school. Although I'm a "Yankee" to you Southern Folk, I really feel like I fit in here, and I love the South!
In a nutshell, I try to remain optimistic in all situations, laugh uncontrollably, am down-to-earth, and consider myself feisty and playful (not sure whether that's good or bad, haha). I love intellectual stimulation (whether it be conversations, music, reading a good book, etc.) and am consequently a "deep" thinker. I'm lucky that my profession calls for such thinking, but it's nice to find like-minded individuals outside of my career to "think" with (hint, hint...)
