People have variously described me as smart, sarcastic, thoughtful, funny, small in size but large in personality, creative, classy, having a voice that sounds very different on the phone vs. real life, fiery, cranky after night shifts, and as the whitest looking half-Puerto Rican they've met.
I grew up outside of D.C, went to NYC for college and kind of reluctantly came back for work after school. For some reason I was really disdainful of D.C as a teenager (probably because teenagers are generally awful) but I've grown to realize that it can be kind of awesome. Or was I right as a teenager and now D.C is just better than it was? I don't know. I was probably both awful AND right.
As much as I enjoy D.C these days, I absolutely intend to move away within the next 5 years, at least for a period of time. Part of what's great about my job is that I can work almost anywhere.
