I'm originally from the Midwest and while I haven't lived there for over 10 years, I'm an Indiana girl at heart.
I moved to DC three years ago after five years of exploring the world. In this past life - I lived for extended periods of time in Central America, West Africa and Australia. A global perspective and worldview are important to me. While most days I miss my adventures abroad, I'm happy to be closer to family and good friends.
I moved back for my job, but the fall leaves have kept me here. I do miss the hot summers of the tropics.
I am good company, funny, positive, and kind. I take life seriously, but not myself - I'm the first one to laugh and can handle a good joke. I am the oldest of four children and play the role of eldest child quite well. I love to tell a story and have strong opinions, but can keep them to myself if company requires.
I love a day trip to the Shenandoah, dinner on 14th street, playing tour guide to visitors, or a cheeky beer on H Street.
I love reading the Sunday paper and drinking coffee all day. If I lived closer to family, I'd do the crossword puzzle with my dad every weekend.
