After almost 14 years in San Francisco, I returned home to New
England about two years ago. I am beyond excited to once again be
close to my family, friends, and Dunkin Donuts' coffee. I am also
really enjoying getting to know Boston....really for the first time
as an adult! I try not to take myself too seriously, and love
laughing and kidding around. I enjoy eating out with friends,
hiking, engaging conversations, enjoying the arts (music, theater,
movies, etc.) and volunteering regularly. Photography is a new
hobby for me and I am anxious to capture the places and people of
New England. Exercise is also important to me (I played sports
throughout high school and college) and provides me with a
wonderful source of relaxation.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
How each day, in every way, I am becoming a better and better person. Kidding aside, I've been thinking a lot about photography lately. I've picked it up as a hobby and have really enjoyed exercising a new part of my brain and riding a steep learning curve in a new area. Obviously, I also spend a lot of time thinking about fighting crime.
