I went to USC for my BA and MA in Econ, which means I'm a big USC football fan and a bit of a nerd at heart. That said, I try to distance myself from the stuffy Econ stereotype. Silliness is a virtue and life's too short to go through it without a smile. I like to think that I get along with most everyone. I love trying new things, whether it's a new restaurant or a new language.
I absolutely love to travel, mostly because different cultures fascinate me. My favorite place in the world is London and although my list of places to go before I die fluctuates constantly, I'd have to say that New Zealand/Australia consistently ranks pretty high.
I also really enjoy photography. Once things settle down a bit I'm planning on taking some classes and maybe buying a quality camera, but for now it's just me, my point and shoot, and a lot of trial and error. =)
