I'm a navy brat, got to live around the world but was born in MD, went to college in North Carolina and ended up back in DC as a sort of grown up.
I really like food and I really like music. I play the piano. Eating and making/or listening to music are easily my favorite activities. I also really like traveling, especially when I can eat really delicious food and listen to really good music while doing so. I care about social and economic justice and I generally try to surround myself with people who feel the same way; bonus points if you actually spend your days trying to bring a little more justice to the world.
Here's a list of things that make me laugh, because laughing is important, and if you also find these things funny we might possibly get along: "that's what he/she/they said" jokes, most inappropriate jokes, rowdy games of telephone pictionary, the Office, awkward coworkers who remind me of Office characters, Liz Lemon, the "shit white girls say to black girls video," sarcasm, Louie CK, the list goes on.
What I’m doing with my life
I work at a nonprofit where I spend my days expanding economic
opportunity for all Americans. But really, I manage a couple
programs that deal with affordable home ownership and
I’m really good at
Piano-ing, consuming large amounts of cupcakes and other sweet
foods, and being super awkward especially when trying my hardest to
be completely normal.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next meal..
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends or sleeping.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll come back to this when I can think of something witty to say.
