Traveling, people watching and occasionally liberating the writer inside of me are among my favorite activities. I've been Germanized (eingedeutschd). I actively correspond with people in the tradition of written letters and postcards (yes, this includes a trip to the post office to purchase stamps!). It's a dying art, one I think we should preserve.
I'm a military brat and grew up in SE Asia, but I spent my formative years in Florida and consider it home. I love college football (Go Noles!), racquetball and cycling through the city.
I can frequently be found thumbing the latest Foreign Policy, listening to a podcast, or headed to a racquetball match.
