I'm a Denver native. The Colorado lifestyle is very appealing (who can argue with 300+ days of sun!) but promises of advanced education brought me to Hartford.
I love travel (highly recommend the Eastern European countries), politics (conversing, exchanging ideas), social action (doing something... anything... to better this world), and apparently parentheses.
On a lighter note, I am also a bit of a gaming geek. I love challenging games of Scrabble or all out Risk-style strategy games. And fun little card games that last 5-10 minutes. It's the fun things in life that keep the brain going!
