I'm a lawyer at a non-profit--I work on housing, public benefits,
and health law. I work hard and play hard. I just moved to the Bay
Area a couple of years ago. I'm from a small rural farming town in
Northern California, went to UCLA, then hit up DC for awhile before
going to law school in Iowa (Go Bruins and Hawkeyes!).
I have an affinity for good beer and cheap wine. I'm a quick
grocery shopper. I like news, coffee, people who are funny,
politics, sports, dive bars, cooking, adventures, biking, zombies,
and flip flops.
