I have an odd appreciation for dubstep, love dogs and miss Buenos
Aires, where I lived for two years before moving back to D.C.
I have a good sense of humor. I'm sarcastic, but not mean about it.
My friends would say I'm mildly eccentric.
I want to keep traveling and try a few quirky online business ideas
(a Grubhub-type food delivery service in Latin America would kill
it or, more altruistically, a penpal-like language learning service
What I’m doing with my life
I travel a lot, spend time with my friends, take hikes in Rock Creek, and try to find new spots to chill in DC that aren't super pretentious.
I teach new media strategy at UVA and own a business that sells environmentally-friendly kitchenware.
I’m really good at
I know a little about a lot of different things. I speak four languages. I can rock various 90s dance moves, including many that can be attributed to Kid 'n Play.
I'm also really good at accidentally ending up being interviewed on the TV or radio.
The first things people usually notice about me
My Bill Clinton chin.
