I'm originally from the Midwest (specifically, Minneapolis), and friends describe me as a thoughtful, sincere, bright, and fun-loving goofball who laughs a lot and is passionate about life. I love my family and friends dearly, so I try to spend as much time with them as possible. Music, movies, theatre, photography, design, technology, computer graphics, and politics are amongst the great passions in my life. There has always been something special about music in particular that connects to the very core of my being; I absolutely love it.
I enjoy going to concerts, plays, musicals, the symphony, and museums whenever possible, and of course, there's no better place for cultural pursuits than New York. I have a deep appreciation for innovative design, architecture, and urban planning. I experience frequent bouts of wanderlust, and am always trying to do more traveling. Outside of NYC, Sydney, Berlin, Prague, Amsterdam, Tokyo, Hong Kong, London, Paris, Toronto, San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, and Minneapolis are amongst my favorite cities so far. Travel + Photography = Heaven. I'm a sucker for Disney World. I love exploring cities, good food, ice skating in Bryant Park, the magic of New York during the holidays, wandering along the High Line, long walks or hikes, running in Central Park, regular exercise and keeping fit, making a fool of myself while dancing, making a fool of myself while not dancing, parsing the difference between "nerd," "geek," and "dork," playing with other people's doggies (I can't wait to have one of my own again), shuffling through my absurdly large music library, tinkering with my MacBook, science, technology (especially related to Apple, movies, and music), and thoughtful political discussions. Also, run-on sentences.
