My self-summary
Hello! I grew up and went to college in New York, but moved down here to DC for work an amazing organization that educates bright, talented students and aims to achieve meaningful social change. Few things are certain in life, but you can always count on me for a smile, a warm greeting, and a pun (or two, or three ...!). I am extremely optimistic and think that people do not laugh enough these days. My family and I are also extremely close. We live many miles apart, but we are in touch often.

Although I am very much committed to my work, I also like to relax and have fun. I love watching a good game of soccer, and although I'm not from Wisconsin, I'm a die-hard Packers fan. I practically grew up with a soccer ball by my feet, and when I wasn't on the field, I was competing in the pool, on the wrestling mat, tennis court, or track. Athletics continue to be an important aspect of my life through regular yoga sessions, running and lifting, and any rec leagues that I can squeeze into my schedule.

I am also actively discovering more about this incredible region. I achieved Eagle in scouting and my love of the outdoors continues unabated to this day. Hiking is a particular favorite, both day and over-night backpacking. I've also traveled around the world. There are a lot of amazing things in the US, but nothing here compares to the majesty of Spanish castles, or the beauty of the Australian coast. I speak a bit of Spanish, and one of my goals is to take some time and backpack in Latin and South America.

What I am looking for is someone who also has also achieved a healthy balance of work and fun. You value family, honesty, and empathy, and you would describe your self as creative and curious by nature. A love for the outdoors is a plus, and you get bonus points if you can keep up with me in your running shoes.
