Born and raised on the CA coast, sunshine makes me happiest.
Adventurer with an unquenchable wanderlust! I spent 3 months living Northern India and relished every second of the calm, chaos, color, heat, and beauty. I have a special connection to Thailand as my dad was in Peace Corps there in the 70's. It was the first place I traveled to when I was 4 and I grew up with the food and culture. Living in Italy, learning Italian, eating pasta daily, and traveling around Europe, like many college kids, was one of the best adventures! I plan to hit South & Central America next!
Always cooking or looking at food, I typically cook healthy food at home with fresh local ingredients, but am enjoying exploring the city through new restaurants, cuisines and especially Brunch. Some of my favorite restaurants are Le Diplomat, Compass Rose, and Little Serow. I have a restaurant list!

One of the highlights of moving to DC is having my family close and getting to spend time with them.
