I love DC -- I've been here since 2006 with one stint overseas in there. Grad school at Georgetown. I grew up doing a lot of hiking, camping, and boating, and miss that sometimes. Any activity on the water -- or the beach -- makes me happy.
I travel for work and whenever else I can. Just came back from a quick trip to Mexico City and another to Guatemala. I speak some Spanish. My work is important to me, and sometimes I probably do too much of it.
Childhood in Cincinnati, so I'm a Bengals and Reds fan. High school in Colorado. I exercise as much as I can - probably happiest when I work out 5 or 6 days a week. I try to get together with friends to play some kind of sport once or twice a week.
I'll be more than happy to share more, but I feel like that's what first dates are for, right?
Music - Pandora stations include: Black Keys, James Taylor, Kings of Convenience, Jack Johnson, the Frames, Kings of Leon, Manu Chau, Alabama Shakes, Bob Dylan, Punch Brothers, Ben Harper, and if I'm really honest, the soundtrack to the movie Once
Food - Some favorite restaurants, as much for sentimental value as food, are Zaytinya, Tabard Inn, Estadio... New favorites include Indigo, Daikaya, and maybe odd but Duke's Grocery
Opportunities to do good work
Inspiration and community
(But seriously, coffee)
(On the other hand, it probably won't work out if you: a) believe the federal government spends too much on a social safety net for the poor, or b) live way outside the city. No offense, just trying to save everyone some time.)
