~Rita Mae Brown
I grew up in California native and have made DC my home for a few years (along with a year in South America).
I enjoy meeting new people, exploring cultural events, and being there for my friends and family. I like salsa dancing, live music, and that kind of thing, but also relaxing or getting outside to hike.
Most of my career I've been focused on international development (with some local politics mixed in), and now I work for a government agency focused on international business. I like to write and do other creative stuff, too.
Dancing (mostly salsa and bachata these days).
Listening to people.
Learning new languages.
Shows: Parks and Recreation, Modern Family, Arrested Development, The Daily Show, Colbert, Conan.
Music: Alternative rock, Spanish music (Los Piojos, Julieta Viniegas, Manu Chao, salsa), Jazz (Brubeck, Davis, Evans, Monk, Hancock).
Periodicals: The Atlantic, the Economist (though not as into it as I used to be), the New Republic, politics and personal growth blogs.
Food: Mexican, Italian, Chinese, Thai, or anything creative :)
2) Family and Friends (OK, maybe that's two things, and yes, people aren't things.)
3) Something to write or draw on
