My hobbies include performing comedy, staying active + healthy, cooking, and creating. I love snuggling up to watch a film or read. Washington DC is now my stomping ground, and I love all this city has to offer, though I'm originally from Central Florida and am a Floridian at heart.
I won the lottery when it comes to families. I'm part of a wonderful, loving, supportive family (immediate and extended!), and keep in touch with friends from childhood and beyond. I love cultivating and strengthening friend and family connections. My local friend network is fantastic, too, and I'm lucky to have many members of my "DC family".
I'm also half-Dominican and embrace my Latin side whenever possible. Sporadic hip-shaking dance parties included! 💃🏻💃🏻
By day, I work in environmental communications for the Federal government. By night, I do artsy things like stand up comedy, or creative writing. I love going to concerts and the theatre, and I volunteer on a weekly basis at a local hospital.
I like to stay active with swimming, yoga, hiking, tennis, and biking. My weekly personal training session had been kicking me into better shape, too. In Florida I grew up boating; I still love it and being on any body of water, from oceans to lakes to rivers.
Books: The Corrections; Confederacy of Dunces; Le Petit Prince
Movies: Rushmore; About a Boy; Lost in Translation; Cool Runnings
TV: CBS Sunday Morning; Parks and Recreation; HBO shows
Music: I love music and have eclectic music taste! Delta Spirit; Juan Luis Guerra; and Rufus Wainwright are some favorites.
Food: my masters degree is in food studies and food policy, so food is a big, fun, and wonderful part of my life. I love trying all kinds of food and relish in different flavors and tastes from around the world and connecting with people over healthy eating!
-Family and friends
-Those serendipitous events that make life interesting
-How many awesome 90s Nickelodeon shows (Pete and Pete!) would today be deemed by parents to be too bizzare or a poor influence. Sad!
-You've reflected on the past but live in the present, and have a vision of what you want for the future.
-You're looking for a long term relationship with the right person. I'm looking for a partner with whom to experience life, love, and building a family.
