My self-summary
Some fun facts, just to keep it interesting:
I hold three passports but they all list the same name so I'm not
qualified to be Jason Bourne. I have crossed state and international lines on foot, as well as the equator and prime meridian. I think I have done cartwheels in every office I've worked in at one point or another. I have weird prophetic dreams or premonitions sometimes, most recently, I dreamed that a friend from work told me that the receptionist at work was pregnant and a week later I found out that she actually was.
What I’m doing with my life
I lived in the DC area for a while and now I'm back in the Bay!

I work on Medicare policy issues and I love that the work I do gets tangible outcomes.

On the more personal level, I strive for a semi-constant level of wit but my sarcasm doesn't always make it to that level. I always try to show kindness to others and really appreciate kindness in friends, coworkers and significant others. A thoughtful action or help when I'm stressed means so much more to me than an expensive gift.
I’m really good at
Random trivia, crepe making, derailing productivity in work meetings.
The first things people usually notice about me
I laugh a lot. And loudly.

I have a lot of orange clothing and accessories despite not being a graduate of Princeton, nor the Universities or Tennessee or Texas.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love Nick Hornby, David Sedaris and romantic comedies, both in film and book form.

Some current favorites on TV include: How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family and of course, I usually end my weeknights with Jon and Stephen.
I love The West Wing and The Gilmore Girls for the same reason- intelligent, quick, witty dialogue.

I don't claim that this is an exhaustive list nor am I suggesting that all of these are high caliber films, just things I like.
Most of John Hughes and Kevin Smith's movies
Blood Diamond
The Constant Gardener
Love Actually
Four Weddings and a Funeral
Van Wilder
Good Morning Vietnam
Forrest Gump

I have gone well out of my way to see Jump, Little Children and Weezer live- the only two bands I have seen perform more than once. Otherwise I enjoy listening to Green Day, Ben Folds, Less Than Jake, Save Ferris. I guess my musical tastes are mostly in the alt rock and ska veins and I'm a total sucker for bands with a cello and/or a horn section. I miss the old 104.9 which became "La Romantica, Mexican love ballads" sometime while I was in college, briefly reemerged at 92.3 FM and sadly, that has now become what I think are Mandarin Chinese love songs.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Health care policy
Taking care of friends/family
Public health
Fun activities
Medicare data
Civil political discourse
On a typical Friday night I am
Out to happy hour, late night drinks or watching a movie with friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I regularly manage to misunderstand song lyrics and then loudly sing the wrong words along with the radio.
You should message me if
Any of the above made you laugh/smile.
