My self-summary
I just hit my 10 year mark of living in DC, though I left the city for four years to live and work in Europe after the first six years. I've been back in the city for four year years now, experiencing what I call DC Version 2.0. The city has changed a lot since I first moved here, so I am trying to appreciate all the new things DC has to offer -- new restaurants, bars, neighborhoods, etc. I guess I have changed, too...

I am originally from Boston (no accent), and have always lived in cities (Philly, DC, Prague). I don’t have a car (but have a license), and prefer it that way. Driving and parking in this city stresses me out. I am a big fan of bike share.

While I love urban living, I also like to get out of the city and do outdoorsy activities. Unfortunately, I don’t think I have explored the surrounding DC area enough (perhaps because I don’t have a car?) So, going on hikes, bike rides, ski trips, camping, winery tours etc. are all things I would like to make more a part of my DC life. As a New England gal, I love to be near the water -- the salty ocean air, fresh seafood and going to the beach.

I like to stay active – for the mind and the body. I do a lot of yoga and like to run. I try to sign up for a few road races and at least one half marathon every year. I just ran the DC half marathon this past weekend, though I really didn't have much time to train.

I have a bad case of wanderlust and am always looking to plan my next adventure. I’ve done most of my traveling around Europe (France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Czech Republic, Hungary, Portugal, Croatia), but I have also been to Russia, Georgia, Ukraine, Cambodia, Vietnam, India, Jordan and Turkey. The past year has been filled with lots of travel for both work and pleasure to Singapore, Australia, Israel, Guatemala, southern Spain, Paris and London! Recently, I have also been doing a bunch of domestic travel for work: Nashville, Philly...and Sheboygan!

I really enjoy food and will try pretty much anything once. However, I have been finding myself to be more and more of a vegetarian (+ seafood, + bacon, + a burger every now and then... so, not a very strict one.) I enjoy cooking, and am fairly good at it - I just don’t do it enough.

I don't really follow professional sports, but I am always up for going to a game (hockey, basketball, baseball). I wouldn't want watching sports (or a lot of tv) to be a huge part of relationship, though I do find myself binging on a Netflix from time to time.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in global security/political risk. I really enjoy my work, but sometimes world events can really be a downer, so it's important to have a good sense of humor. I try to surround myself with fun and upbeat things and people when I am not in the office.

I've been traveling a bunch lately, both for work and fun, so I haven't been in town a lot lately, but I am hoping my travel will slow down a little bit soon. Or that I find a travel companion who is up for joining me!
