My self-summary
I grew up in suburbs of New York, was a volunteer firefighter, went to undergrad in a small college in Amish County PA, skied professionally, lived in Israel, and counting down the days until my trip to Iceland in the fall.

Otherwise, I'm cursing the inevitable red line delays, going skiing Saturday, playing softball on Wednesday, and getting my bike ready for the commute for Monday.
What I’m doing with my life
Being a contractor (like seemingly most of the people I know), but it's exciting, interesting, and the people I work with are amazing. Finally grad school is paying off!

I really want to get out and do some skiing this winter, get into hiking and rock climbing this summer, and just generally get outside (my office is in a windowless room, ugh). Plus I have an apartment with a balcony AND a grill now, PLUS deck furniture. It has completely ruined me, all of my future apartments have to have a balcony now, its that good.
I’m really good at
Looking into my refrigerator and not knowing what to cook for dinner, skiing, cooking breakfast, and dragging my bike down two flights of stairs to get to work. Also saying "that's what she/he said" at the perfect time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm slowly making my way through Game of Thrones, but its tough reading it after seeing the show and knowing what happens. I mean really Ned Stark, why would you tell Cersei your plans?! But I go back and forth between that and reading a few books.

And I'm trying to think of a list of movies and music that I like but my interests are so broad. So for movies I like everything except horror and music I like everything except for country.

I'm just binged through Man Seeking Woman, I don't know how they were able to so accurately depict my life, but its really scary. Otherwise, Game of Thrones, Archer, The West Wing, and Parks and Rec, Seinfeld, Boardwalk Empire, Homeland, Orange is the New Black, you know stuff like that. Heres an unpopular opinion, especially in DC, I actually dont like House of Cards.
The six things I could never do without
Running, good food, friends, reading, calling up my brother and seeing what ridiculous antics his landlord/employer Maurice is up to this week, and sushi (seriously, if I lived in Japan I would be eating sushi and drinking sake all the time).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How do I get a job that will let me travel around the world or live in another country? Where should I go skiing next season? And (back when I was applying for jobs) if I uploaded a resume into the system why do I still have to write in all the information into another form?
On a typical Friday night I am
Not in class anymore! I was taking a certificate at Georgetown and that is Friday nights and Saturday all day. But now I have my weekends free and it feels oh so good.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Every time I buy peaches I get "Peaches" by Presidents of the United States stuck in my head, every time without fail.
You should message me if
If you want to say hello, I've got some good stories like how I thought a 400 pound man was having a heart attack and that I fulfilled the firefighter sterotype of actually saving a cat in a tree. Also if you want to go to Eastern Market one weekend, it's pretty awesome, plus there's a doughnut truck. Plus if you have a dog, dogs are awesome, I really want a dog.
