My self-summary
I enjoy walking around the city - hiking through Rock Creek Park, exploring new neighborhoods, seeking out new restaurants, finding cool looking houses - generally learning more about Washington, DC.

Other things I find awesome: reading, cooking, going to concerts, billiards, old houses, galleries, slide projectors, summer thunderstorms, planetariums, poems, colonnades, old-school board games, making mixes, people watching, skee-ball, Rube Goldberg machines, string quartets, Plinko, wood-burning stoves, comic books, bumper cars, spiral staircases, boardwalks, turns of phrase, thinking/reflecting, and making lists.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a paralegal in the corporate group of a law firm downtown. I recently finished graduate school to obtain a masters degree in library science.
I’m really good at
Giving directions to tourists (this happens a lot for some reason), trivia of all sorts, finding a good place to get lunch downtown, Google-fu, tech supporting my friends and family. I’m loyal and I actively listen, I will surprise you by remembering things that matter to you.

Six things I could never do without
My amazing family and friends.
Music, recorded and live.
Something to read (be it a good book, a stack of comics, news and music blogs that I follow, Twitter, the back of a cereal box, etc.)
Some kind of Internet-capable device.
Good Food.
A comfortable pair of sneakers.
On a typical Friday night I am
Solving the world's problems at happy hour with my friends and co-workers, seeing a show at the Black Cat, catching the midnight movie at E Street Cinema, or just relaxing at home after a long week with a book and/or Netflix, plotting out plans for the weekend.
