I am very passionate about the work I do. I also love to get out of the house and into nature.
I am very open and people tend to feel comfortable around me--my friends are always amazed at my ability to get perfect strangers to open up to me.
I am both nerdy and a creative soul. Finding the balance between those two sides of my personality is a lot of fun!
I love to travel. My research has allowed me to live in Germany, Amsterdam, and Brazil.
Because of the type of work I do, I tend to have a lot of hands-on hobbies. I spent the last year learning how to rebuild my old VW bug--everything from the engine to sewing the interior.
Learning something new, photography, building something from scratch, explaining extremely inappropriate topics in extremely inappropriate situations (often part of my job!), working with someone going through a difficult experience.
Movies: Promised Land, The Goonies, The Celluloid Closet, The Princess Bride, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Real Genius
Music: Jack Johnson, Damien Jurado, and much much more...
The time I spend outdoors
Traveling...cross country or abroad
Chocolate chip cookie dough and fried chicken (judge all you want)
Projects where I get to tinker all day
