Before coming to DC, I did a brief stint in Austin where I picked up my master’s, but more importantly, an appreciation for live music, brisket, and all things weird.
I spent the first 21 years of my life in North Carolina and – even with its backwards politics –absolutely loved growing up there. I’m a die-hard Carolina fan, despite completing my undergrad at certain school 8 miles down the road (when your dad names you after Michael Jordan, some things don’t change).
I can talk your ear off about how much I hate DC's height limit.
books: generally find myself reading non-fiction, and while its not a book – the new yorker.
food: i'll try anything at least once and love all sorts of ethnic food (mexican, thai, indian, ethiopian). being from the south, however, i'll always default to carolina bbq.
shows: the wire, friday night lights, mad men, modern family, true detective, the west wing, game of thrones
coffee (cold when its hot, hot when its not)
discovering new music
career (steel and concrete, really)
