I love traveling and outdoor adventures and city wandering. Jumping into cold ocean water makes my day. I have a strong sense of direction, which I'd love to more often use to navigate hiking trails, but is mostly valuable at subway station exits.
Certainly a bit nerdy, plus a dry, goofy sense of humor. I’m not shy, but some things make me bashful, like writing descriptions of myself for strangers to read. I’m half Brit and embrace my inheritance of wit, scones, and politeness.
Before school, I worked here in local politics – campaigns, political consulting, getting advocacy groups get in the news. It made the city feel small, and spun me towards lawyering.

Any food, especially spicy or salty. Mostly home cooking. I love a good cross-city adventure for food.
I used to be paid to be a news junkie, and am still reforming the habit; I still think a lot about civic participation, local elections, city council legislation.
