I'm a history nerd, a traveler, a constant music listener, home-taught cook/baker, SF Bay Area native turned DC transplant, a lover of the backroads, and a hard-nosed journalist who is always ready for a challenge. Like most people in DC, I find it easy to get swept away in my work, but it's time to balance that with other facets of life.
Honestly, I'm a journalist who is terrible at keeping a journal, a bibliophile trying to learn how to love eReaders (they're good for commuting...I'll give them that), and a worst-case scenario planner whose food storage mostly contains bottled water and Dr. Pepper. The essentials, really.
I'm loyal, driven and understanding. I love hearing people's stories and finding what has shaped them into who they are now.
Also, I'm a football and basketball girl. I love the San Francisco 49ers, Utah Jazz, and Cleveland Cavaliers. No DC teams yet, as I've seen how they can break your heart.
