I'd probably describe myself as an adventurous nerd. I went to law school and practiced corporate law for a while in Chicago and Washington DC. Lately I'm trying out a new career path that leaves more time for friends and a life outside of work.
One of my real passions is international travel. I've been to 38 countries and I have a goal to make it to a new country every year.
I also like to get out and about here in DC. There's always something to do, museums, concerts, festivals and great sporting events. Mostly I like big and small adventures and I'm generally up for anything new (this year I've checked out UFC fighting, skydiving, demolition derby and 3 different amusement parks... I love rollercoasters).
All that said, I also appreciate down time and quiet nights at home. I love to read fluffy fiction books. I'm also a pretty decent baker.
I'm really close to my family and wish I could spend more time with my nieces and nephews, but for now they live in Utah. I make it home to Utah a lot to visit them. I've lived away for 8 years but it's still home.
