I like to have fun and I love to laugh - at jokes I hear for the first time, or at really bad jokes I'm telling for the 20th. I grew up in St. Louis, lived in Chicago and D.C. and returned to St. Louis for grad school before moving up to Minneapolis for work a few years ago. I like the culture of the Twin Cities but hate the October-March forecasts. From work to friends, I am happiest when I am excited and challenged, and at the top of my list right now is to find someone who is independent and hardworking, and who I can't wait to tell about my day. Every day.
