I just moved here from New York City -- so I essentially traded one cold winter for another. I keep expecting DC to be a tropical paradise and I'm not quite sure why! I do economic research for a living. This passion has brought me to jobs of all shapes and sizes, from studying thematic issues at a large financial firm to helping shape public policy throughout government. I tend to be lighthearted and infuse even the busiest of days with a joke and a smile. And truthfully, it's hard for me to go a day without mentioning some movie/tv show/musical/play/bo ok I'm obsessed with at the moment. These professions of obsession and love virtually almost always lead back to Walter White. I'm also deeply devoted to helping others -- thus my journey back from the streets of NY to DC -- and incredibly close with my family.
