I'm a talkative, sarcastic, outgoing, introvert (seemingly paradoxical but if you meet me you'll see what I mean). Other defining traits would be: confidence, charisma, intelligence & independence. I'm pretty driven and ambitious and when I decide to pursue something I'm extremely dedicated. Some random things: My favorite day of the year is the first snow. I can't live without coffee (and love finding great little coffee shops in new cities). I love running (favorite loops = Charles River and Central Park). I make wishes at 11:11 and I'm convinced they work. I like to cook and frequently will watch the food network and then make whatever was just on. To balance that out I started racing - completed half marathon in Philly and just ran NYC half a few months ago. I have a list of places I want to visit - just got back from an awesome trip to Istanbul - and Barcelona or Italy are next.
