Life is good - I've gotten to travel far and live in fantastic places, and I am lucky to have a great family and friends. I'm originally from Moldova, but have spent much of my time running around Latin America. Being somewhat of a gypsy for nearly a decade was great, and although I still get the travel bug quite often, I'm happy to call DC my home. I'm lucky to live in a city with an international buzz, and with people from all over the world. I love to see those around me smile, and although I'm quite independent, I can't be happier when I am with friends and great company. I admire driven/intelligent people with a great sense of humor, a touch of sarcasm, and a kind heart.
