Been in DC for almost two and a half years years now and enjoying my job as a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. Also doing my PhD on the side.
I'm a pretty laid back person and have a sarcastic sense of humor.
I love traveling and have lived in Egypt, Morocco, and Tunisia. I would really like to go to Antarctica, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Thailand, Iceland, and Turkey. Forthcoming travel: Singapore, Japan, China, Thailand, New Zealand, and Australia.
I enjoy writing, hiking, cycling (I used to race in undergrad), reading, and hanging with friends. Always down for trying a new beer, especially an IPA.
TV is definitely my guilty please. My favorite shows currently on are The Knick, Cosmos, Archer, the Americans, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, South Park, Community, Boardwalk Empire, Broad City, Hell on Wheels, and the Real World/the Challenge.
I'm a big sports fan so if you enjoy going to a game (football, basketball, baseball, or hockey) we'll get along.
Checking out new restaurants are fun and some of my favorite types of ethnic foods are Indian, Afghan, Ethiopian, and Texas BBQ.
