I consider myself to be a very passionate and caring person. I am passionate about my work (urban education reform) and my hobbies (French, swimming, sports, reading, good food and good wine). I left a little piece of me in Paris that is always calling me back. Other loves, in no particular order: nutella and banana crepes, summer thunderstorms, family, Chapel Hill, almost any place near water, friends, Philly, cute kids, fall, eating outside, crosswords, people who can teach me something new. Dislikes, in no particular order: people who use their outdoor voices inside, apathy, Dook, jdate, Starbucks coffee (it's bitter!), people who walk around looking angry at the world.
