Hello! I'm Andrea. I am incredibly social and I thrive on witty banter. I'm a transplant from Cali, and I absolutely love Chicago- especially the snow. I enjoy exploring the city and discovering all of the nooks and crannies. I am a bit of a language nerd (who doesn't love to say "dangling participle"!?) and I'm always excited to learn new words. I like to be silly and frequently laugh til I cry. I enjoy nothing more than sitting around with friends eating food we just cooked and talking til the wee hours of the night. Except maybe going out dancing. I like to watch football and scream at the TV, but I don't really follow one particular team. Though I am completely a city person, I have fuzzy dreams of yards and space and trees. In an effort to merge the two worlds, I do things like grow herbs and plan picnics. I think having an intellectual debate is sexy. Travel is an essential part of an Andrea-diet, and I never seem to get enough- all the best stories are from time spent traveling!
