Grew up in Boston but moved to DC about a year ago after graduate school. Have really enjoyed DC so far - seeing the cherry blossoms, training for my first triathlon and finding new places to explore - be it eating out, hiking or taking a weekend trip. Half Finnish/half Jewish (hence the blond hair). I've lived in the US and abroad and love adventure, but also think that an ideal Friday night can be at home grilling and enjoying a beer with friends. Gravitate towards water. I teach swimming after work, which is a good way to stay grounded and have fun splashing around after "real" work.
