I am a morning person with lots of energy. I like to walk, go hiking, play softball, canoe, go boating, and anything else outdoors. I really appreciate good food and wine, and I like trying out new restaurants. I like going to hear local live music, especially Cary Hudson. I'd rather watch a movie at home than at the movies. I like sci-fi movies, Bollywood films, and period pieces. I like to read fiction and non-fiction, particularly biographies of political figures (especially Jimmy Carter). I love my dogs. I have two pugs named Carter and Presley (for Jimmy and Elvis) who I like to take walking. After a few years of working as a paralegal, I decided to go to law school. I'm in my first year, and I'm enjoying it a lot. Travel is a priority--I've lived in Florence and London and I've been to several other countries, but I have a long list of other places I want to visit in the future. I'm a loyal friend, a good listener, an enthusiastic (if not overly skilled) dancer, and an adventurous cook.
