I was a lifetime New York resident until June when I moved to Somerville for a job as a campus planner at a local university (aka buildings and long-term campus development). I like to make people laugh and I will make fun of anyone, especially myself. I don't put too much stock in what other people think of me and am therefore able to embrace my quirks. I'm polite to strangers, and like to give people the benefit of the doubt. I'm practical and logical and some may even say prodigal (not to be confused with proctological). Outside of the office, I can be found riding the T for about 90 minutes daily, cooking, eating, reading, jogging, watching tv, painting, drinking, listening [to music], hiking, chit chatting, and you guessed it, sleeping.
