I'm originally a NorCal girl and after 9 years away, I'm happy to be back home. I love to play tennis and scrabble, watch sports (especially hockey thanks to my Russian parents), cook, and travel to new places whenever I have the chance. I have a bit of a tv obsession and have been known to talk about my favorite characters as if they are my friends. I once decided to pack up and move across the country to be a kid's ski instructor with about a month's notice, which is one of the more spontaneous things I've done! I can be quite sarcastic, but don't worry, if I make fun of you it means I like you. I think that about sums it up for now!
