I'm from the Midwest originally, but lived in Austin before coming to D.C. I like biking, good conversation, learning about things I know nothing about, watching the pandas at the Zoo, Trader Joes, indie rock, Mad Men, theater, Guinness, PBS, and The Onion. I don't like places too loud to hear yourself scream, cell phones, the Metro, and reality shows.
My favorite trip ever was a weeklong bike trek through the west of Ireland with my younger brother (biking 50 miles is much more fun after a couple of pints).
Favorite films: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, The Breakfast Club, Reds, Waking Life, and Baraka.
Favorite food: still searching, though the Nutella-banana crepes I had in Paris two years ago would be up there.
