I moved back to LA last year for my second time. I grew up outside Baltimore, but have lived in New Orleans (Tulane), LA, Chicago (business school), Napa Valley, East Bay, Dallas, and Barcelona.
I have family on the east coast (Baltimore and Atlanta) -- parents, two older sisters, four nieces and a nephew. I have lived a lot of places (but in LA to stay), so my friends are scattered all over the place. I have a really diverse group of friends, which I think has helped broaden my perspective. I know it sounds cliché, but I believe you can learn from anyone, and probably the most from people who are least similar to you.
I have been lucky to have traveled a lot in my life and it's still one of my favorite things to do. I honestly spend a lot of time working right now. I am very committed to my career, but I know that ultimately is not going to be enough to make me happy. I have a great group of friends, but I'm looking for the right person to bring that other dimension into my life. I've been in good relationships in the past and know how much of a game changer that can be.
