Originally from Brooklyn, I've been in AZ since August 2006. I moved here for grad school but stayed because I really dislike winter and have made some great friends (that's not to say I'm not open to the possibility of moving somewhere else, provided the location has a mild to nonexistent winter). I do contracted work as a speech-language pathologist in a private practice. As far as me, I am independent, nurturing, sarcastic, blunt, and I try to live by the golden rule. My idea of a great night varies from a night in front of the tv (or computer screen) to staying out all night.
