I am intellectually curious about virtually everything (particularly politics and history), but I am a total goofball. I do cross fit, play tennis, root for the New York Giants (although I will consider associating with a Bears fan), and have performed in a jazz band, a parody musical, and an improv group. I like sharing stories about my travels around the world. I have watched every episode of 30 Rock, love the Daily Show, and I make sure to read the New York Times Week in Review and Book Review. I am a passionate and well-informed Democrat and Obama supporter, but will listen to you if you disagree, even as I prove you wrong :).
