I am a driven, passionate, and goals-oriented person, but I also try to find the joy and fun in any given situation without taking myself too seriously. I was raised in Arizona (Go Cards!), but now live and work in Washington D.C. I still enjoy exploring the area and checking out local events, shows, restaurants, and bars. I love to travel and have visited China, Cambodia, Brazil, Argentina, Israel and various cities across the United States over the past five years. I enjoy reading, golfing, working out, cooking, attending live music, going out/socializing, and spending time with friends and family. Finally, I have family living in Maryland and Virginia and spending time with them is important to me.
