Idealistic, outgoing, affectionate, independent, honest, and communicative are words that define me. I am not someone who likes to sit back and wait for life to happen. I try to challenge myself in some small way every single day. I am a extrovert who often strikes up conversations with strangers. I like spicy food that makes my eyes water, and I'm a huge fan of Belgian beer. I am more artistic than athletic-- although I enjoy watching any heated sports rivalry. I do High Intensity Interval Training 3-4x a week and not just for my body.
In my free time I can be found eating sushi, updating my Netflix queue, trying new restaurants, and strolling through both the city and country. I'm a bit of a movie buff, and my taste in film varies from big box office action (in 3D of course) to the independent. I recycle almost everything possible. I'm always reading a book, and my favorite is the Alchemist. I served on a federal jury two years ago and it was eye-opening. It was like living in a Law & Order episode. One of my favorite experiences is seeing live music, especially at smaller venues.
