I am spontaneous, quick-witted, irreverent, and creative with a dry sense of humor but that is around people who know me. At first I am quiet, cautious, and can be intense. I am also honest, loyal to my friends, intelligent, and exceptionally nice, but I've been told that I have an edge. My interests include music, indie/art house films, current events, tennis, cooking, hiking, comedy clubs, ethnic restaurants, and art museums and I am an avid fan of The Daily Show and NPR. I’m proud that I completed a 4 day/330 mile bicycle ride to raise money for Food and Friends and the Whitman Walker Clinic in DC. I enjoy my work developing software used for medical and forensic DNA analysis.
