I love learning! Whether its picking up a book and discovering something new or taking formal lessons, I'm a big believer in keeping sharp. I moved to Northern Virginia from Boston in 2007 and worked hard to not pick up the Massachusetts accent along the way. Speaking of which, only a handful of actors in Hollywood can pull one off, it usually takes a native to do a decent job. Think Mark Wahlberg in "Ted" or Matt Damon in "The Departed."
I was working on Maryland's evening MBA program for a couple years and graduated in May. It's still such an amazing feeling to be done with the work/school lifestyle! I've got a lot more free time on my hands so I'm enjoying my nights and weekends.
Some things I like doing include traveling, spending time with family and friends, cooking, going to local sports games, working on small home repair projects, and participating in community service efforts. Outdoor seasonal activities are the best: relaxing near the ocean or pool in the summer and hitting the ski trails in the winter.
