I'm from Philadelphia, US and have lived in Berlin for about 13 years. I came here to do the research and writing for my Ph.D. on German history (Nazis - happy to talk more about that if we meet face-to-face). I fell in love with the city and decided to stay. I now head a small department of project managers at a software company. My interests include travel, cooking and eating, fitness, film, books, tv, and going out to dinner, bars, sometimes clubs, and museums with the great friends I have here. I also take care of my 4-year old godson a lot - and love him much. I've traveled all over, but my favorite destinations are probably Spain, Japan, and France, which also have my favorite foods (although I love Italian). I'm friendly, but a little shy, have a sarcastic sense of humor, intelligent, and curious to explore new things. Let me know if you have any questions about me. I'm happy to answer!
