I'm a political/legislative consultant who has spent the last two years working on campaigns and in the government offices of elected officials in San Francisco. My girlfriend and I broke up so I'm ready to start anew and move back to DC. I received my masters from George Washington University and have previously lived in the Columbia Heights and Woodley Park neighborhoods of the district (always close to the zoo!) - there were lots of things I loved about both those neighborhoods (delicious Mexican food, for example) and I look forward to discovering new ones in the future.
When not contributing toward participatory democracy I enjoy reading and traveling. Some of my favorite places to go are Paris, Tokyo, New York, Miami, and Barcelona. I love good coffee, especially good espresso. I really like dogs and cats. I travel light and enjoy to go off the beaten path. I secretly read comic books and want to live in a city where I almost never have to use my car. I love crab, especially the blue variety.
I'm a quiet guest and during the rare instances I'm actually in my room, I'm surfing the web with my headphones on. I like to cook so being able to use the kitchen wherever I'm staying would be great. I'm also a wanderer - I have the tendency of looking around the neighborhood for a place to buy a newspaper and then going down any street that looks interesting. Thanks to my handy GPS I never get too lost, but getting a little lost can be fun.
