My name is Mel Jones. I'm originally from Lexington, KY; grew up some in Columbia, SC; completed my undergrad in DC; and am most recently from Blacksburg, VA. I went to Virginia Tech for my graduate degree and now I am a research associate at the Virginia Center for Housing Research at Virginia Tech. I also like to read, garden, cook, travel, and paint. I travel mostly with my husband, Patrick O'Brien. In general, we both have a passion for exploring new places and meeting new people (although, I must say, I'm the adventurous ambassador-- he likes to lay back and enjoy the vacation). Pat's originally from Lexington, KY too; grew up some in Alexandria, VA; did his undergrad in Harrisonburg, VA; then made his way to Virginia Tech for grad school. He works for the Virginia Tech Office of Economic Development. I met him while completing my Masters. He prefers reading, TVing, and drinking to his job (or so he says). Nonetheless!, he's quite the intellectual and I think he secretly likes to work. So, I hope this little narrative gives you an idea of what we're like...or at least what I'm like. Cheers, Mel Jones
