I am enthusiastic, young, urban professional residing in Washington, DC. I work in international development in the environment sector and travel frequently to the Middle East. I stay in hotels for long stretches of time for work, so when I am traveling I really prefer to stay somewhere more comfy and that has a kitchen, as I really enjoy cooking when I have the time.
I love biking, karaoke, making chocolate chip cookies, Halloween, live music, and long dinners with friends.
I'm not a particularly aggressive traveler,...meaning that I love to see a few sights, but I also like to relax, wake-up a bit later, have long meals, even if that means I miss a highlight or two. While I love traveling and seeing new places, I really prefer to live in foreign places or stay long enough to meet and/or know some good people, as I've found that is what I always enjoy most about any place I go, no matter how magnificent the sights.
