I am an urban planner, who studied, lived, and worked in New York City for 7 years. I basically spent most of my adult life there. I spent the last 2 years in Montreal doing my masters, where my French got a lot better. I'm in DC now, working for a non-profit that helps plan bus and bicycle networks in cities across the world, so I get to travel a good bit. I've been fascinated by cites since I was little, and I'm also interested in politics.
Let's see, I ride my bike most everywhere in DC, and I have a small garden in my backyard, where I grow basil, cherry tomatoes, squash, peppers, and various spices. I love to eat all sorts of food and have been known to consume large quantities of cookies.
My girlfriend, Emily, is very outdoorsy. She just hiked the John Muir trail and also plays the violin. She also rides her bike most places and can tell you the names of a zillion kinds of tree.
