Once upon a time, I lived through the brutal winters of Rochester, NY. The summers were amazing though, and that's where I fell in love with hiking, biking, and the great outdoors. Despite that, I'm a city person and enjoy being in areas where there's fantastic restaurants, performing arts, educational experiences, and lively sports.
On a day-to-day basis, I like to spend time being with friends and family, volunteering, exercising, exploring the city, learning about new things, and having good conversations. The travel bug caught me a few years back, so I do try to get out of town at least once a month to shake things up, if only for a day or two.
I currently work for the non-profit Code for America, hoping to make city and state government more in touch with people via technology.
