Smithsonian Institution
Hey, I'm Maria Nicole!
Washington, District of Columbia, United States · Member since July 2012

Late 20s graduate of University of Pittsburgh and Pratt Institute. NY transplant to Washington DC where I work at the Smithsonian. I grew up in NY, and my family is from Jamaica.

I'm a Christian, only child, potential future cat lady, reader of historical fiction and non-fiction, jogger, pseudo-foodie (OK, I'm just greedy), wannabe globetrotter, casual conversant, dancer, and thinker.

I am tidy and respectful of other people's space and property. When traveling for personal reasons, I prefer boutique hotels, bed and breakfasts, independently owned and personal spaces to large hotels/resorts.

Currently reading: Patricia Powell's "The Pagoda" and recently read Isabel Allende's "Ines of my Soul"
On heavy rotation: Flo rida "Good Feeling," Damian Marley "Move," and Jay Z & Alicia Keys "Empire State of Mind"
Favorite meal: Brunch
Last prepared: Rice and beans and chorizo
In the fridge right now: Romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, strawberries, blueberries, sharp cheddar cheese and an assortment of condiments
Upcoming trip: Nassau Bahamas in August 2012
When not in the house, find me: At a museum, church or the gym
Current life goal: Train for and compete in a sprint triathlon
Philosophy: Everything and everyone is God's. Treat God's stuff with care.
