I'm originally from the Detroit area, but I've been living in the DC area for over 4 years and love it here. I recently moved to the suburbs, and have been enjoying the different offerings outside the beltway (great ethnic food, green space, and larger living space). I'm a federal employee (like many of us here in the DC area) working in energy, but my passion is the environment. I'm also a pottery student, avid reader, yogi, and amateur chef in my free-time. My fiance is German and our roommate is Filipino, so we are all internationally minded people who love to meet people from new places, and travel ourselves.
