I recently moved to Boone, NC from Long Island, but have lived many other places, including South Florida, Denver, Atlanta, Cincinnati and Albany (briefly). I currently work at Appalachian State University and love the perks of being a college professor, including the opportunity to travel many interesting places! I love outdoorsy stuff and yoga, as well as reading good books, watching interesting movies and cooking tasty food. And then eating it. I love food in general.
When I travel I am rarely in the place I'm staying, because I try to do too many things in too little time. Which makes for really solid sleeping at night :) Also I am always open to recommendations for things off the beaten path; I like seeing the tourist staples, but also getting a flavor for the local area and culture.
And that's about as much as I can sum myself up in a few paragraphs... except that I also have a three-legged cat who is awesome and I would take with me everywhere if it weren't completely impractical. And also that that obviously isn't me in my profile photo (and may eventually get an angry email from the girl who runs (website hidden)) but I'm very protective of my Internet identity. Including being the last 1% of the planet not on (website hidden).
