I was born and raised in the D.C. area. I'm passionate about traveling, cycling, and craft beer. I'm also interested in cities, smart growth, econ, finance, and geopolitics. I'm an extrovert who loves being surrounded by and meeting new people. I love taking advantage of all that D.C. has to offer, and am excited to share my decade's worth of knowledge from living here to fellow travelers. I'm a fairly open person and am not very possessive which means that what is mine is essentially yours while you are under my roof. I'm a cycle enthusiast (road, mountain, commute, advocacy, etc.) and ride to and from work everyday. I consider myself to be kind, generous, and fun-loving. I'm health conscious and prefer to spend my time outdoors doing fun activities to being indoors and/or watching TV. Like many others around here, I work for the federal government.
