East Coast native who found a home in the Midwest and is having a hard time leaving. I'm a proud alum of the University of Michigan. If football is our religion, however, I'm afraid you'll have to consider me an atheist. I suffer from chronic wanderlust, and have a goal of celebrating my birthday in a different country every year. I spend a good part of my days explaining synergies using PowerPoint slides (guilty, consultant). It pays the bills for now. Off the clock, I tinker on vintage bikes, climb rocks, and make meals that are far too elaborate for my kitchen.
