Born and raised in Washington DC and I never stop taking advantage of what there is to offer here. I enjoy going to museums and modern art. I love Gustav Klimt and movies from the 1950's. I like to hang out with my friends and family and try new foods (..for a vegetarian). My other passions include (in no particular order) physics for lay people (think basic explanations of string theory via the Discovery Channel)...goat cheese, hiking, human anatomy and physiology, poetry, football (American mostly), hockey, and mostly, traveling whenever possible.
