I'm originally from Los Angeles but now live in Belmont, MA (near Boston) where I'm in grad school. I worked as a librarian in public libraries in Los Angeles for about 8 years before spending a year in the Netherlands and then winding up on the East Coast (4 years in Syracuse, NY prior to moving to Boston). I'm friendly and tend to do quiet activities (read, yoga, swim). I really enjoy day trips where I explore the local area and see what surprises and delights me along the way. I feel that every place offers at least one diamond in the rough.
