I grew up in Virginia, went to a small liberal arts college in South Carolina, and moved to Durham to pursue a Ph.D. in cognitive psychology in August 2011.
Food is one of my favorite hobbies. I like adventurous eating and trying interesting ethnic foods. I also enjoy cooking and baking.
I like exercising -- especially running -- and spending time outdoors.
I love to read, but I don't spend as much time doing it as I wish I did.
I like having thoughtful and reflective conversations, but I also enjoy being silly/goofy.
One of my favorite activities is driving with my sunroof open while singing along (loudly) to whatever's on the radio.
