I'm originally from Minnesota, but love being in the city, a little over 5 years now. I came to the city for grad school in Art History and decided to stay. I work hard and have a fairly sarcastic sense of humor, which helps me deal with the general craziness at work. In my free time I'm heading out for a run in the park, baking something chocolatey and delicious, hanging out with friends, or just relaxing with a book.
I love exploring the city and finding great new bars, restaurants, stores, parks, but also enjoy getting out of the city and visiting friends around the country. Being from the Midwest I do miss 'the great outdoors', though, and also driving, which I only do about 5 or 6 times a year now. Sigh. I love going abroad as well, although it's been a few years. I lived in Germany for a year and other favorite trips include Brughes and Prague. I'm pretty much up for going anywhere, especially if there's great art to be found.
