Being a foreigner is awesome
Somewhat educated, somewhat traveled, bored at work, and very laid back. I grew up in New York, but have lived in New Orleans and Northern Ireland. I am currently residing in DC which has been homebase for the last nine years.
I work as a project manager for a translations company. I'm not a translator unfortunately and can only speak Spanish (terribly).
I have spent various pieces of the last several years in Derry, Northern Ireland. I studied there a while back, and like to chill there when the God of Telecommuting alloweth. I find that Derrymen's diets, values, lifestyles, and bad habits are well tuned to mine.
I love travel, music, movies, video games, National Geographic, books when attention span permits and walking everywhere.
I am a New York Red Sox fan (3rd generation, dues long since paid) I will be a Red Sox fan from birth to death.
I used to have something about hating work here, but I actually like my job for the most part. I'm working on getting a new philosophy.

I like showing people around my city, whichever it might be at the time. If at all possible, I like to give the grand tour to people staying on my couch.
