Outside Dinte

Fun fact people wouldn’t know about me: I’m a huge exotic car nerd. I’ve had the privilege of driving laps with 2 Ferraris and a Lamborghini and I’m becoming a big fan of Cars and Coffee events in the DC area.

Had to renew my passport before going to: Haiti. I went there a year after the 2010 earthquake with a disaster response organization with whom I’ve developed a deep relationship. It was amazing to see the resiliency of the people there.

Food Trucks or Take Out? Take out. I’m not a very adventurous person. I only try new things when I go to expensive restaurants because my philosophy is – if it’s not good there, it’s not going to be good anywhere.
