I live with my family in Baltimore and loves music, food, and travel. I play clarinet in the Hopkins Symphony Orchestra. My husband and I love to cook and to explore the great restaurants in Baltimore and DC. I also love to travel. I have been to Antarctica, Greenland, and several places in between. When they are a little older, my husband Sean and I look forward to traveling with our kids (Tierney and Sebastian), to see the US National Parks, Europe, Africa, and the Polar Regions.
