Nomadic by Nature

I have worked remotely for over 10 years. Over that time, I’ve been “city shopping” to find the urban area I desire the most. This has taken me to many cool cities.

2021-Present

Philadelphia

Pennsylvania

Decided to rehab a Trinity-style rowhouse in the heart of Center City. Philly is weird, fun, and a great place to explore.

2019-2021

Washington

District of Columbia

What can I say - I’m enamored by an old rowhouse. The neighborhood is preserved in time from the 1800s and mixes walkability with coziness.

2018-2019

San Francisco

California

I honestly thought this was going to be my place, but the city gets in its own way more often than not (or so I experienced during my time there).

2016-2018

Seattle

Washington

Best West Coast city - you’d be hard-pressed to convince me otherwise. The rain is wildly overstated and the summers are otherworldly.

2014-2016

San Diego

California

There is a part of me that really wanted to live the Southern California lifestyle but I just couldn’t get into the relaxed nature. However, 72° and sunny doesn’t get old.

2013-2014

Providence

Rhode Island

Rhody Pride” is real. Providence is a hidden gem on the East Coast and way-too-often overlooked by its big sister, Boston.

2011-2013

Washington

District of Columbia

My first venture to a Big City™ and it clearly still has my heart as I’m on my second tour (see above).

1985-2011

Parents’ House

Connecticut

I grew up in a beautiful part of Western Connecticut, which to this day remains a very peaceful and picturesque part of America.
