I am a young-ish national security professional in the Washington, D.C. area with a passion for all things international relations and foreign policy. In my free time, outside of starting this new adventure in blogging, I enjoy hanging out with my friends, family, and feline fluffy friend, traveling when travel is safe, playing soccer, listening to podcasts, and taking long walks around my neighborhood.
