I've loved politics since I was a kid. I am always trying to better understand the world, even in my spare time, by geeking out on history, economics, and other behavioral sciences. When I'm not at the gym, hanging out at a dog park, or checking out new restaurants, I'm listening to podcasts, watching football/basketball, and trying to stay relevant on movies, TV, and pop culture, all usually while playing with data from the most recent dataset I found. However, the most important thing in my life are my pups, Lincoln and Ulysses (Uly). They are my shadows and go almost everywhere with me.
