I'm originally from Harrisburg, PA, but I am loving my new home in Brighton, MA thus far, which is great considering I'll be here completing my studies for a few years! The dual-degree Archival Management Program (History/Library Science) keeps me pretty busy, but in my free time I love to watch How I Met Your Mother, visit record stores, watch movies, and drink coffee.
