Chi politics 

Woo I am psyched to say ! And lemme boost candidate who has a great platform amaraenyia.com

I went to the U of C from '02 to '06 where I met my now-husband; we lived in Boston while he went to grad school and came back to Chicago in '13, hopefully for good!

We live in a condo in () with a seven-month-old and a dog who loves long walks along the lakefront.

I co-own a small web development company and my husband is working on a book about the literary history of Chicago.

I also enjoy booze, bookstores, and riding the bus.
