Hello! I’m Doug. I’ve lived in the Washington DC area now for about 5 years now, and I have been active in the community on many levels: as a father of 2 great kids, a contractor in the international development space, an aspiring artist, and as a lover of the city in general. I want to post on my experiences living and working in DC.

Also- why the name of the site? Well, it’s a long story, but it goes back to my college days in football. I would say – “Ya gotta rush to make the goal!” Rush being to put the effort in, and to make a statement. Let’s Rush, DC!
