I'm a semi-recent a transplant to AZ, originally from CT (90% proud/10% ashamed), but I've lived in every corner of the country. For a long time, I led a nomadic life to facilitate my passion for the outdoors and career as a climbing guide, but I've given that up in order to focus on a more intellectually and (hopefully) financially rewarding career, making use of my degree.
A couple years ago, I packed up my car, drove to Montana, and got a job as a geologist in an underground platinum mine outside of Bozeman. I absolutely loved it there! Nonetheless, after a couple years working underground, I decided I was missing out on too many things ...things like sunlight, a circadian rhythm, and warmth in general. So, I quit my job and moved to Tucson to re-enlist as a professional nerd at the UofA.
I'm now feverishly trying to finish up my masters degree and plan my next career move. When I'm not in class, working on my thesis, or trying to network, I'm probably procrastinating with friends, going out for a drink, or getting some laps in at the climbing gym or the pool. Pretty standard stuff, really.
More than most, I like to travel - occasionally for tourism, occasionally for geology, quite often just for the sake of visiting friends or family, but most especially for climbing trips. My best friends still work as climbing guides, so I usually make an effort, at least a couple times a year, to go get lost somewhere in the mountains with them. Those are the adventures I live for.
If I were to find myself in a relationship, my ideal match would be a woman who is independent and driven, someone with aspirations, whatever they may be. She is someone who wants to put a dent in the world and has the intelligence and passion to pull it off.
Oh yeah, and if you were wondering where on Earth that beautiful brown skin tone of mine comes from?? I'm Sri Lankan, German, English, and Dutch. What I'm saying is ...you probably shouldn't pass up such a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
