Originally from the midwest, been here a while, and now can’t
imagine life without the SoCal climate and culture.
I can be somewhat shy at first, but can’t seem to shut up around
those I’m comfortable with. I lean towards dry wit and can find
humor in things I probably shouldn't. I ultimately try to operate
with karma in mind.
I love biking by the ocean listening to music. I have taken notes
while watching TED Talks. I watch survival shows on the chance it
will come in handy. I’ve seen much of the U.S. but need to catch up
internationally. Even though I love my career, I still fantasize
about making a living with music or design, but am aware that I
will likely peak with etsy.
What I’m doing with my life
Bringing sexy back to the world of organizational development. I
work for a school district doing my part for the kids. Generally
trying to finally find the perfect work/life balance and take
advantage of the area; biking, beaching, exploring, art opening,
bar hopping, yogging, museuming, concerting, and so on.
I’m really good at
Cursive, though I'm awful at print. Funny how that worked

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The forest through the trees
On a typical Friday night I am
Either hanging out with friends, relaxing at home, or vigilante
work I really can't get into here.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can imitate both Seth Rogan and Shakira. I'm not proud of this.
