My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a first generation Schwäbisch-American. I don't like labels, but that should give you something fun to look up ... and hopefully some insight into my sense of humor. It also explains my affinity for spätzle and maultaschen. Yes ... I do have a spätzle press. If you're nice, I might make you some. Ok ... I don't like summaries. Read below if you want more info.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Learning languages (specifically focusing on Persian and German at the moment), staying very active in my community, and working as a project manager. At work, I'm most interested in the process of change and how individuals can successfully navigate this inevitable certainty of life. At home, I'm hoping to get my boat out on the river this summer. In my free time I enjoy exploring, whether another country, another city, nearby bodies of water, or even new things along my familiar haunts. Of course, there is no rush, and I'm just as happy to find my sanctuaries wherever I may be located. Which brings me to one last area of focus: searching for balance. I'm working to find a balance that allows me to fully appreciate all of the incredible experiences that life has to offer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
UPDATE: Paddleboarding is my newest hobby. Feel free to join me whether it's in the calm waters of a nearby lake, or catching some waves in the ocean or a river.

I also enjoy hiking, biking, swimming, running, cooking, languages, and enjoying sunrises and sunsets. I am very good at locating high quality food and beer. Oh ... and I really like yoga. I also enjoy singing and dancing ... I'll let you decide whether you believe I am good at those activities or not. At a minimum, I'm enthusiastic. Last, but not least, I enjoy discussing big ideas. The world won't change without them!

Food: I love food! Korean barbeque, Sushi, Middle Eastern, Indian, Latin American, Ethiopian, French, German, Italian, Belgian ... really ... I can't think of anything I don't like or wouldn't try. I will admit that I generally don't eat too much fried food ... but everything is okay once in a while. Make sure you can pair it with a beer.

Radio: I'm an NPR junkie. I love to start my mornings with a good cup of coffee and the Writer's Almanac.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm pretty flexible. Things I prefer to have: clean water, food, a clean living space, and family, friends and community. I also need natural spaces to explore, preferably near mountains, lakes, rivers, and oceans.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How incredibly beautiful, yet short life can be. How most of the problems we perceive are just that ... perceptions. How to continue the journey towards living my life as authentically as possible.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Spending time with friends, relaxing, or starting a weekend adventure. I may be listening to live music, sharing a meal with friends, biking or walking around the city, taking pictures of whatever I find interesting, hanging out at the marina, reading a book, watching a movie, or going to bed early.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love pedicures.
