I would describe myself as outgoing and laid back, but also opinionated and professionally driven. (...Like motivated, not chauffeured.) I appreciate sarcasm and puns. Even bad ones. (See above.) I'm an active person. With a few big exceptions, I'd rather play sports than watch them, but I do both regularly and played water polo through college. Biking along the PCH is a favorite weekend activity, and I'm always up for checking out a national or state park. We don't always have to go out, though, I'm also a fan of the wine and movie night in or just hitting a local bar.
As for interests, I like to cook, but I live by myself so it's possible I'm not very good at it. I'm confident I can grill, in part because it's really easy. I'm quite sure I cannot bake, but I excel at eating baked things. I also enjoy photography, just not with people in the frame, so basically landscapes, architecture, and wildlife. And speaking of animals, I grew up with golden retrievers and am definitely a (big) dog person. But I can tolerate cats—if they act like dogs. Finally, like everyone else on this site, I like traveling. Honestly, who doesn't?
