A little about me… what can I say? I'm a hopeless romantic. I think champagne is the perfect drink for any setting. I sing (off key) in my car and I love going to see live music since I can sing along without being heard. I love the beach in late afternoon when the sun begins to sink and the hint of a cool breeze comes off the water. I am sarcastic to a fault and really do believe that laughter is the best medicine. I love photography and travel with 3 cameras because I'm indecisive. I love cooking and do it often. I spent a semester in high school living on a farm in Maine and think a lot about how I can spend more time there. I’m always planning my next travel adventure, and look forward to getting to know a place from the inside out rather than just going to check the major sites off a list. What else? My family is very important to me; although I moved away right after college I still take all the chances I can to get home to see them. My friends are a close second and have become my family here!
What am I looking for? Someone laid back and easy going. Someone up for local adventures or trips further afield, always wondering what we might discover as we venture to new places. Someone who has a job that is meaningful to them, and is not just a paycheck. Someone who has more words in their vocabulary than just ones relating to sports. And most importantly, someone who laughs at least … 13 times a day! Only kidding…
What I’m doing with my life
Working in emergency management for an educational travel company. Thinking about how I can make my dream of running a country inn come true. Always planning my next travel adventure.
I’m really good at
Solving problems and trouble shooting. It probably helps that it is
a big part of what I do at work, but it's also a great skill in
life. I am a great listener and will always make time to help my
friends work through the problems in their lives.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sarcasm. It may take me some time to warm up to people, but
humor usually shows through from the start.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love checking out new restaurants/bars but my standby is Figs - they have the best flatbread around! Recently I've loved checking out all of the new spots popping up in Cambridge & Somerville. I don't watch tons of TV when it's on primetime, but have been known to be sucked into some marathons thanks to my TiVo & Netflix. Some of my recent addictions have been Homeland and Sherlock (BBC version). I love live music and am always looking for a new band to check out; I think the best performer I've ever seen live is Bruce Springsteen - the man can put on a fabulous show!
The six things I could never do without
Travel - there's always somewhere to explore
Champagne/prosecco...or failing that, whiskey
My friends and family - they have made me who I am today
The beach - the sound of waves is the most calming thing I
A camera - there's so much to see in the world and I love to
Music - perfect to set any kind of mood
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Traveling. It may be part of my job, but it's also one of my
passions. Sometimes I find myself thinking of where I want to go
next when I'm still out on the road exploring somewhere, and when
I'm not on the road I'm always looking through the myriad of travel
books on my night table.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably doing something fairly low key after a week at work.
Usually along the lines of going out with friends to grab a bite to
eat and a few drinks. Maybe you'd like to be part of the agenda?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a very open person with the people I'm close with, but not
really one to publish my private details on the internet (you know
it never goes away, right?). But ask me anything as we get to know
each other and I'll tell you!
You should message me if
Anything I've said sparks your interest!
