I grew up in the Bay Area and am a first generation Greek gal.
Family is really important to me. I graduated from SJSU with a BA
in English and currently work as an HR manager.
I really like to travel and am saving up to visit some friends in
Korea in the fall and Greece in 2014. I'm both a homebody and a fan
of crowds. Whenever I've been cooped up too much, I plan and
fantasize escape plans. Whenever I spend too much time roaming, I
crave hermit time.
I'm into a lot of different things. I like different ethnic foods
and like exploring different cultures. Luckily, I live in the Bay,
so there's lots of opportunity to explore different cultures, and I
can cheer for great teams: Giants, Niners, and Sharks!
Not much I'm not open too, besides bluegrass music and eating bugs.
I'm scared of heights but really want to go sky diving. I've never
seen snow but love the cold.
I'm random and crazy and pretty open about being both.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working as an HR manager for a retail company. A friend
recommended me for the position, but I fell in love with the role.
I love being the person people go to for help or questions, so I'm
I did major in English and am thinking about going back to school
in a couple years for a MFA degree.
I’m really good at
Helping people. I'm a really good listener and often give great
advice for things I usually have not even experienced myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sense of humor. I am either super loud or quiet, but either way
I have a sarcastic, dark, and more than slightly inappropriate
sense of humor at times.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Really depends on my mood. I like pretty much everything.
With music, only thing I don't care for is bluegrass and super
With food, anything that stares back leaves me racked with guilt. I
was a vegetarian for 3 years, and it doesn't bother me to eat the
odd bits, but anything that looks too familiar is
With books, again English major, so much love, but I really haven't
conjured up an interest in any spiritual/religious/metaphysical
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where the me of the past put the one thing I desperately need.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out and about, catching up with friends at dinner, watching a
movie, at a pub/club, or getting much needed downtime and sleep.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I judge people's grammar instinctively but pep talk myself into
attempting to let it go. It's that dang English training.
