I come with a mildly sarcastic exterior and a seriously sincere inner core, as well as a preference for thoughtful conversations, long walks, and shared meals. An herbalist in training and an EMT, I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty and I'm a good person to have in your corner when the chips are down.
Born and raised in the mountain west, I've lived on both coasts, in big cities and small towns, and travelled in foreign lands. Currently I'm on a sojourn in El Salvador boosting my Spanish skills and (hopefully) serving as an asset to an NGO in San Salvador.
I love the quiet moments when the sky is gathering the sun's first light, the not quite silence that pulses deep in the woods, and the roar of rivers and thunderstorms.
As a runner, biker, swimmer, and hiker I prefer to be outside, and think every day is better if you get your heart rate up.
I am all about open communication, consent, and compassion.
My bed is seldom made, my glass is half full, and there are papers scattered all over my floor. I have a song on my lips and a spark in my eye. I am energetic, empathetic, and emphatic.
