I'm a passionate person who cares deeply about human rights locally and globally. My friends describe me as very caring, genuine, and down to earth; I'm also direct and honest. I'm sarcastic, usually witty, and I think I'm hilarious. I am generally open and interested in trying anything from new experiences to foods and the right company can make all the difference!
I love theme parties and will spend months thinking up a costume. I feel most connected when in the midst of an in-depth intellectual conversation and I love learning about esoteric things such as leaf-cutter ant dwellings. I'm just as comfortable at a gallery or night on the town as I am at a BBQ or on a hike. Traveling, preferably internationally, is my absolute favorite activity; my next trip is to Vietnam and I'll most likely swing by Thailand and Cambodia...and maybe Laos as well. Giving back to the community is important to me and I appreciate people who consider their impact on the world.
I'm interested in someone who is down to earth, has a good heart, can make me laugh, and can laugh at themselves. I'm really attracted to intelligence - talk nerdy to me! Other valuable characteristics: active, will join me for a hike, pushes me beyond my limits, can call me out and can hold their own in a debate, enjoys traveling and is a low-key travel companion, is open-minded, and genuinely happy with life. Added bonus if you can cook (anything in a box does not count.)
