My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I thought this would be a great way to expand my circle of friends and meet new people who I would otherwise never get to meet.

Being born and raised in a Christian environment has shaped who I am today. This is why it is fairly effortless to treat others as I would like to be treated. My general philosophy is to do right and everything else will take care of itself (big believer in karma). These principles have served me well throughout the years and I plan to continue to subscribe to them.

My existence is a happy, optimistic one filled with support from family and friends who keep me grounded. These are the people I try to get a healthy dose of everyday because they are so near and dear.

Speaking of friends, they have made working at my current employer for over 12 years very enjoyable. About the work itself, I find it very challenging, but along with challenges comes professional growth and rewards. That said, do look forward to using some of the vacation I've accumulated over the years. Some of the places I'd like to visit include Peru, Venice, Rome, Costa Rica, Maldives, etc. I'm currently working on planning a trip to Thailand so if any of you have been there, I'd love to talk sometime.

No matter what I'm doing, I will find value and enjoy just about any activity and am easily excited by the simple pleasures of life. Finding great enthusiasm even from the littlest of things comes naturally to me and I don't hesitate let it be known through a smile, hearty laughter, a shimmy shake or whatever. Did I really just use the word 'whatever' in my profile? I really don't like that word for whatever reason...ha!

I'd much rather prefer experiences and memories over material matter any day of the week. I enjoy trying different things especially when it comes to food and desserts. Exploring and soaking up what nature has to offer never ceases to amaze. Capturing memories on photos is also a favorite pastime. I'm currently taking salsa classes and am having absolute ball with it.

I guess the best way to describe my personality is I’m vibrant and easy going with a quiet confidence, yet social and personable (complicated enough?). I don't take myself too seriously but know when it's time to turn it up. Work brings out the assertive side of me while down-time gives me a chance to be my laid back self.

I enjoy keeping active, trying different cuisines, attending festivals, looking for a new restaurant, live performances especially in smaller venues, watching and playing sports, travel, the occasional movie, play, symphony, musical, etc.

People who would interest me the most are those who have a sunny disposition, are sincere, considerate, funny/sarcastic/ passionate, active, educated, independent family-oriented, drama-free, healthy and appreciate the things that really matter. That's not asking to much is it?

Feel free to say ‘Hi’ and let's see where it leads. It might take us to something wonderful...a friendship, a new connection or referral, a new travel buddy, maybe even something more. It may even lead nowhere; who knows if you don't try. Promise I don’t bite...maybe just nip…haha. Happy searching! (hope you all find what you are looking for)

Reading: Who Moved My Cheese, Chicken Soup for the Soul, Hunger Games and Tuesdays with Morrie were all great reads. I tend to gravitate toward non-fiction and articles.

Movies: Shawshank Redemption, Forks Over Knives, The Usual Suspects, Monsters Inc., Goodfellas, The Sixth Sense, Happy, Kill Bill, Remember the Titans,...more recently, This is the End had me laughing for 2 hours straight...have any recommendations?

I don't watch too much TV but enjoy Modern Family, the Big Bang Theory (love Sheldon's acting), Dexter, some reality TV and am currently trying to catch up with the rest of the world and get to the final episode of Breaking Bad.

Music: rock alternative, old school hip-hop, Black Eyed Peas, Muse, Maroon 5, A Tribe Called Quest, Olec Blacc, Pink, Of Monsters and Men, One Republic, Imagine Dragons, Capitol Cities, Amos Lee, Kodaline, Brett Dennen.

Food favorites: Thai, Mexican, pizza, Vietnamese, Japanese, cheese, seafood, ceviche, tacos. I'm pretty much willing to try just about anything. Suggestions?

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you find something interesting about me, you're easy-going, drama-free and want to give chemistry a chance. I get along with everyone so what I am look for is that 'chemistry' (however defined) that separates from that of friends. Feel free to say 'hi' and let's see where it goes from there.
