My name is Mike, I was born and raised in Glendale. Went to ASU
after high school and got a business degree. Worked for a few years
and decided I needed a gross readjustment to my life. So, I spent a
year and change living in Hawaii on the island of Oahu. Afterwards,
I backpacked Europe and China and was able to be at the 2008 summer
olympics in Beijing. I then decided to return to school and got a
chemistry degree from the UofA. I returned to Phoenix a couple
years ago to be near my family as we dealt with loss. It feels
different to be home when everything has changed.
Currently, I am working for the State of AZ in the Newborn
Screening Lab. Its my first real job in my field, so I am mainly
just learning as much as possible and gaining all the experience I
I have a passion for travelling, backpacking, hiking, camping,
cultures, music, great conversations, swimming, and eating.
I like to dream. I like others in my life to dream. Dream about
what they want in their lives, what they want out of their lives,
what they want to do and who they want to be. Essentially, aspire
to do more than collect a paycheck. To be bold, take risk, laugh,
enjoy themselves, know who they are and want to be more.
I’m really good at
Dreaming. Motivation. Laughing. Enjoying Life. Questioning
The first things people usually notice about me
My laugh. Good or bad, I have multiple laughs and I laugh a lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My Life and the serendipitous moments that make it what it is. How
things go together, especially moments in time and people and
changes. How lives are lived as our own and for others
simultaneously. How each one of us are capable of so much but
strive for so little. How almost every thing we pursue in life is
not what it is worth and we miss out on the absolute essence of our
existence to play out our roles we never audtioned for and were
"born" into. so...essentially i do a lot of thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to figure out something to do and doing it. Now that the
summer is here, probably be spending more time out camping under
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like musicals. thats kinda private i guess.
You should message me if
you like my profile, want to get to know me and are just a cool
loving girl, looking to enjoy life and have a good time doing so.
