Traveling is my passion - I'm lucky enough to travel all over the world for my job ... But I also take the time to do 1-2 international trips for fun too. I just had to get more pages added to my passport last year, believe it or not.
I love my family, friends, my job, and have a good time doing almost anything. I don't take myself too seriously ... And have a hard time relating to people who do.
I grew up in Ohio ... went to college in Indiana ... and have lived in Los Angeles for about 11 years now. Being from the Midwest (and the daughter of a football coach), one of my favorite things to do is watch sports - whether it's on my couch, at a bar, or at the stadium. Don't get me wrong though - I also love girly things like shopping, musical theater, and bad reality television.
Other things I enjoy:
Sushi, sarcasm, vodka, Stephen Colbert, high-heel shoes, Howard Stern, Indiana Basketball, witty banter, musicals, Rachel Maddow, drinking games, watching Seinfeld & Friends like it's 1999, Don Draper, book stores, comfy chairs, baseball games, wine tasting, Aaron Sorkin, museums, staying up late, and sleeping in
After years of working hard & putting my career first, I realized that I need to start making dating an effort. So, here we go! This is my first real foray into online dating, so be kind, please! :)
...knowing all the theme songs to every 80s television show
...picking out the perfect restaurant for the perfect occasion (my friends call me a human Zagat guide)
...debating politics & current events
...high-fiving people when I'm drunk
TV shows - current: Colbert Report, Mad Men, Parks & Rec, The Americans, Episodes, Homeland, SNL, Top Chef, New Girl, Girls, etc...
(All-time list: Quantum Leap, Family Ties, Friday Night Lights, Who's the Boss, The State, Seinfeld, The West Wing (or anything Aaron Sorkin))
Books - Middlesex, Art of Racing in the Rain, Time Traveler's Wife, Plainsong, Prodigal Summer, Secret History. I read a lot - these are just my absolute faves
Food - Sushi, Indian, Thai, everything

Is it bad that I have 2 alcohol-related things on here???
...how I can learn to dance like Justin Timberlake
...what book I should read next
...if I'd go gay for Rachel Maddow
...if I should really try the online dating thing
