My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a grounded person who can be swayed with big ideas. I tend to be practical but admit to a hopeless romantic leaning. I value an adventure just as much as the comforts of home. I will always choose quality over quantity when it comes to….well, everything. I enjoy a great conversation. I can make a meal out of the contents of most fridges. I strive to keep learning, growing, and traveling.

I believe we destroy many relationships by forcing permanence, yet I seek a long term partner. I recognize that an unconventional life is the path to something extraordinary, but I work full time and do my best to raise two girls – responsibilities bring convention. Does that mean I give up the extraordinary? I’m just trying to figure it out. I'd love to have some company and perspective.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
This question reminds of John Lennon's quote: “When I was five years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down “happy.” They told me I didn’t understand the assignment. I told them they didn’t understand life.”

I am lucky to love what I do during work hours. I'd been an investigator for the federal government for years, enforcing various federal labor laws. My work is a unique mix of law, business, and social justice. I became the boss which forced my shoulders to grow broader & stronger. It just might be one of the coolest day jobs out there. It's taken me to DC, Chicago, Denver, Memphis, southern Georgia, and even Hawaii (still recovering from my Hawaii obsession).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
thinking about things (see below), hablando espanol, making waffles, public speaking, being a co-pilot on a roadtrip, taking pictures, reading books out loud to kids, strategizing, listening, negotiating, remembering where on the page in the Code of Federal Regulations the answer to a question can be found

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
warmth, water, fresh air, fresh food, kiddos, a sense of community
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How can I stop thinking so that I can get some sleep? Is time slipping by too quickly? What's for dinner? What's the difference between a plumber & pipe-fitter? Does an egg processing facility qualify for the agriculture exemption under the FLSA? When you meet the right person, is it readily apparent? Did the person that sewed my jeans or harvest these strawberries earn a livable wage? Who voted for Scott Walker? Am I late? What ARE the first things people notice about me?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I've got an every other Friday night ritual with my kiddos & my sister's family for dinner, cocktails, play, and weekly debriefing. The Friday that follows is a different story - it's my time and I cherish it!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Simon and Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water makes me weepy.
