Most of my friends would say that I am pretty game for almost anything. I love seeing action, comedies and documentaries. I also love going to different music concerts. I've been to over 5 concerts in the past year. Going hiking, camping or just getting away for the weekend is another thing I like to do. Sitting at a cafe, enjoying a hot chocolate or a glass of wine, discussing the latest sports game (Go Seahawks and Mariners!) or world news is a great way to relax. I am a pretty open person and I am willing to try anything and everything almost once. I've learned a lot of languages, many different cultures through traveling around Africa and Europe. I love to smile and laugh at odd or funny jokes.
I am originally from the green and rainy state of Washington. Loved the place and sports from there and will always call it home, but I love traveling to other cities, states, countries and continents. I have a love for geography and maps, so traveling to random places or to fun upbeat touristy areas is something I enjoy. I also like to relax on the weekends either by hiking, traveling to somewhere or staying at home with a book or a movie.
During my off time when not teaching I go hiking or to the beach, sightseeing and traveling to unknown places, getting lost in cities or hiking, and having great discussion about religions, politics, and/or the world.
