Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an extremely dependable person and friend, self-reliant,
inquisitive, career-oriented, and may appear a bit “nerdy” until
people get to know me. Once I am comfortable with people the real
me emerges….silly, funny and very warm and caring. People describe
me as safe to be with during a tough time and I am a friend people
call in time of need. I care for people deeply and become very
loyal...in short, I have your back. People have described me as shy
initially and then when they spend time with me, they wonder how
they ever thought I was quiet!
I love adventure and new experiences. Little scares me as I am
willing to try about anything provided it’s legal and mostly safe.
I love to travel! In fact, my love of travel has provided me with
living experiences in several places including Washington D.C. (my
childhood home), Boston and London. I have lived in San Francisco
for 11 years and love it! I'd like to think of myself as a mix
between an east-coast traditionalist coupled with west-coast
liberalism and open-mindedness. But, I’m neither traditional nor a
I am an adventurer at heart and I absolutely love traveling and
exploring new places and cultures. I am fluent in English and
Spanish and enjoy experiencing the different ways people
I like to spend my free time outdoors hiking, running and biking,
which is a huge reason why I love the Bay area so much because
there are so many great places to be outside. If the weather is
nice, you'll find me running in gg park or the presidio most
weekends. I also enjoy a good book and a good movie and just
crashing on the couch too sometimes.
I love going out to eat and have a short-list of restaurants where
bartenders/servers know me by name. That said, I like trying new
things and will give anything a try. I enjoy all types of
restaurants from fancy 5-star places to down-home hole in the
walls….actually some of my best memories have been in dives where
they have great personality, are friendly and serve great comfort
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to keep my life balanced and simple, or better said: not
over-complicate it, and continue to create fun and friendships.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My boss would say I’m really good at my job, but isn’t that boring
to say on these things? So, I am good at creating adventure, fun,
laughter, I’m a super speller, and I’m good at being a
low-maintenance traveler. I enjoy camping, cooking, and having
superb hand-eye-foot coordination and reflexes (I have sports to
thank for that)

bar that I have manhandled beyond belief.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

the world with just those 2 things), family and friends, my iphone,
neosporin, gummy bears
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what the future may bring
exciting vacation destinations to visit

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It depends. On a fun night out, I'm usually catching happy hour and
dinner with friends. A lower-energy night usually means stopping at
the grocery store on the way home from work, making dinner, opening
a bottle of wine and watching some recorded TV shows or a DVD.
Either way, I don't usually stay out super late Friday nights as
I’m tired and want to be sure I can kickstart my saturday morning
activities in full gear bright and early.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am great at Powerpoint and love economics.….On a more interesting
note, I sang karaoke once and received absolutely NO applause. I
mean the place was silent…..I like to think the silence was because
I was soo good, but as it was in Germany, I understand silence is
not demonstrative of a disaster….Either way, I doubt I’ll be trying
karaoke again anytime soon.
