I grew up in Boston but spent several years in Texas teaching 8th grade US History on the Mexican Border with Teach for America. Teaching was easy compared to finding housing out in the middle of nowhere - I wound up on a massive scavenger hunt just to find a place to rent/live (think going door to door). Those experiences were incredible and made me fall in love with education and Texas.
Music has always been a part of my life - I can rock a violin and love outdoor concerts. With or without violins. I am particularly fond of concerts that feature guys with guitars and also really enjoy the classical kind. ;)
There are few things that make me smile more than getting out for a morning run along the Charles, especially if I can get a few friends to come with. In fact, adding friends to anything makes things more fun.
If you're into activity, we're going to get along just fine. And if you're a fan of global travel, even better! I love to visit new countries whenever I can and my future travel list is constantly evolving. I also enjoy working out and have been involved in CrossFit for the last few months. That and 6 am yoga in my special yellow yoga pants are my new gym obsessions. That said and a bit surprisingly, I'm a closet couch potato. Most people think of me running races, being social, and traveling, but the truth is I also love some good relaxing time.
I am looking for someone who is optimistic, adventurous, cares about what they do, is excited to enjoy the simple things in life, and doesn't mind taking off to a new destination on a whim. I have enjoyed my life but am looking to settle into a family of my own, so I am of course looking for someone who is interested in the same.
