Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an adventurer. I'm passionate about exploring the world around
me near and far, discovering new places, trying new things, and
making connections across the globe. I care about the natural and
wild places on this earth and I tread lightly to minimize my
impact. I enjoy the journey and not just the destination.
I travel the world when I can, but the Bay Area is home. I am
grounded in my life here, and the variety of the Bay provides
plenty of opportunities for the new adventures I seek. I've lived
here for nearly 10 years and have a solid community.
I'm a loyal friend and an open book. I say what I mean and I mean
what I say. I am an independent introvert who loves one on one
conversation and prefers small gatherings over big crowds. I keep a
great balance between my downtime and being out and about. I'm a
natural planner and have a great eye for logistics and details.

around South America. It was a turning point in my journey and a
realization that my wanderlust runs deep. There's a big beautiful
world out there to explore.
Now I work as a bookkeeper at an SF-based tour company that
operates small-group tours across the U.S. visiting National Parks
and landmarks along the way. It's greatly satisfying to be a part
of an industry dedicated to enriching lives through unique travel
I love my job, but I'm not married to it. And when I'm not at work,
you might find me doing any of these things on any given day:
hiking, camping, trying out a new restaurant, cooking,
wine-tasting, soaking in hot springs, on a road trip, training in
my martial arts practice, relaxing in the comfort of home.
I’m really good at
