Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Caution: recent travel history ahead...
Summer of 2014 brought me to Ecuador and the Galapagos! I co-led 36
student ambassadors on the journey of a lifetime. Hiking through
the Amazon with locals, snorkelling around the islands escorted by
eagle rays, and checking out the volcanos, especially Cotopaxi, was
a thrilling experience!
In August I officiated my best friend's wedding, what a privilege!
It was actually quite fun, and Monterey was gorgeous. Yep, I can
marry people. Fancy.
I spent the summer of 2013 on a road trip through Vancouver, BC and
surrounding areas...wine country was incredibly picturesque. Dirty
Laundry, Nk'mip, and See Ya Later Ranch were at the top of my
The summer of '12 I spent 2 months in Vietnam, Cambodia and
Laos...only to return home and then within 12 hours I was
rappelling down a 500 foot building, Fear Factor style, after
raising $ for Kids Included Together...the rappelling was the
reward, nuts eh?!? Needless to say-that was an exhilarating
experience, and I think the jet lag helped me get the nerve up to
actually go over the edge.... The crazy part is that I'm
claustrophobic and the elevator ride up made me more frightened
than the rappelling down. In May I also went paragliding at the
Torrey Pines gliderport...which was incredible also. In
October/December I was in Vancouver and in November I got to hang
out in Manhattan.
2011 brought me to India and London, and also had me sporting my
first black eye...it's a funny story that involves Shakespeare and
a lot of blood....
Next up? 2015-Australia in July and maybe Cuba in August.
So, when I'm not taxiing to and from the airport...
I can't be simply summarized...I tried...it's like packing
lightly---beyond my capabilities... ;) I'm open to learning
I can tell you that I am a bit of a brat...a smart-ass, fun loving,
sort of brat. I have high standards for myself and others...I think
that you can really judge a person by how they treat someone they
can get nothing from.
I love to learn...my curiosity is truly insatiable.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am focused on appreciating, learning and exploring. I'm trying to
listen more. I'm hoping to find that person who loves relentlessly
and completely who won't give up when things are challenging.
I'm a traveler, a teacher, a learner in the classroom of life, a
volleyball player, a coach, a yoga mat user, a texter, a hiker, a
thank you card writer, a thinker, and a word/number enthusiast. I

at...might be much more telling...

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how I can travel more frequently and where I'd like to go next. I
also wonder why people aren't nicer to each other...and how far Pi
really goes...and when I am going to see my family next...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Enjoying dinner and a fine glass of wine with friends.
Or...planning my next getaway... Or scanning the room, for you. Or,
grading papers... Or playing Scrabble... Or, checking out the
latest new restaurant... Or, walking around the neighborhood... I'm
always looking for new ideas...
