I love to travel and have been on many international trips to date. I've backpacked across Japan, SCUBA dived in Cozumel and Belize, walked across the locks of the Panama Canal, and hiked a mountain in Hawai'i. When time permits I participate in CouchSurfing where I host travelers at my home. To date I've met people from Italy, China, Hungary, Denmark, Greece, Finland, England, Guatemala, Germany, and many US states.
Family and friends are incredibly important to me. I am from a small Texas town and try to go home 2-3 times a year. The change of environment back to dense trees, farms, and five red lights can be quite refreshing! My friends here in Houston are mostly people I know from school and lab and they are some of the most caring, fun, and smart people that I have ever met. When we get downtime we enjoy playing board games, watching movies, going to a local bar, or catching up over a meal.
I'd be up for a dating relationship if I meet the right person, but I'm also up for making a new friend and finding people who share likeminded interests. I'm looking for someone that's got a good sense of humor, an interest in trying new things, a passion for reading and current events, the itch to travel, and an interest in exercise and the outdoors. If this sounds up your alley, then I look forward to hearing from you :-)
