I've been in the Bay Area for a little over two years now and I
feel like I've barely scratched the surface. I love live music and
it is hard to find me without earbuds in my ears. I am always open
to trying something at least once, be it food, a great hike, or
your favorite game. I have a very active lifestyle, love
running/walking everywhere, and am always looking for new tennis
partners. I believe that the world is such an amazing place, but it
feels like a waste to go through it alone. Our experiences have so
much more meaning when they are shared and there is nothing more
beautiful than the connections we can form through that shared
What I’m doing with my life

Seeing the fine details. I am also really good at playing devil's
advocate, but I try to keep myself in check. I know a lot about a
great many subjects and I am always looking to learn more. I love
exploring things and like to solve problems. Social justice is also
really important to me and I try to keep it in mind in any decision
I make. I also give good advice.
The first things people usually notice about me
I think people notice that I am not afraid to speak my mind. I am
very honest and don't hesitate to give my opinion on whatever
catches my attention.

Boobies, you know...the bird (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Booby
Seriously, I try to find ways to make the world a better place in
whatever small way I can. I try to stay well informed of what is
going on in my community helping out and in finding fun activities
to participate in...I'm a fan of the farmer's market.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
