I'm a strong, smart, independent, compassionate young professional
in the DC metro area. I'm a bit of a history buff, and I enjoy
traveling to historic and Civil War sites. I also like to travel
just to see the sites, especially out west and in New England, and
really want to get to Europe. I'm a loyal and trustworthy friend. I
can be fiesty, I have a sarcastic sense of humor, and I generally
try to give 100% at whatever I set my mind to do. I love to cook
and bake, and make a lot of things from scratch just because they
taste better. I grew up in the country and I love my roots.
What I’m doing with my life
Outside of work I'm pretty involved as a Civil War Living Historian
(aka Civil War Reenactor). It's fun and I'm constantly getting to
learn new things and see historic sites that not a lot of people
get to experience. I also take yoga and meditation classes, and
travel periodically to visit family and friends out of town. I like
to quilt and sew when I have extra time too.
I’m really good at
being there when someone needs me. I'm dependable and trustworthy,
personally and professionally.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile :) or my bright blue eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite book - I'm a little behind on reading since it's usually
the last thing on the list, but mostly I read Civil War
Favorite movies - Blazing Saddles, Dirty Dancing - and just about
any action or comedy.
Favorite music - Gary Allan, Sugarland, Toby Keith, Jason Aldean,
Journey, Foreigner...my new favorite is Black Keys. I'm kinda all
over the map on music, I'll listen to almost anything.
Favorite Shows - NCIS, Duck Dynasty, Big Bang Theory, How I met
your Mother, Dirty Jobs, Mythbusters.
Favorite food - Sweets of any kind! My favorite breakfast is a
sesame bagel with peanut butter. I like italian, mediterranean,
german cuisine all rank up at the top of my list.
The six things I could never do without
Coffee! My friends & my family. Laughter (a really good belly
laugh), and I guess I'll have to think about the rest...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to better myself. Be it aiming for new goals at work, or
pushing myself to do new things.
On a typical Friday night I am
either driving to a Civil War Battlefield for an event or meeting
up with friends/family. Sometimes it feels great to just stay home
and watch movies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't watch horror movies because I get nightmares... or my mind
runs away with itself, lol.
You should message me if
you want to get to know me better. I'm sure I can't tell you
everything in a couple questions, so if you want to know more about
me, just ask!
