In my 8 years here, I've done a variety of wonderful and varied activities, including working in the non-profit world on food security and HIV/AIDS issues, helping connect seniors in the community with transportation to their medical appointments, "mavericking" and working on an off the grid utilities crew at a small retreat centre in the Cascade mountains near Lake Chelan, and hiking from Mexico to Canada along the Pacific Crest Trail.
I tend to be a bit on the quieter side at first, but I love talking with people about their motivations and passions. I've always been told I'm a good listener.
In a past life I was an actor, choral singer, and competitive swimmer, but I no longer actively participate in any of those activities.
I enjoy traveling, and have done a fair share of it internationally. I love hiking, camping, and backpacking. I love a good card game, can weave a nice rug (provided a warped loom), and feel equally at home at the ballpark, the contra dance, or the operahouse.
