I am an optimist, and a teddy bear. I give great hugs and love to relax. I have been told that I give messages that will instantly relax and put you to sleep.
I like creating and observing art in all forms and am fascinated with making ideas and dreams into workable and creatable plans and then into reality. I am not into conventionality and I typically arrive a solutions through unpredictable and creative means.
Traveling and learning about other people and cultures is a large focus in my life. This is such a diverse and fascinating world that is largely unknown to me. I fully intend to explore as much of it as possible. I have a masters in architecture and am currently studying Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), and I am currently teaching English to international students at NAU.
I want to be an active participant and enjoy life to the fullest. Most of all I want to be a positive influence in others, I want to see people progress and achieve their dreams.
I am a mountain biking junky. I have withdrawals and get the shakes if I don't go on at least one good ride a week, preferably 3-4 rides. Some times it's all I can think about. There is nothing better than going to some far out remote and beautiful place while getting a great workout and plenty of fresh air with my dog Bata (said like bata bing bata doom). He's a great dog. It's not a prerequisite that you love mountain biking as mush as me, but it would sure help.
