My career requires me to be ultra responsible by day, but after
hours the tie comes come off, the jeans or shorts go on, and the
kid is back! I'm energetic and active, but have a readily
accessible "off" switch and don't believe a day at home is a day
gone to waste. I take pride in my sense of humor and ability to
make almost anything fun- friends say I can turn a bad day around.
I'm edgy and tough enough to make you feel safe, yet a flat-out
sucker for happy endings. My god-daughter both cracks me up and
melts my heart- I fly or drive to SF at least a couple times a year
to see her and the rest of my 11 nieces and nephews. Maybe someday
I'll move back there. Or to a cabin on a lake. Or a river. I like
curiosity, deep talks that devolve into hysterical laughter;
spontaneous road trips; a good nap; both playing and watching
sports; being in, on, or around water or snow; summer; pubs with
pool tables; a good old fashioned dress-to-the-nines nights out;
spending an entire day at home on the deck; sleeping late;
chocolate milk. I could do without closed minds, mean spirits,
complacency, folding laundry, tomatoes. I believe in simple things
like teamwork; integrity; holding hands; random acts of kindness;
honesty; humor-even in the face of toughest times; chivalry;
character; paying it forward. .
What I’m doing with my life
By day I'm a prosecuting attorney handling homicide, sex crimes and
crimes against kids. The rest of the time I love playing/watching
sports, hanging with friends and finding water holes to swim in
with my dog!
I’m really good at
Problem solving, asking questions, listening, dealing with crises,
not judging, public speaking, most sports, BBQ, making my dog
The first things people usually notice about me
I've never asked people what they first notice about me. I'd like
to think it's my energy, humor and the fact that I actually listen
to the answers to the questions I ask.
The six things I could never do without
Bodies of water in the mountains
My pooch (I know- she won't live forever)
Some form of benevolence
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My brain rarely shuts off, unfortunately. So anywhere from inane
things like why you never see baby pigeons, to practical things
like how cool it will be when I finally have a cabin on a river or
You should message me if
You can be adventurous, but don't define yourself by how many
stamps you have on your passport or how many physical mountains
you've climbed. You are bright, fun-loving, curious, open minded,
well-spoken, honest and care deeply.... about something. You take
the serious stuff seriously but have a pretty solid playful streak.
You're active and willing to try new things but don't feel
compelled to always be moving. You believe some of the best
memories can be made when the power goes out, or the car gets a
flat, or on a rainy Sunday when neither of us feels much like
getting out of sweats or straying too far from bed or the couch.
Oh- and please be a sports fan, or at least be cool with the fact
that I am.
