Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
For me listening speaks louder than words and actions louder than
promises. I always try to treat others as I would want to be
treated whether at work, in friendships or relationships. I love
the sound of laughter and can't imagine a world without humor
(especially dry humor). I like giving more than receiving,
especially gifts that are created rather than purchased. From a
pretty young age I have traveled and lived abroad and have great
curiosity and respect for different cultures and landscapes. I find
peace and inspiration hiking and exploring the outdoors, and love
to share that with others. Art is central to my work and
I am curious, passionate and empathetic.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Though many would describe me as an educator, I am lifelong
learner. I have had the good fortune to work with youth in AZ and
throughout the globe. I help youth use photography and other
creative media as a vehicle for sharing their stories and
advocating for social change. When I am not working with youth, I
work as a photographer. I strive to use my images to encourage
others to open their eyes and minds to their own world and the
worlds around them.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Dreaming big, making photographs, making fun of myself and others,
eating sweets, listening, hiking, sports, watching movies, getting
people excited about random stuff, and connecting people and ideas.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not sure, but my friends would likely describe me as shy (at
first), patient, passionate, independent, quirky, level-headed,
fun, gentle, modest, worldly, and curious.

I am a bit of a movie freak, as I love watching movies, especially
quirky foreign ones, like Amelie, The Visitor and Cinema
Food is a beautiful thing. I like all types of food, but
particularly Thai, Vietnamese and Indian food. Italian is also up
there, but it has to be just right. I have a soft spot for soul
food too. I love pies, cobblers and sweets of that sort.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Where to expend my energy...
Why don't we teach kids in school what they really need to know to

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I am looking for a woman that respects and values other's opinions
but isn't afraid to voice her own. A woman who has traveled, lived
or was born abroad, or who has done none of this, but is eager to
explore the world. I am passionate about food and am looking for a
woman who appreciates a tasty hole in the wall joint as much as a
fine restaurant. If you are passionate about life, learning, and
laughter, give a shout.
