I am caring, empathetic, and like to live on the edge every once in awhile. I love my job and feel rewarded everyday. I speak Spanglish well. If I had the energy and the time, I would go to a different concert every week and a different country every few months.
I am outgoing, talkative, and adventurous, but every once in awhile I like my alone time. I am also sweet and sensible. I also enjoy spending time with my niece.
What I’m doing with my life
Living life to the fullest and having as much fun as I can. I have one foot in Oakland and one foot in San Francisco. My goal is to try something new every week. One day I hope to have a yard and a dog. Lately I have felt a creative and artistic void. So I am looking to explore how I can fill that this year.
I’m really good at
Listening, walking long distances, swimming, being a sound board for people to talk to, writing, maintaining good relationships, and creating an eclectic Netflix queue.
