outside. I get along well in the city or on the trail (backpacking,
camping, climbing). I like art (making, viewing etc) and I like to
build things. I have landscaped a nice backyard (for a city lot in
What I’m doing with my life
I work with teens as a social worker. I have a fun job that
sometimes gets a little crazy but I also get summers off so it all
evens out. I like to create and build stuff: home
construction/rehab, art, photography, music. I have been doing a
lot of yoga. It keeps my head level and its a great work out. I
bicycle around town a quite a bit. I haven't traveled much in the
last year but I do like to travel. I've been allover the US. I
really like the West Coast and the desert. I really need to get out
of the country (in due time I guess).
I’m really good at
I think I am pretty good at my job. I like to create, build and
grow things. I am good with my hands. I am always conceptualizing,
building and working on some project inside, outside, somewhere.

My taste ranges from jazz to noise and from loud rock/punk to
americana roots and hip hop. There is a lot of good music to be

Vonnegut, Edward Abby, Dune, Dark Tower graphic novels, Non Fiction
Science stuff like Brian Greene, Zen Mind Beginners Mind, Tao Te
Ching and work related stuff.
I am a vegetarian and have been for about 15ish years. I have no
problem with meat eaters just not my thing. I recently reintroduced
fish into my diet. I like to check out old new restaurants around
Columbus. There seems to be someplace new popping up.
The six things I could never do without

Guilty pleasure (that i think i need):
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My personality type is "thinker" so I think a lot. Currently I
think about living in the moment. What am I currently doing (goals,
projects art stuff etc). I spearheaded a parade that happened in my
neighborhood last spring. So I am thinking about parade planning
soon...it will get me through the winter.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends or solo to see a local band, movie, dinner or
chillin out on the deck. Sometimes hanging out and watching Bill
