During the weekdays I'm an engineer working for one of the tech
companies in the Boulder area. I revel in my career and its
challenges while keeping a work/life balance that lets me live the
life I love. My friends and loved ones are cherished as are the
time I spend with them. For myself, I began a regular yoga practice
a few years ago and it's been a great addition to my life, keeping
me healthier and happier.
I'm ecstatic if the weather is good enough for an outdoor game of
volleyball at Wash Park, and I'm an avid social dancer.
Life in Colorado means I've really come to love being outdoors, and
living in Denver keeps me a confirmed urbanite. I might go hiking
now and then, or camping (novice at both), and likely to stay in
the city for the weekend. Parks, barbeques, biking, street
festivals... evenings at concerts, roller derby, or out with
friends, in at home. Part of the beauty of this city are the many
options and opportunities.
My last big vacation was a 3-week meandering about Australia. It
was my first trip abroad and I loved every minute of it. I still
reflect upon the trip and what it's given to me. Sydney, Adelaide,
Melbourne, a week in the outback...I fit in an awful lot and could
easily think of 3x as much to do if I go back. I'm overdue for my
next big vacation. Next stop: Scotland?
When I'm enjoying my home time, in addition to listening to plenty
of music, I read, cook, cocktail, and futz around on the computer.
I grew up in a family of teachers, and was raised in a
compassionate home. I care about the community around me, and
believe that it's our responsibility in life to leave things better
than we found them. A lot of what I have in life isn't "earned" or
"privilege," it's just luck, and we shouldn't neglect those who
aren't so lucky.
This pretty much sums up my outlook on life in 3 minutes
though hearing Stephen
Fry narrate anything for 3 minutes is time well-spent.
I'm content with who I am, but not complacent. I keep trying to
grow as a person, friend, and peer.
