My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
“The only things in this life that you really regret are the risks you didn’t take. And God knows if you see a chance to be happy, you grab it with both hands and to hell with the consequences.” -- Grumpy Old Men

Life is short (kind of like me) and I can’t let it pass me by. When I had the chance to explore life beyond the hills of my little hometown, Danville, I took it and left for Cambridge, MA. Surprisingly, I loved New England so much I stayed there for almost 10 years.

Working hard throughout school has granted me with amazingly fun opportunities. I’ve treated diverse populations for oral medicine, raised thousands of dollars for Team in Training, Dana Farber, Muscular Dystrophy, and Run for Liver Research. I’ve also literally bleed and sweat in Ironman distance tri’s and 12+ hr adventure race competitions, touched the roof of Africa, and opened treasure chests 100 feet below the ocean surface. And whenever possible, I love the feeling of champagne powder under a pair of skis or surfing with dolphins off the California coastline.

Fortunately, I’m in a place and position in my life that allows me to travel halfway around the world to volunteer at international aid camps and to take in local culture. I still remember making hacky-sacks with monklets (little monks in training) out of foil wrappers and pebbles in the Himalayas. If you ever trek the Everest trail to base camp, don’t forget to circumambulate the stupa at Tengboche. And if you encounter a Maori warrior who throws a silver fern at your feet, pick it up and say “Kia ora.” It just might save your life.

I'm not looking for perfection. Most people agree that it doesn't exist. I'm just looking for that connection two people have which allows them to open up and share their lives together. I hope to find someone who has a great sense of humor, a good head on her shoulders, and an adventurous spirit.

So, if you're the girl next door who is passionate about how she lives and who is just as comfortable in a pair of running shoes as she is in a pair of heels, then shoot me a quick email. We can always go for coffee or a short run (not necessarily in those respective combo’s).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to make a living while not forgetting to make a life.

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Two things:
1) I'm the biggest twinkie you'll ever meet (yellow on the outside and white on the inside). For instance, I speak Spanish better than I can speak Mandarin or Cantonese.
2) I'm like the energizer bunny. I keep going and going and going...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite reads include: Outliers, Freakonomics, Predictably Irrational, as well as The Last Lecture, The Four Agreements and Bossy Pants.

Movies provide a wonderful escape from reality. One of my all-time fav's is Goonies because it has it all - action, drama, comedy and romance.

When it comes to music, I'm all over the place blasting oldies, indie rock, top 40, classic rock, R & B, acapella, classical, and punk. Yep, I have quite an eclectic mix on the iPod.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music
Laughter
Good friends and family
Symmetrical all-wheel drive
Snow covered mountains
A clean ocean beach (preferably with a smooth, long right break)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How is it that Grape-nuts is made of neither grapes nor nuts; and Rhode Island is neither a "road" nor an "island"?

On a more serious note, I think about how to be a better person.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
usually out and about like enjoying the company of my friends or on my way to a new adventure. In the winter, I enjoy apres ski parties or chilling with my fellow patrolmen. During the summer, you can find me in the city at a comedy club or wrapped up in my sleeping bag in the wilderness. It like it all!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I was a kid, I once ran into a mesh screen (of a sliding glass door) and bounced back 3 feet.
