“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.” --

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
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

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

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
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

Good friends and family
Symmetrical all-wheel drive
Snow covered mountains
A clean ocean beach (preferably with a smooth, long right break)

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

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!

door) and bounced back 3 feet.
