Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I know what I want from life and I go after it. I am energized by
new experiences, exploring “Minnesota things” like the Winter
Carnival, or traveling internationally (SE Asia was amazing!)
Sports are great, but I also appreciate the arts, and worked for a
professional theatre before grad school.
In a relationship I want to be an unshakable rock my partner can
rely on and vice versa. I’m looking forward to romantic evenings,
cooking together and learning small details about each other. Days
we end up spending the whole day together, simply because we are
having so much fun. I realize that relationships aren’t always
easy, and that you have to communicate, compromise, and be
emotionally available in order for them to work.
I appreciate some structure, but life also demands risk and
spontaneity. It’s been a great ride so far and I can’t wait to see
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Do you like Fruit Snacks? Having finished grad school in
California, I recently moved to Minneapolis to work in Marketing
for General Mills managing Fruit Snacks. How I feel about the move
seems to ebb and flow with the seasons for some odd reason. :)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Skiing and softball. I also have a decent singing voice and can do
a mean Barry White at karaoke!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My sense of humor, witty banter, and easygoing nature. And probably
my deep voice – I once tried to work in voice-overs.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Friends & family. (Although has anyone ever said that they
don’t value family and friends? :)
2. Sleep Cycle App. The best app out there, in my opinion.
3. Ski equipment/hiking shoes. Love to get outdoors and keep
4. Passport. Travel is amazing! Favorites include Tahoe, Boston,
Thailand, Kenya, and Europe.
5. College chili recipe. From the local deli. I convinced them to
give it to me when I graduated.
6. Faith. Important in my life. I believe that God is love, and try
to live this in my daily life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a
Tootsie Pop. :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
With family or friends. Could be drinks on a local rooftop or BBQ
and lawngames in the summer, bonfire in the fall, or game/movie
night in the winter.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love the Olympics. Not terribly private, but probably best to err
on the side of not confessing too much on the internet!
