Well, what to say... I have been very focused on my career and
education since I moved away from home twelve years ago. Part of it
was to build a foundation of independence for myself financially
and professionally. When reflecting, I believe that part of it was
to avoid dealing with who I was.
Today, I am glad to say that I have achieved my goals and balanced
my life. I have become a successful professional and met my
expectations for financial independence. Emotionally, I am
grounded, confident and appreciate myself more than I ever have
before. I am glad to have hit the 30's mark. I feel that this
decade will bring stability as I discover more and more about who I
I am not looking for someone to complete me. I am complete. The
right person will be someone I appreciate and admire for his own
charisma and independence. I am looking for you to compliment my
life and I yours. If you think you have what it takes, then take
the step and say hi.
What I’m doing with my life
After graduating with my masters, I thought I was done. I was going
to use my credential and my education to inspire youth in a
classroom setting for the duration of my career.
However, long about the seventh year, I felt that I had a different
calling. I knew that I could teach, but could I really be there for
a student throughout their career as their number one mentor and
support system? I saw it as a new and exciting challenge. I almost
immediatley enrolled in a counseling program.
Today, I am a counselor working with an amazing group of students.
I appreciate my job and all of the people that I work with. Going
to work is a treasure because I truly enjoy what I do.
I’m really good at
living by four major tenants. I feel that life is much simpler than
most make it out to be. I appreciate the fact that I have been
given life and try to live it fully everyday. Living life fully has
a different definition depending on the day. I love all people in
my life. That is not to say I always like everyone, but hate is
self-distructive. I am a student of life. I learn with each passing
moment. I am curious by nature and look to absorb all that I can. I
want to take all that I have come to know and give it back to
others before my time comes to depart this Earth. If I help just
one person, then I feel accomplished.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and personality.

The six things I could never do without
Love, trust, communication, helping others, family, friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
those that matter most. I love and appreciate all paths that cross
mine. I am finally understanding the balance between my own needs
and the needs of others better than ever before.
Today, I remain very spiritually grounded, but I wouldn't say I am
religious. I have been jaded by the politics and imperfections of
religious dogma that seek to control as opposed to influence
curiousity and a true personal relationship with whatever the
higher power may be.
I also have a bit of a creative streak. I love to be creative with
my friends and family. Whether it be putting on a major musical,
singing, acting or writing, I love to get lost in the development
of new or different.
One other area that I think a lot about is traveling. I love to
travel. I want to explore this world and hope to find someone that
has the money and vacation time that I do so that we can do it
On a typical Friday night I am
Out to dinner with someone or off to a movie or a theatrical
production. I rarely sit at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I may go through life without finding the perfect compliment to
share it with.
