I'm hungry - for reality and the truth of the matter, as hard to accept or unpleasant as it may be. I hate pretention, and pretentious people get on my bad side quickly. I can't swallow bullshit, as one friend tells me, and I won't try to feed you bullshit either. No matter who you are, what you believe, or how you live, if you're honest, thoughtful and self-aware about it, we can be friends.
I like to laugh, be with my friends, read, analyze things, and ride my bike. I try not to take myself or life too seriously, but my friends say I am intense, and I guess they're probably right. I am very ambitious and driven. I've had the privilege of traveling all over the world and living in two countries outside the US. Perhaps my greatest love is exploring- the thrill of being on the way to somewhere new!
