I was born and raised in sunny San Diego along with a little brother and sister (and amazing golden retriever). Growing up I experimented with gymnastics, soccer, tennis, cross country, and pole vaulting. The only problem was that I'm super noncompetitive. I found myself trying to have a good time while others would pout if we didn't win.
Anyway, I went to college at UC Santa Barbara. I ended up graduating a year early to avoid having to take out a student loan. What was I thinking? Who leaves college early? ;) During those 3 years I was able to study abroad in Barcelona. I also visited Paris, Athens, Rome, and Venice while in Europe. Recently I also got a great opportunity to travel to Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Macau (twice).
After college I moved back to SD and tried out a variety of jobs including working in high end resorts, real estate (I am licensed), law, health insurance (I am licensed), and starting my own business. After a while I decided that nothing really captured my attention, and that I needed a big change (in the form of a move). I moved to Seattle at the end of 2012 and have been in Wallingford since. Oh, and I adopted a shepherd mix puppy named Taco ... She rocks!
Since moving here I joined a kickball league. I'm awful and probably embarrass myself, but find myself having a great time and smiling regardless. Now who's up for trampoline dodgeball?
