My self-summary
I am a travel fanatic, outdoorsy, super-active foodie. I love blogging about my travel and food adventures: http://thehungrywanderingpenguin.com/

I've traveled to 50+ countries. My favorite part is meeting the locals and immersing myself into their culture. And of course tasting the local food--I'll try everything at least once (scorpions and guinea pigs included)!! I've done everything from hiking the "W" in Patagonia to riding in a hot air balloon over Cairo during sunrise. Still on my list are Antarctica and outer space! Aside from traveling, I love to cook and bake, especially for other people--my turducken is pretty delish! Sadly though, after moving to SF the size of my kitchen is so small I can't even fit my cookie sheet in the oven. :(

I love being outdoors--everything from the beach to hiking/backpacking. I am very active and have often been referred to as the energizer bunny. I kickbox, play volleyball, do crossfit, etc. I also love to dance my face off.

I love life and am a true optimist. I believe in living every moment with no regrets. My family and friends are very important to me and I value these relationships.
What I’m doing with my life
Moved to the Bay three years ago after finishing my MBA. Been exploring this amazing city and all it has to offer ever since!

I am ambitious, driven, and very independent. I work hard, but play harder. Right now I am in the corporate world, but aspire to open my own business one day. I haven't figured out exactly what that will be yet, but once I do figure it out I'll let you know!
I’m really good at
Writing these online dating profiles... jk! I'm really good at cooking/baking and also making people smile!
The first things people usually notice about me
is my smile and positive attitude. Glass is always half full.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books: I love reading though I have to admit I don't do it enough. I read everything from trashy romance novels to self-help type books (i.e., Lean In, The Present Moment, etc.). I love to read cookbooks too... Yes cookbooks. :)

Favorite movies: Wedding Singer, Notebook, Borat, Love Actually, Zoolander, Inception, A Beautiful Mind. Not a fan of horror flicks!!

Favorite shows: 24 and anything else on the Food Network

Music: I like almost everything. The only thing I probably don't enjoy is country. Lately been really into Jazz and have fallen in love with SF Jazz! Great venue. I've always been a huge EDM fan (once you get me dancing I don't stop!). Some of my favorite DJ's include Afrojack, Kaskade, Paul Kalkbrenner, and Laidback Luke.

Food: I am a foodie so anything goes in this realm!! I love all cuisines (Japanese, Korean, Middle Eastern, Peruvian, etc.) and everything from hole-in-the-walls to nicer restaurants.
The six things I could never do without
Family and friends
Good food (I'm a HUGE foodie) and some good bourbon to go with it
A good workout
My kitchen gadgets--especially my waffle maker
Hot showers
Traveling the world
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where my next adventure will be...
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends on my mood... it can range from going out for dinner with friends, heading out to a club/bar or just staying in to veg out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm pretty open so just ask.
You should message me if
you think you can keep up with me!! People don't call me an energizer bunny for nothing!
