I lived in Spain after college and have traveled in Western Europe, Mexico, and in 2013 I went to Hong Kong and Macau. I would love to travel through Central and South America, but am up for wherever, whenever.
I am active, but not an athlete: mostly just walking or jogging. I also do Pilates. I also ride my bike to work and always, always choose the stairs. No really- always.
I like to spend my money on experiences rather than things, and like to spend time outdoors and with friends. I love live music and sporting events. I spent way too much time watching the World Cup and the best birthday present I have ever received was tickets to a Timbers game.
It is really important to me that my partner be interested in world issues and other cultures and experiences. I teach in a Spanish Immersion program at an elementary school and am passionate about equity and social justice. Over the years I have become more involved with my school district in these areas and have open conversations about race daily. Obviously I have unpacked my knapsack of White Privilege. (Bonus points if you know what the hell I am referring to.)
I am divorced and have a son. I have full custody. I could write a telenovela about my 7 1/2 year marriage and might some day...
The story can be summarized easily, so if you are interested I can fill you in on the highlights. It is rare that I ever mention my ex, so don't count on me to pry about any of yours. If there is something you want to know, we can talk, but I really like to think that painful things continue to hurt you the more you relive them through endless analysis. I don't need to think about him anymore. I prefer to think of other men as themselves and not just simply a version of "not him". Trust me- I already know you are better. Don't worry about it.
