I can be silly and am usually completely relaxed and easy-going, but I can also focus and be serious when it’s time for that. In some ways I'm very spontaneous, and in others, I am a thorough planner.
Travel is a huge priority in my life. I am constantly thinking about where I can/should/want to go and how I can get there. I have been to most states and several countries. It's pretty much a basic need for me, whether a weekend road trip an hour away or going to Europe for two weeks with a train pass and no plans.
I am originally from southern CA, but have also lived in Washington and Hungary. I love the Pacific NW and am happy to be back.
I love nature and being outdoors. Running, hiking, camping, and exploring with my camera all make me happy. If I must workout indoors, it's usually yoga or TRX. I am a huge baseball fan and I’m also really into some college sports – especially women’s soccer and basketball.
I'm a "lifelong-learner": I love listening to podcasts like Radiolab and 99% Invisible, I think TED talks are awesome, sometimes I do online university courses for fun, and I will actually open a dictionary when I read a word I don’t know.
Divorced, but no kids.
