I am an extreme extrovert - I get a kick out of socializing, and meeting new people excites me. I am a ball of energy and I am looking for people to keep up with me (yes that is a challenge).
I invented the portmanteau "sunbrella", which is unfortunately less elegant than the already existing term (parasol).
Damn you, parasol!!!
In my free time, I fence competitively, sing my heart out, practice Spanish with anyone who's willing, bicycle as much as possible, and generally look for fun adventures.
Other things I love include beer and bourbon, board games, hiking, listening, finding patterns.
