My self-summary
Words that can describe me would include loyal, trustworthy, confident, sincere, and empathetic. I am someone that keeps my cool and is laid back, but I am also very competitive and focused when there is something that I am aiming to accomplish. If it means getting a few laughs out of people, I can be a bit of a goof at times.

Things that I enjoy include Cincinnati Reds baseball and Ohio State Buckeyes football. I love playing baseball or softball whenever I get the chance and am always up for joining a recreational league, no matter what the sport. I also like to go hiking in some of the local parks around Columbus. Gallery Hop is always fun to go to at the beginning of the month. I am always up for anything that is an opportunity to challenge myself physically or to learn/experience something new.

An ideal relationship for me absolutely needs to have trust, openness, and the willingness to always continue to grow together. Finding someone who is open to new experiences is also important to me, as is someone who knows what they want out of life. Having a good sense of humor is always good, as some of the best times usually include laughter. A girl who would be a good match would be someone who is independent in the sense that they remain true to who they are and what they believe in and value. Maybe the most important thing I am looking for is someone who is looking for a fun, joyful, and loving relationship where both are equally as committed to one another.

I would say that I am a fairly easy person to talk to and I am always open to meeting new people and getting to know them, so don't be shy about sending me a message :-)
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I am working in the field of higher education. I recently finished my master's degree and am thinking of going back to school part-time for an MBA. I am very passionate about my job and working in education with students and working towards providing opportunities for students to be successful in life.

Outside of my career, I am always looking to take on projects or lessons to gain new skills or learn something new. I guess you could call me a sort of a perpetual learner. I enjoy constantly challenging myself and always need something that I am working towards. I am very driven and believe that there is always room to improve or learn something new. Because of this, I am always up for trying something at least once.
I’m really good at
Playing shortstop in baseball or softball. Overall, I would say that I can hold my own in most sports. I'm also known for playing a practical joke or two, but always in good taste and always making sure it involves people who can take it. Finally, I would say that I am good at understanding people.
The first things people usually notice about me
Good question... I've been told my smile and my hair before.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Call me odd, but I love reading "how-to" books. I also enjoy action, adventure, history, mystery books. Into the Wild is a good book, as is the novel of which Forrest Gump is based.

Movies: The Sandlot, Forrest Gump, Back to the Future, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Silver Linings Playbook, Dumb and Dumber, Inception, The Social Network

Music: I enjoy a wide variety of music and it really just depends on what I feel like listening to. But hands down, my favorite artist is Jack White.

Food: If it's edible, I'll try it at least once.... most of the time ;-) I'm always up for trying new kinds of foods and restaurants. I love grilling and take advantage of that anytime I get. The weirdest thing I want to try are oysters, don't ask me why.
Six things I could never do without
In no particular order:

1. The ability to be outdoors or in a park.
2. Baseball, specifically the Reds.
3. The opportunity to always learn.
4. My dog, Sophie.
5. Family, friends, and meaningful relationships in my life.
6. And yes... my iPhone.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My career, where my life is going, what I hope to accomplish, and hoping I find someone who is right for me to share my life with and the experiences that will come. I also try to stay up to date on current events and how it impacts the world socially. I find topics of psychology and sociology to be interesting.
On a typical Friday night I am
Spending time with friends or family... it really doesn't matter what we're doing. It can be having a conversation at a cafe or bar, catching a ballgame, or even just going on a hike.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been heartbroken and disappointed in past relationships, but yet I remain optimistic. If you want more details, you'll just have to message me.
