I like to exercise and try to keep fit, although I'd much rather be outdoor then in a gym. I consider myself an athlete at heart, mostly because I think I have the mentality behind it, and I'm always involved in some kind of sport. It would be fun to have a partner to exercise with, but not a necessity. I've gone through a series of unusual sports over the years: Springboard diving, motorcycle road racing (AFM), triathlons, roller derby. Right know, I'm on a few recreational,but still sort of competitive softball teams at this point
I have a great career that I love and that is a perfect fit for me. Because of it, I've collected a few interesting stories.
I like to do projects around the house, and I'm reasonably sufficient at home improvement. In addition to remodeling, I've made several of the pieces of furniture in use daily. A project is usually born from the idea that I have a specific thing I'm looking for and I can't find it, so I make it.
What's important to me? My amazing family, friends, traveling, humor, learning, exercise, personal responsibility, and sunny islands. Honesty, integrity and fairness are at my core. I try very hard to take the high road, and think I have a good moral compass. I've learned that you can't go around it, you have to go through it. I dislike drama.
Dating is fun, and some of the most hilarious stories can be had from dating, but I would like to find that one special person that shares my sense of humor, and with whom I can share life and love. I am a very independent and strong woman, but I really like knowing I have my best friend to come home to.
Hope that gives you some sense of me. I'm an open book, and happy to answer any questions.
Movies: Don't usually like block-busters. Anything off-beat with good characters is usually the direction I take, but I'm up for trying anything. As long as you set your expectations accordingly, right? Big fan of a few actors, so I'll always go to see what's new with them. Ex: Daniel Day Lewis.
Music: I'm eclectic. Mumford and Sons, Ray LaMontane, Dropkick Murphies, Billie Holiday, Avett Brothers, Pogues...
Favorite radio show: Wait, wait, don't tell me.
The health and well-being of my friends and family.
Work. (Boring, but true.)
