Hello! My name is Shannon. I am a full time Adoption Counselor at the animal shelter. I love my job. It is amazing that I can connect families with their new pet. I also love the fact that it is nowhere near a routine boring job. There is always new challenges and it always keeps me busy.
I am also starting to volunteer at the Education Center at the Topeka Zoo. As I'm typing this profile now, I have not started yet, but will soon. I will help educate people on the different animals.
I like to stay busy. It can be a good thing or it can be a bad thing. I find more enjoyment in doing activities than watching tv, relaxing, etc.
There are 2 things that people think of when they think of me...outdoors and live music.
I love camping, kayaking, float tripping (I've only been on one and I want to go on more), and hiking. I will go out of my way to find somewhere new to explore.
I would love to find a guy that would enjoy those kind of things with me.
Also I love live music. I love finding jam nights throughout the city for local bands and I also go to a lot of concerts.
I also have 3 dogs. A chocolate lab, a min pin mix, and a rat terrier. My chocolate lab joins me on a lot of my long hiking trips while the other 2 are more short trail walkers. Love getting them out for some exercise.
I hate routine. I need to try something new and I wish Kansas had more adventurous opportunities. This is why I hope to travel more.
If you're an adventurous, animal loving, music enthusiast guy I would love to hear from you.
I am level headed and try everything I can to remain open communication.
Movies: Pans Labyrinth, Jurassic Park, Life is Beautiful, A Beautiful Mind
Shows: Breaking Bad, Parks and Rec
Music: Love live music. I like 90s alternative, modern alternative, indie music, blues, bluegrass, folk, experimental
Food: I'm a carnivore.
Friends and family.
My good health
So many natural wonders to see in this world and I refuse to miss out on those. I work at a nonprofit so financially this is difficult, but I can be patient and continue saving.
Also, being adventurous will be a plus. :-)
