My self-summary
Born and raised in the Bay. Unicorn!!! Lake Merritt is an awesome place to live. Farmer's Market rules, great restaurants and bars within walking distance, and great grocery stores nearby. My job demands a lot of heart and dedication, and I am lucky to love it. I am addicted to education and I love to push myself to learn new things about my work to make me an even more effective manager and mentor. I am a big time goofball. I believe laughter IS the best medicine, even at my own expense. :)
What I’m doing with my life
I enjoy my career, and I am very passionate about it. I work hard and play hard. I love checking out new hiking and walking trails. I enjoy exploring new restaurants and bars in the East Bay. Venturing out to SF more often these days. :)
I’m really good at
Crossword puzzles, driving (yes, driving), parking mojo, making delicious meals out of random ingredients in the fridge/pantry, drinking wine. My job.

Pan-searing steak and lamb. Cooking with vegetables. Steaming a PERFECT artichoke. Organizing evenings in or out with a group of goofball friends. Taking naps. Razzing my brothers. Getting splinters out. :/

Wheel of Fortune... I kick my Dad's butt every time, almost. :P Laughing at myself.

Naming smells. It's a gift.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile. I flash the pearly whites a lot. My quirky facial expressions.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Comedies rock my world, like Anchor Man, Dumb and Dumber, Step Brothers, Wedding Crashers. Matchstick Men ruled it. I love Julia Roberts, too. Totally into psychological thrillers: Fallen, Sixth Sense, etc. TV: Love my Netflix. Walking Dead has me like ooohhhh!

Music: Maroon 5, Rod Stewart always, some Hall and Oates, 2Pac, Iggy Azalea, country music... This list just gets more awkward.

Food: LOVE Mexican, Japanese, and Korean. I love most seafood, steak, and grilled lamb. LOVE basically all vegetables. They are a main staple in my diet. Total foodie over here. :)

Dislike: Black licorice and cooked carrots.
Would rather not drink beets. I will try anything twice!

Whiskey, some bourbon, red wine, sparkling water, watermelon agua fresca.
Six things I could never do without
1. Sunshine
2. Cooking
3. Naps. YES!
4. Family
5. Friends
6. Sparkling water
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Do NOT get a shopping cart at any of the following places: Coscto, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's... Even if your arm is trembling from heavy carrying basket/heavy items (no baskets at Costco).

IS there a Prince Charming out there for me? :0)
On a typical Friday night I am
Cooking at home, game night with the neighbors, or out and about with awesome friends causing trouble!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I write left-handed and play sports right-handed. It gets confusing.

I have to close my bedroom door at night to sleep. Monsters, you guys.
You should message me if
You are funny in an easy kind of way. You like all kinds of food. You can teach me about politics (maybe). You enjoy a nice glass of red wine and are not afraid of whiskey. C'mon.

Although I have enjoyed my time dating around, it's exhausting, to say the least. I hope to meet someone who is interested in more than the random 'Friday night date.' If this is you, shoot me a message. :)
The two of us
