My self-summary
I believe that sometimes the most ordinary things could be made extraordinary simply by doing them with the right person. I'm looking for a partner in crime to share new adventures!

Just back from Peru and looking forward to summer's arrival in Columbus for festival and patio season!

What makes me tick? Curiosity; thinking outside the box; doing what people say cannot be done; changing the world through continuous improvement. I enjoy sarcasm, a good laugh and most importantly a mental challenge. I believe that career, goals and ambition are important. I put a lot of energy into my job, but I recognize there is more to it than that and I try to find the right balance.

I have a great appreciation for life and try to make the best of every day. I have an insatiable curiosity to explore new places, to try new things and to meet new people. This has led me to travel all across the globe- climbing the Great Wall in China; skydiving over Las Vegas; riding camels in Dubai; whitewater rafting in Switzerland -with plenty more to do on the “bucket list”. Recent adventures have included Australia, Iceland, and a few Caribbean Islands. Local adventures should not be overlooked – Columbus is an ever evolving city with new restaurants, markets and events popping up all the time.

What's the best "new" thing you've done lately?
What I’m doing with my life
- Creating memorable experiences with family and friends
- Volunteering for causes I care about
- Traveling as much as possible
- Trying to figure out what comes next
I’m really good at
- Planning vacations
- Mentoring LSS students & newly minted engineers about careers
- Cooking (or so I'm told)
- Solving Problems (it's my job, so that helps)
- Spending fall weekends watching football
- Spontaneous new adventures locally (restaurants, activities, shows, bands, etc.)
- Planning thoughtful gifts for others
- Attending charity events
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a sarcastic yet playful nature. Witty banter is much appreciated.
I know quite a bit about a lot of random subjects
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food- Self proclaimed foodie with a love for new local restaurants. Have been known to follow up a 3-star Michelin with a great street vendor the next day. Up for trying almost anything. Seafood, Italian, Sushi and Thai are some of my favorites.

Movies - love action & adventure with an occasional comedy thrown in. Looking forward to the new Captain America and X-men movies this summer.

Books- I’m an avid reader and have no doubt supported the Amazon stock price through my Kindle purchases. I enjoy business psychology oriented books (Gladwell, Levitt, etc.) and political non-fiction (Berry, Rollins, Metzler) as well as multiple internet articles on business, finance, investing, political, economic, pop culture, and travel stuff.

Last book (as recommended by Bill Gates) was Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh. It had me laughing so hard my stomach hurt!
The six things I could never do without
Good food & whiskey (or wine)
A purpose
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...way too much. I need to learn how to turn my brain off more.

Things I prefer to think about include where my next vacation will be and how to make anything better
On a typical Friday night I am
grabbing a drink and/or dinner with a few friends out on a patio and enjoying the fact that winter is over!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
...plenty once I get to know someone, not so much on this site
You should message me if
You've ever had a crazy travel adventure and you want to share the story.

You've got drive, focus and a passion for life!
