My self-summary
Things that I enjoy are few and simple; eating well, traveling, cooking, surf/snowboarding and most importantly spending time with family and friends. I'm happy where I am in life but having someone special to celebrate the joys of life is also important. Also cooking for one isn't fun.

I know we're all here for similar reasons so if you want to learn more about each other let's get coffee and trade our stories.
What I’m doing with my life
I love my career as a government attorney. Every day I have the opportunity to help people; but I value most is a good work/life balance.

Out of the office I enjoying volunteering, specifically mentoring youth. I’ve been a youth mentor for an Action Sports Mentorship program (surfing and snowboarding) for the past 4 years. Shameless plug visit www.stoked.org

Sense of humor
People with positive attitude
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to "eat well and laugh often".

I’ve been fortunate to have traveled a lot and love learning about new cultures through their food (I’ve eaten Cuy and drank Airag in my travels). When I’m not able to travel I try to find new neighborhoods to explore and restaurants to eat, yes the YELP App is well used on my phone.
On a typical Friday night I am
Meeting friends for drinks and dinner.

When I'm not out, closing the week with Bikram yoga and clearing out my Netflix queue.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Yes, I'm a foodtographer. In my defense, my friends are too...
You should message me if
If you light up a room when you walk in, love to laugh, smile and have a great sense of humor. I’m looking to find someone who has a positive attitude about life, appreciates volunteerism and adventure.
