My self-summary
A snapshot...

MIND: I really value a sense of humour, a sense of adventure and a curious, intellectual mind - I love learning, traveling and good conversation. I'm interested in almost everything - politics, arts, culture, science, history, health...hence my small addiction to CBC :). I am a teacher, though currently my classroom is the outdoors!

BODY: I love to get into the nooks and crannies of the world, and so lead a pretty active lifestyle - hiking, running, cycling, yoga, soccer, exploring, and just feeling good in my skin. Paddling and swimming in lakes are summer favourites – of all the places I’ve been in the world, Northern Ontario is still the place to be in August. Hoping to meet someone who’ll add a bit of zest to the habits of healthy, active living – and who is ready, or at least willing, for a backcountry trip!

SPIRIT: Got some! I am passionate and engaged in my life. Deliberate living is important to me…always trying to make the most of life. Getting outside is invigorating, and staying in with some good company, a book or a movie is rejuvenating - and can be an adventure in itself. My bicycle is pure freedom…so hopefully you appreciate two wheels sometimes. I value generosity, courage, imagination, music, integrity and humour. I am very honest and genuine, sometimes serious, but always ready to laugh!
What I’m doing with my life
I am always on the lookout for new/unique experiences, insight, good times and good people ;) I love time spent in nature, but i also absolutely love cities too and have lived downtown toronto for most of the last 10 years (when not out and about checking out the rest of the world, which I have done a lot of!). Just over a year ago my experience, skills, knowledge and passion merged into a fab new job working full time in outdoor education.
