My self-summary
My friends keep me around for my fierce sense of loyalty, intelligence, often dry sense of humor, and invites to my dinner parties. I am tight with my inner dork. I like to laugh, often at myself, sometimes at others. I love live music, meandering in museums, bantering over drinks, and meals with great company. On weekends, I love the feel of a snowboard strapped to my feet, boots on a trail or my toes in the sand, but am very happy on my yoga mat or spin bike during the week. I'm originally from Ohio and have pride in my roots. I recently moved back to LA after an 8 year stint in Washington DC. I have a great circle of friends that enriches my life even more. The only thing really missing is that special someone with all the inside jokes.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a physical therapist at a large, local hospital. I've also started teaching in the last few years, which has been really rewarding. I can honestly say I enjoy my work.
I’m really good at
Cooking and playing hostess, laughing, snowboarding, staying up past my bedtime...I could go on, but would rather leave some surprises.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile.

Six things I could never do without
Friends/family, music, my yoga mat, my iPhone, sunshine, and red wine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My constant inner commentary runs the gamut from the origin of life, to current events, to my relationships, to what I may make for dinner, to trips I want to take, to my next workout, to such vapid things as my next nail polish color...
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm not sure I have a typical Friday night. After a particularly grueling week, I may want to hibernate with a few select friends, but can usually be found out somewhere for dinner, drinks or a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
What fun would that be?
You should message me if
Some qualities I admire include: kindness, integrity, a sense of self and a sense of humor, intelligence, wit with a dash of sarcasm, and perhaps a small hint of vanity. I’m looking for someone who is also open to the possibility of developing a long-term relationship. I guess that's a starting point, but also know chemistry is never that black and white.
