My self-summary
I originally hail from Milwaukee, but have been in the Twin Cities for the past 10 years or so. I love all that the Cities have to offer, except winter which is sometimes a bit long for my tastes. Because I'm a transplant, none of my family lives here so my friends are pretty much my family. I love spending time with them as well as their kids, trying everything I can at least once. Some of my favorite activities include live theater or music, local restaurants, playing games or poker, or really just anything that can get me out of the house. Don't get me wrong a nice night in is lovely and very needed after a stressful week.

I work in schools which provides me the opportunity to partake in one if my passions as often as money allows - travel. True I often travel to see my family, but I also love going and experiencing new places and cultures. My most surreal trip so far was to China.

I am looking for someone that can make me laugh, is willing to love my friends like their own, and is just as comfortable going to the theater as they are sitting in a dive bar playing trivia.

I work in elementary schools with special education students. When I am not working I love to travel. This summer I've traveled to 9 new countries including an amazing adventure to Africa.

Making people feel comfortable and welcome. Random fact - I'm also a pretty mean knitter and a fairly good poker player :)

My family, friends, books, entertainment (theater, movies, tv, podcasts), travel, and my glasses/contacts.

On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends - playing games, going out to the theater or a movie, dinner or just having a quiet night at someone's home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One of my most favorite things to do is climb into a freshly laundered bed. I just love the feeling and smell of the crisp sheets.
