I work to live not live to work but I happened to fall into a job that I actually like at an organization working to improve the foster care system here in America. I love being in a job that, in some small way, is making a difference.
Outside of work, I live a very full and busy life. I love to travel. Being near the ocean. Dancing. People watching. Live music. Exploring. Long conversations. Good beer. Cider. Tea and coffee shops. Animals. Taking pictures. Cheese. The Daily Show. Being in nature. Camping. Orca whales. Olives. Laughing. Wandering around farmer’s markets. Indian food. Volunteering. Meeting new people. Writing. Soccer. the Sounders. Adding and crossing things off my bucket list. Rafting. Kayaking. Having random adventures.
I’m not a fan of jerks. Needles. Glass walkways. Intolerance. Seafood. Scary movies. People who can’t laugh at themselves.
I'm looking for a friend, lover, partner-someone to share in life's big adventures, little moments, and the ups, downs and everywhere in betweens.
I love my life, but I’m at the stage where I’m ready to meet that someone. And while I love meeting new people, let’s be real-I am looking for a relationship not just casual dating so I hope you're at that stage in your life too :)
