My self-summary
I am a woman consumed by the joy of experiencing all life has to offer. I've learned that happiness doesn't happen to you, it's something you choose each day. I approach each day with gratitude and one hell of a sense of humor. What I love to create camp, hike, travel, scuba dive, surf, and cook. I love eating out and movies too of course, but I'd prefer to find some adventure. At times these adventures turn in to unlikely mishaps (I once got impaled by my van and I have a rocking scar to prove it) and those are the best learning moments.
It's not uncommon to find me out and about in a costume of some sort. Normal is just setting on a dryer.

I'm a seeker and love to learn about myself and others.
I aspire to find a relationship with authentic communication and joyful curiosity. I want to find someone who loves to learn about life and themselves as much as I do. I'm independent and can take care of myself, it's part of what I love about camping.

My approach to life:
If you want it - go for it
If it fights back - let go
Say yes as much as possible - but stay true to oneself

I am probably looking for the same things most people on here are - a partner in life. I'm not going to force it, of course. I've also learned to let go of the laundry list of traits or "features" in someone. I do have core values that are important for me to share; chooses to find happiness, a seeker who wants to learn and grow, sense of adventure, curiosity, and wonder, knows their own boundaries and expresses them.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a professional problem solver. I started out in non-profit, moved to event production and now I work for a well known tech start-up developing implementation and adoption plans. I love my job, seriously, I love what I do every day and it's made me a very happy person. It was a long road to get there and I'm grateful.

So that’s my work life, but that’s just one slice of the pie. I’m a hard core foodie. I love dining out; fine dining is great, but so is a hole in the wall with killer food. I also love to cook and love it even more when I’m cooking for someone else. Long term life dream is to go to culinary school.
I’m really good at
Pushing my boundaries and communicating.

I fancy myself a zombie apocalypse survivalist.

I can totally get along for a week of camping with no power or running water. I made a swamp cooler out of a Home Depot bucket once and I'm damn proud of it. Trust me, if you get bitten by a zombie, as much as I may love you, I won't hesitate to cap your ass for the good of all humanity.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm effervescent and full of enthusiasm for almost any topic of conversation that comes my way. And if I think you're clever, you'll see my face brighten with a smile that my friends say lights up the room.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Franny and Zoey, Dune, Bell Jar, World War Z, Wool Series, Hitchhikers Guide, Dune.

I love going to the movies and my background is in theatre, so I love musicals.

Music - I'll listen to just about anything and would love to go see more live shows and be exposed to more fabulous music. Introduce me to my next favorite artist and I'll buy us tickets to their next local show.
The six things I could never do without
1. Gratitude
2. Reading - I'm partial to Audiobooks
3. How excited my dog is when I walk into the house at the end of the day
4. The intimacy of sex - because it can express the intellectual, emotional and spiritual connection between us, without a word
5. The loyalty and love of my friends - they give as good as they get
6. The moment on the playa when I feel fully me, no judgment and no need to hide
I spend a lot of time thinking about
About the community that's flourished around me since moving to San Francisco. It's so unique and special and beyond what I could have imagined (reminding me yet again that the universe can offer things beyond my dreams).

and this: "I used to say "if you take care of me, I'll take care of you".

Now I say "I will take care of me for you, if you will take care of you for me"

If this speaks to you, jump right down to the bottom and message me...
On a typical Friday night I am
Going out and meeting new people. Cocktails, movies, art or the awesome new thing you just suggested I try.

Going to the mountains, hiking and working on things around the property.
You should message me if
you are self-aware... and not finished. You've spent plenty of time having fun and learning what you want. Now you know what you want, and look forward to finding it.
