My self-summary
I am a very active person who loves being outdoors. I have become an avid runner, so you can often find me out for a run in the park or on a trail somewhere in this beautiful area we live in.

My friends would describe me as a sweet, honest, and reliable person with a wild side.

Traveling is another one of my loves, especially to explore different cultures, architecture, and beautiful landscapes. I like trying new things and I am always looking for a fun adventure! In a trip to Croatia I had an interesting experience while rowing to a nearby island that involved a locked motor, and a broken ore! At least I was able to laugh about it then and now; and it helped to make an unforgettable trip!

I am from the Midwest originally, Madison, WI. I feel that family is important; I am very close with my family even though they live far away. I have made some wonderful friends here, though, they mean a lot to me because they are my second family.

I moved to San Francisco over eleven years ago and I love it! I still have many places in California I would love to visit as well. It would be fun to have someone to play tourist with me! I enjoy going wine tasting, hiking, camping, and kayaking, to name a few.

Since I am an active person I am looking for someone who leads an active lifestyle as well. It would be great to find someone I could go for a run in the park with or travel to a new destination. Chemistry of course is important, I feel I am a passionate person and I would like to share that with someone who has a similar zest for life! I also like to laugh, so finding somebody who can make me laugh and knows how to just enjoy the moment means a lot.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an Urban Planner and I love my job, it is challenging but always interesting. Beyond work I love living life and exploring, I am always up for trying something new. I have added yoga to my life about 3 years ago to help create a healthy balance.

Some of my favorite local places are: Golden Gate Park, Mt. Tam, Rodeo Beach, Marin Headlands, Lands End, Academy of Sciences, de Young Museum, Nopalito, Inner Fog Wine Bar, and Arizmendi. I enjoy long weekend trips to Yosemite and Healdsburg. I like to go out with my friends to more low-key laid back type of bars, or wine bars. My favorite vacation was hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

It varies, out for a drink with friends, enjoying a great meal out, watching a movie, or just relaxing at home getting ready for a long Saturday morning run.
