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.
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.
Some of my favorite moves are Stranger than Fiction, Immortal Beloved, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Silence of the Lambs, Star Wars, Singles, Up, Shrek, and Pretty in Pink.
As far as music goes I like a variety including One Republic, Killers, Mumford & Sons, Fun, Lumineers, R.E.M., Elvis Costello, No Doubt, Pearl Jam, Imagine Dragons, The Velvet Underground, Train, Tom Waits, U2, Violent Femmes, Coldplay, Bodeans, Cake, The Psychedelic Furs, Goo Goo Dolls, Travis, Fat Boy Slim, Echo & The Bunnymen, Colbie Caillat, The Cure, and Pink... to name a few.
For food, I enjoy spicy food, Thai, Indian, Burmese, Vietnamese, Peruvian, Mexican, as well as sushi and some good pasta, especially for carbo loading. I like to keep it interesting and love trying new places.
