I've traveled to 50+ countries. My favorite part is meeting the locals and immersing myself into their culture. And of course tasting the local food--I'll try everything at least once (scorpions and guinea pigs included)!! I've done everything from hiking the "W" in Patagonia to riding in a hot air balloon over Cairo during sunrise. Still on my list are Antarctica and outer space! Aside from traveling, I love to cook and bake, especially for other people--my turducken is pretty delish! Sadly though, after moving to SF the size of my kitchen is so small I can't even fit my cookie sheet in the oven. :(
I love being outdoors--everything from the beach to hiking/backpacking. I am very active and have often been referred to as the energizer bunny. I kickbox, play volleyball, do crossfit, etc. I also love to dance my face off.
I love life and am a true optimist. I believe in living every moment with no regrets. My family and friends are very important to me and I value these relationships.
I am ambitious, driven, and very independent. I work hard, but play harder. Right now I am in the corporate world, but aspire to open my own business one day. I haven't figured out exactly what that will be yet, but once I do figure it out I'll let you know!
Favorite movies: Wedding Singer, Notebook, Borat, Love Actually, Zoolander, Inception, A Beautiful Mind. Not a fan of horror flicks!!
Favorite shows: 24 and anything else on the Food Network
Music: I like almost everything. The only thing I probably don't enjoy is country. Lately been really into Jazz and have fallen in love with SF Jazz! Great venue. I've always been a huge EDM fan (once you get me dancing I don't stop!). Some of my favorite DJ's include Afrojack, Kaskade, Paul Kalkbrenner, and Laidback Luke.
Food: I am a foodie so anything goes in this realm!! I love all cuisines (Japanese, Korean, Middle Eastern, Peruvian, etc.) and everything from hole-in-the-walls to nicer restaurants.
Good food (I'm a HUGE foodie) and some good bourbon to go with it
A good workout
My kitchen gadgets--especially my waffle maker
Traveling the world
