My self-summary
I believe anything worth doing is worth doing fully. No matter what happens in life there is something to learn from it and a positive perspective to be gained. Learning is a passion of mine and I am always reading books, blogs or articles and striking up conversations with people to expand my knowledge and understanding of other cultures. Along the way I have been blessed with the opportunities to spend time in Israel and trek in the Himalayas of Nepal.

Two of my favorite quotes are:
"Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair." ~ Khalil Gibran

"The universe is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper." ~ Eden Phillpotts

Most of the year I play league soccer weekly. Other things I like to do include whitewater rafting, camping, snowboarding, snowmobiling, hiking, board games, listening to live music and spending time with friends. I would like to get back into playing tennis and indoor rock climbing.

I am down-to-earth, fun-loving, and intelligent.
What I’m doing with my life
Taking each day as it comes, doing my best to make the most of the moments I have and enjoying those around me while they are here. After more than 15 years working in high-tech and non-profit organizations, I have gone back to college with the goal of becoming a Special Education teacher. Along the way I am spending as much time socializing with friends as possible and playing soccer.
I’m really good at
- soccer
- remembering lyrics to songs
- getting somewhere without GPS
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile, my rear and my eyes...not necessarily in this order.

The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
- Why people do the things they do
- How businesses in different industries run from an operations perspective
- Travel destinations, especially Costa Rica
- Things I want to accomplish in my life
On a typical Friday night I am
thinking about what I will be doing during the upcoming weekend or sleeping as I recover from a busy week
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once got pulled up from the audience to dance on stage with the characters from Sesame Street.
