My self-summary
I'm originally from California (a true Valley Girl, no less) and lived in New York City for almost 8 years. I came back to LA a few years ago. I love living on the Westside and also exploring downtown (both the artwalk and festivals and just walking around). I'm absolutely not sporty, but I do like outdoorsy things (canoeing, horse-back riding, hiking).

I love to travel and explore new places, far away and close by. I've been exploring LA all over again, some touristy things, some not. I love to just wander around with a camera and see what I see.

Things I like...
-beer more than wine
-backpacking hostels more than fancy hotels
-anything water related (swimming, canoeing, rowing)
-photography
-baseball (Let's Go Mets!)
-pubs or bars more than clubs
-small music venues more than arenas (although Aerosmith at Jones Beach was awesome and anything at the Bowl is great)

It's fun to get dressed up once in awhile and check out a new restaurant or go out on the town. But most of the time I like to relax and hang out in good company, preferably at a local bar or a friend's place.
What I’m doing with my life
I work at a university, swim, workout, enjoy time with friends and family, cheer on the Mets!, wander my awesome neighborhood, take photos, plan road trips and just enjoy it all!
I’m really good at
-procrastination
-walking through neighborhoods to explore all they have to offer
-traveling
-saving movies to my dvr (but I don't seem to watch them that much...)
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile?
I'm a little shy sometimes too, so maybe that.

music: Alice Russell, Shout Out Louds, Etta James, Lupe Fiasco, The 88, Tori Amos, Aerosmith, Of Monsters and Men, Blake Shelton, Guns N Roses...I'm sort of all over with music! And I love to shazam songs and find new artists that way.

On a typical Friday night I am
Working out and then maybe hanging out with my roommate. Sometimes dinner and/or drinks with friends or family. It just depends!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This is the internet...not much I'm going to admit to here.
