I am professional and career-oriented. I love nature and the outdoors. My friends describe me as very independent, kind, unique, and sometimes a little paradoxical in my interests. I have a strong sense of ethics and consider myself a moderate independent agnostic, but everyone else seems to consider me a liberal :) I am passionate about music and listen to many diverse genres. I don't own a television. I am a geologist which means I may not be like other women you have met before! :) I am good with maps and I don't like shopping malls. I love camping, backpacking, crawling into holes in the ground, technical canyoneering, trail running, horse-back riding, volunteer work, and I am a mediocre but enthusiastic rockclimber. I would like to learn more outdoor fun so if your favorite isn't listed, I'm probably still game. I would like to learn how to salsa dance. I'm not perfect but I try to take care of myself. I know myself fairly well and I know what I want in my partner. This includes honesty, respect, friendship, maturity with a sense of humor, independence, and someone who is close to their family and friends.
