I try to be very active, and hope to find someone who likes to be active as well and do things together.
I travel to Europe in spurts for work which I'm very thankful for, and then try to travel often within the U.S. to visit friends when I'm not traveling for work. Experiencing different cultures and ways of life is so refreshing and important to me.
My best friends will tell you I am a good listener, perceptive and empathetic. I think communication and honesty are extremely important for any relationship. The person I am looking for is family oriented, appreciates her friendships, and above anything else is a genuinely nice person.
I try to treat everyone I meet with as much respect as possible. I want to be able to have fun with someone, the girl I want to be with would also be my best friend. I think laughing is so important. I love to be around someone who can joke around and have fun no matter the situation or environment.
My favorite things to do are run, play sand volleyball. and most recently - rock climbing. I have been a part of a rock climbing gym for several months and it is awesome. I also just went skydiving for the first time. It is an experience I would highly recommend!
I also like relaxing and making food/enjoying some wine. I pretend to know what I'm talking about with wine but really have no idea. So for me its just fun and also delicious. I've been to wine country in California which is so beautiful now my next hope is to go to the wineries throughout Italy. I also like going out and finding random, good places to eat. I think its fun to be able to cook and to go out. Maybe I just like to eat a lot, which is true!
I went to Ohio State and graduated in 2008 with a Marketing degree. I don't really do Marketing now but I have a great job that has opened up a world of opportunities to me. In about 30 years I will be President of Ohio State. Believe me, the current one is well aware. Career is important to me and I constantly seek motivation from all sources to keep me driven. But I believe life should be enjoyed and I will never let my career dominate my life or interfere with a relationship. Most importantly, I believe life should be lived with passion. Getting excited about things is what life is all about.
