I consider myself to be genuine. I approach life with passion. I am not content to let opportunities pass me by. I believe if there are things you want to do in life, do them, experience them, make them happen, but understand that some may take more time than others. I create my own path in life. I grew up in New England, went to college in the mid west, and now live on the west coast. I enjoy my career and am lucky it allows me to be creative, every day has a different challenge. I am most comfortable when I'm doing something physical. I greatly value family and friendship. I love my nieces very much. Although I loved learning in school I think real education cannot be achieved in a classroom. When you travel you learn and experience on a more personal level.
