ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

I look at life as an opportunity to learn and grow and over the years I've learned and grown - a lot! Many years ago I read a book by bell hooks in which she borrowed this quote to define love: “Love is the will to extend one's self for the purpose of nurturing one's own or another's spiritual growth..." Since then, it's been my own personal barometer for evaluating relationships, both friendships and romantic, because it resonated with my own belief that the people I surround myself with should be as devoted to my own learning and growing as I am to theirs.

I've spent the last ten years devoted to a career in education and I see my work less as a job and more as fulfilling my passion. I love what I do and enjoy sharing that passion with others. Because I spend most of my day with young people, I tend to be a bit of a kid at heart and enjoy the Children's Museum just as much as the Museum of Fine Arts. I used to write - a lot - and although I'm not as involved in that scene anymore, I still have a deep appreciation for the arts and anything and anyone creative.

I was born and raised in Southern California and though I doubt I'll ever move back, that will always be home. Before moving to Houston I spent several years in New Orleans and definitely left a part of my heart there as well. I've been in Houston for a while now and I'm still waiting for it to capture my heart.

As I've grown older, I've come to appreciate different things in relationship and what I'm most interested in now is connecting with someone who I can share my interests with and who can introduce me to theirs, someone who enjoys going out just as much as staying in, and who doesn't take themselves too seriously. Bonus points for Lakers, Saints, or UCLA fans. :)

For fun:

Exploring new spots. Getting out of the city. Long drives to random places. Variety is key - I'm just as comfortable in a museum as in a dark and gritty pool hall. I love the Lakers & Saints. I love them loudly and loyally... even when they're losing

Favorite hot spots:

Any place with good margaritas, good music, or good poetry. I travel to the East Coast often and back home to Cali and New Orleans... I try to get out of Houston at least once every few months.

Favorite things:

books. things from my travels. HGTV. law and order and the 100s of shows like it. maps. good music. spoken word. debates. long drives. good conversation. teaching. community building.

Last read:

Brief and Wondrous life of Oscar Wao by Diaz. Caramelo by Sandra Cisneros, and Krik?Krak! by Edwidge Danticat. a lot of poetry. Kid books. the IKEA catalog. education articles. lesson plans. I'm not picky... I'll read any and everything.
