I love my life, and love the community of friends that I have nurtured for myself here in Oakland. I am thus ready for the next step in my life, for someone to share, build, and grow with. Chicago is my hometown, and I have a lot of pride for my midwestern value system: I am a do-er, a hardworker, a loyal and nurturing person. I feel like I have a lot to give and a lot to share with the right person. I also am open to just connecting and having fun with others who share a life vision similar to my own: those who love fresh air, good food, and passionate conversation..
