Though I grew up in a small suburb of the Twin Cities, I decided early on that I wanted to visit and live all over the world. Thus far, I have had the privilege of living in Boston, NYC, Atlanta, Vienna, London, and Chicago. I have also traveled Europe extensively.
What I’m up to usually depends on what city I’m in/what season it is, but there are a few things that I enjoy in general: staying active, going out with friends and socializing, perfecting my cooking skills, and checking out the local art scene.
In Spring/Summer, I prefer to be out on the water. Be it Lake Michigan or Lake Minnetonka, as long as there are boats and beers, I am a happy girl!
In Fall/Winter, I prefer to be out west in the Rockies. Skiing (alpine and cc) and boarding are my favorite sports, and I try my best to get out there several times a season. There is nothing better than breathing in the cold fresh air at the top of a mountain, wearing yourself out on the way down, and then enjoying a little apres ski action at the end of the day! I'm currently in the process of buying my 2012-2013 Epic Pass!
Music is also a huge part of my life--I try to check out as many festivals and live shows as I can. I'm always looking for new band recs and concert partners! :) Currently, I'm listening to: Neon Indian, YACHT, Purity Ring, Big Gigantic, Grimes, Mr. Little Jeans, Youth Lagoon, M83, The XX, Pretty Lights, Lykke Li, Sleigh Bells, Justice, Crystal Castles, Miike Snow, Sigur Ros, Trampled by Turtles, The Lumineers, Mumford and Sons, and Bob Dylan.
I would say a few words that describe me are: open, honest, adventurous, intellectual, free-spirit, and a tad feisty. I am looking for someone with a similar zest for life.
