Here I am. Not exactly sure how this will work, but what the heck? Very odd trying to "sell" myself, so I'll start with where I've been...
I have a degree in Bioenvironmental Science from Texas AM University. After graduating, I moved to Alaska to work for the National Marine Fisheries Science on the crab and fishing boats on the Bering Sea as a Fisheries Biologist. Very exciting and difficult life for 3 1/2 years. I learned a lot about living "alone" and being isolated from friends and family. The decision to quit was a bitter sweet one. Loved the freedom of working for 6 months a year, and the other 6 traveling around the world. But that lifestyle was quite difficult forever. Meet amazing people on a daily basis and never see them again. The amazing people already in your life were rarely seen. In the end, it was how much I missed my friends and family that brought me back home. Absolutely love my family. They are very important to me and I cherish how close we are.
Have since moved back to Texas and work at a nature park, promoting land, water, and energy conservation through education and recreation programs, such as hiking, kayaking, rafting and rock climbing. Completely love my job. Every day is a new challenge. The rewards of teaching adults and children the beauty of the outdoors is worth every hardship. And I get paid to play outdoors - cant beat that!! My goal is to open up my own non-profit for underprivileged kiddos and do environmental and cultural immersion with them. I plan to return to school and get my MBA in the near future. I know it's a pipe dream, but it's my dream.
I'm a very outdoorsy person and care very much about the environment. I would like to spend time with someone who is also very outdoorsy and outgoing, someone who doesn't mind trying new things, spontaneous or planned. And someone who loves dogs. My dog, Harvey, goes everywhere with me. I'm adventurous and will not back down to a challenge. Gotta keep life interesting!
I have a lot of energy, but also love to spend time watching movies or going to a quiet dinner and enjoying quality time together. Concerts and dancing are also high on my list to share with others. Traveling, too. Love traveling. I don't get to do it as much as I use to or would like to, but I hop on a flight every chance I get and would love to find someone who has the same passion for jumping into new cultures. I'm very honest and upfront. I say what I feel when I feel it. I also love to learn new things. I started playing the ukulele a few months back and have fallen in love with it. I play on a kickball team every week. It's so much fun!! All adults reminiscing back to their 3rd grade days of PE. I look forward to the games every week!
I would really like to spend time with a man who has goals, and gets inspired. He knows what he wants and he goes after it. I laugh at everything so I'd like someone who can laugh with me. There's a time and place to be serious, and the rest of the time should be enjoyed.
