I place a great deal of emphasis on having close relationships with my family and with friends. I am warm, caring, outgoing and generally take an optimistic approach toward life. While I'm ambitious, I think life needs to be approached with a sense of humor and a proper sense of perspective. I have an intellectual side, but I pride myself on still being fun and on approaching life as an adventure. I love travel, physical activity, socializing with friends, movies, music and books.
