Sun chaser. Story-teller. Instigator. Mediator. Therapist to many, confessor to few. I express myself best with photography. Color lights me up. I'm an emotional dresser-you really do get what you see (that day, at least). Tomboy by nature, girly by choice.
I fancy myself a chef. I'm a foodie that forgets to eat. I cackle. Dive bars are my downfall - How can you not love them? Jukeboxes, cheap drinks and great people watching! I want nothing more than to be a minimalist but sentimental value always outweighs necessity. I love dogs, but don't have one of my own... yet. If this dating thing doesn't work out, but you are in need of a dog walker, I'm available!
I love the influence and power of words, and never fail to analyze and explicate. I have a weakness for red wine, nutella and the National Geographic channel. I admire anyone that can play music. I love how it can take you from one mood to another, feed a feeling, or take you back in time. Happy. Loud. Gregarious. Outgoing, with sudden bouts of shyness that defy logic. I am a natural born teacher and an intuitive learner. I love getting lost: Finding my way in a new place excites me. Time lost does not always equal time wasted.
Daily necessities = coffee and laughter. Luckily, my job provides an abundance of the two. I have an eccentric mother and a hilarious father - thanks to both for passing me the same genes.
My life is blessed. I feel I owe the world so much. So I am repaying the world by helping one person (or animal) as I am able.
Wit, intelligence and a winning smile get me every time. I'm looking for a travel partner. If you're willing to join me on a hike, the dance floor (even if you can't dance) and in the kitchen, you're likely to win my affections.
