I live for spontaneity, friends, music, teaching, traveling, dressing up, being outdoors, camping, art, festivals, hiking, and dancing like no one is watching. I am a workaholic, geek, and party animal all in one. I love staying out but also love staying in. I love loud music but also love libraries and the smell of books My life has taught me endless valuable lessons and I continue to grow and learn everyday.
I have worked very hard to get where I am, but don't let the Ph.D. fool you, I definitely know how to have a good time. I am a college Professor and love every minute of it. Teaching is something that truly brings me happiness and I consider myself incredibly lucky to be able to do something I LOVE! It's safe to say I'm a bit of a nomad...thankfully, I have a job that allows this behavior! I have lived everywhere from Germany to Maui. Spent a month backpacking through Peru solo last summer, and just got back from a month in Europe with some of my closest friends. I can't wait for my next adventure!
I am looking for someone who can keep up with me, someone who is authentic, honest, hard working, trustworthy, and values family. Someone who is responsible but spontaneous and enjoys living in the NOW. Someone who knows when to be serious, but also knows when to laugh at themselves. Someone who is active, but also knows when to relax. Someone who understands the importance of balance in their life and most important, someone who values communication. Ideally you will share my love for music, traveling, adventure, being outdoors, and spending time with friends.
Oh yeah, I should probably mention that chemistry is big for me and has to be there from the very beginning.
