I am passionate about life in general. My specific passions change, but the themes are pretty consistent: experiencing nature, exercising, expressing myself creatively, traveling, leaving a positive impact on the world, and always learning and growing in the process.
A passport is an essential in my possessions. I have lived abroad and love the adventure of exploring different cultures. I am as comfortable hanging out in a third world country and camping in the woods (real camping -- without bathrooms or electricity) as I am attending a black tie ball, though I look better in the latter!
I am an extrovert and love to be with people but can be content hanging at home with my two pups. I feel lucky that my family members are my friends and my friends are like family.
Being active is mandatory to maintain balance in my life. I do yoga, bike, run and swim, and when I get the chance I like to kayak, ski and scuba dive.
I am always open to new adventures. It's what keeps life exciting.
I am an optimist and know that even in the hard blows that life tends to deal, there is goodness to be found.
