In a nutshell, I am a glass-half-full, tree-hugging ninja, seeking a partner-in-crime.
What does that mean, exactly? Well, I am an optimist by nature, typically seeking to find the silver lining in any given situation, but can be a realist/pragmatist when needed.
I am a "tree-hugger" -- both figuratively and literally (Yes, I am known for spontaneously hugging trees when out and about -- see pic). I am a sustainability consultant, which means that I work with large corporations on being more environmentally and socially responsible. I love what I do -- it's so fulfilling to get paid to bring your passion to work everyday and further the causes you care so much about. In my efforts both inside and outside of the office, I try to promote awareness and action around environmentalism and social justice.
And the ninja part? Well, yes, I am keenly interested in Asian cultures and the martial arts, but really, that means that I am a very active, "carpe diem" kind of person. I'm constantly striving to go out and learn and experience new things. Whether traveling to exotic places faraway, immersing myself in new cultures, or just being a tourist in my own city. I'm really into the arts nature: independent music and film, a total foodie, and exploring the beauty of the outdoors on foot and on my beloved bicycle.
And lastly, the partner-in-crime part? Well, I learned long ago that “sharing is caring.” And I think life is just that much more fun when spent in good company. I am blessed with a great set of close friends and family, but am now looking for a trusty partner-in-crime to share my interests and life experiences with.
After spending my "formative years" in TX, NYC and Spain, my job has taken me to DC, TX, and now SF, though my travels and generally nomadic ways mean I'm frequently on the go. So, I'm always looking to meet cool new people in whatever area I may find myself in (just now relocated to the Bay Area, and am eager to meet cool new folks to show me around the Bay in all of its quirky glory. :)).
