HI! So, about me. I'm a PhD student at Mines, since August 2009 when I moved here from Albuquerque. I was there for 10 solid years after I moved from my home state of Indiana. I love Colorado and hope to stay here after I graduate. I'm proud of my midwestern roots, but I'll never move back to the 'burbs! I've got a little doggie, Roofis, who's a handful, but the sweetest guy once you see eye to eye. My passion outside of work is cycling. In particular I like to race road bikes and cross country mountain bikes. Being on my bike provides a progressive lifestyle that keeps me fit, sharp upstairs, and emotionally well balanced. I love it! I'm looking for a smart, stylish, and compassionate woman with a unique personality who's not afried to be herself. No couch potatoes please. I don't enjoy sitting in front of a television, sometimes I feel like this is unusual, I dunno. Although, I do enjoy a good footballl or basketball game with friends, or quality movies. When at home, though, I'd rather be in the kitchen, cooking, chatting, or enjoying a few beers. I also enjoy reading when I get my hands on a good book. Also, I'm hoping to explore what Denver has to offer more after I get outa Golden. So, if you enjoy fine food and culture we might be a good match.
