The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about cinema, music, art, teaching, literature, writing, running, hiking, food, concerts, travel, songwriting, learning new things and exploring the world in all its facets. I especially like Oscar-caliber films and could discuss them indefinitely. I value proper grammar and intellectual conversation. I'm a creative, idealistic, optimistic, driven person. Admittedly, I have a quirky sense of humor. I'm kind of an introvert (I'm an INFJ on Myers-Briggs) so I enjoy one-on-one conversation. I believe in working hard for the things we want in life. I love that my job is consistently challenging and rewarding.
I typically spend my leisure time
Watching and discussing movies, listening to music, running, reading, hiking, writing, playing music, going to concerts, learning to cook, dining out and painting.
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm looking for someone to dine out with, go on a run or hike, talk about books and film. Share cooking tips and favorite bands. Someone who can discuss faith, psychology, philosophy, politics, arts, really anything amiably. Share creative activities with one another (whatever you're into painting, cooking, writing, photography, etc.). I like to challenge myself physically, mentally and creatively. I like someone who is nurturing, can be both pragmatic and a dreamer, someone who is well-spoken and well-read and thrives on learning new things.
The first thing people notice about me
People say I'm nice and friendly, positive and intelligent.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I love to read. My most recent reads in the last few months are: Sherlock Holmes (A Study in Scarlet and The Sign of the Four), The Beautiful and Damned, Gone Girl, The Fault In Our Stars, The Boys in the Boat and A Thousand Splendid Summers.
