The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about teaching and making the most of each day, finding ways to enjoy the little things like cooking a good meal, finding a great bottle of wine, or taking a hike. I'm also passionate about the people in my life. I've moved a lot, so I know how important it is to be intentional and I really value the people who have stayed in my life through thick and thin.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy a good meal--trying my hand at new recipes, revisiting old favorites, or sampling the culinary delights of a great restaurant. I also like spending time outside, going for walks and taking hikes, or snowshoeing in the winter. I'm also almost always up for a good performance--jazz, classical, and opera are my favorites.
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm looking for someone kind and driven, loves his family and friends, shares my faith, and is looking for a partner in life.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I've been on a World War II kick lately--good reads have included Monuments Men, The Lady in Gold, All the Light We Cannot See, After the Fire, and Lilac Girls. In a different vein, The Martian was also riveting. I'm reading Killer Angels now and quite enjoying it.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Friends who are like family
- The great outdoors
- Little joys in life
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I've put a lot of focus into my career, but people are extremely important to me. I strive for a good work-life balance, and while my career is demanding in many ways, I'm not one to always put career ahead of all other things.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I tend to be fairly open when meeting new people, but am guarded at first when it comes to romantic attachments. I'm not one to rush into something, but once I feel like I trust someone, I am fiercely loyal and committed, both in friendships and romantic relationships.
