The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about personal growth, and being able to enjoy the small things in life. Some of those, in no particular order, include: volunteering, being outdoors, laughing and being a goofball, political banter, farmers markets, spontaneous road trips, and any dish made with coconuts. I'm also passionate about being close to my friends/family, and look forward to having a family of my own one day.

A little more about me
After being raised in Europe (don't worry, I'm a US citizen), I spent my 20s in NYC. I've since lived in several states and especially enjoyed California, but moved back east to be closer to family, but not too close ;) My job allows me to work full-time from home(I consult in the IT/web field and do tech support for a holistic physician), so I enjoy having the freedom to move around. I also volunteer a fair amount, especially for environmental causes, I've previously lived on an eco-village and helped start an urban farm. As you can probably guess from the above, I'm not big on material things, and sometimes refer to myself as a minimalist.
