The one thing I am passionate about...
My passions include traveling, helping others, meeting new people and experiencing new cultures. Some other important ones include all types of music, natural beauty, humor, and good food (and of course, beer!).
I typically spend my leisure time
I could travel all the time. However, when I can't travel I love to explore new restaurants and adventures around San Diego. If I am watching tv it is most likely on the food network (or No Reservations, I have a thing for Anthony Bourdain). I have brewed beer in the past and can't wait to get back into it. As much as I love cooking and eating, I exercise everyday and am really happy playing sports, hiking, biking, swimming, but most of all surfing and playing in the ocean. I also love taking off on random weekend adventures, camping and exploring new cities.
The most influential person in my life has been
Nice guys don't finish last in my book, I am really looking for a kind-hearted guy who is spontaneous and makes me laugh. Niceness aside, I do appreciate sarcasm and a little dark humor. If you enjoy craft beer, camping and having random adventures, some good times could be had ;)
The first thing people notice about me
I have been told, on occasion, that my smile and laugh are noticeable.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Sex Lives of Cannibals, by J.Maarten Troost. It is a non-fiction work written by a guy who lived on an atoll in the equatorial Pacific for 2 years. He is hilariously sarcastic. I thoroughly enjoy travel writing, done well.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I guess, of course, I would have to say I am most thankful for my wonderful family. Luckily enough, my parents are still ridiculously in love. I have a lovely niece and handsome nephew who I miss so much. They are definitely some important people to be thankful for.
- My life is devoid of tragedy and I am truly thankful for that.
- I still see the beauty in most things.

A little more about me
I am truly trying to live my life to the fullest and have some fun. I've been living in sunny San Diego for the past couple of years but am a Pacific Northwest girl at heart (Bellingham, Washington to be exact). My last big travel adventure was teaching in Seoul, South Korea at a private academy a couple years ago. I was bitten by the travel bug at a young age and have been chasing the feeling for years be it the Amazon in Brazil or teaching English in Barcelona, Spain. As much as I love traveling I am back in the city I love the most to find someone to share adventures and my life with me.
