The one thing I am passionate about...
I desire to be a life-long learner. I am passionate about history, theology, linguistics, human nature, media ecology, and photography. While I love reading and deep conversation, I am also an athlete and live an active lifestyle, always seeking new experiences and new places to travel.
I typically spend my leisure time
I love staying active, whether that's going on a run or bike ride, lifting weights, snowboarding, wakeboarding, swimming, or playing water polo. I also am passionate about language, and find myself reading, writing, and enjoying deep conversations with friends. I have a growing appreciation for food as I enjoy learning the art of cooking.
The most influential person in my life has been
I seek a man who values the necessity of the gospel and who challenges me spiritually, physically, and intellectually. I hope to do the same for him in return.
The first thing people notice about me
People usually notice that I am a fairly serious person.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I recently finished reading "The Book Thief" by Marcus Zusak. It is a novel set in Nazi Germany, narrated through the eyes of the angel of death. I really enjoyed the word pictures and character development of characters. The plot was presented beautifully; I couldn't put it down.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- God has created me to glorify Him and enjoy Him forever
- My wonderful parents
- A diverse and unique creation to explore and study
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
While I initially appear serious, I love a good laugh, and have a compassionate side that manifests itself once I get to know someone.

A little more about me
I majored in French in college. Because it was a "small major," I was able to take myriad electives. I studied history, literature, sociology, and ended up with Psychology and Communication Studies minors. I loved school and hope to remain a lifelong learner, but am happy to be in the work force and be paid to work instead of the other way around.
