The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about travel, having a great time all the time, and spending time with friends and family. I love visiting new places, meeting new people, trying new things and being spontaneous. I'm also passionate about being active and planning activities for family and friends. I pride myself on being a loyal and dependable force in the lives of all those around me. I'm very passionate about making other people laugh and ensuring those around me are enjoying themselves. I am also passionate about enjoying all the Pacific Northwest has to offer!
I typically spend my leisure time
I love to travel and spend time with friends and family doing everything from watching sports (college football is my favorite- Go Cougs!) to taking my pup to the dog park. I enjoy being outdoors and keeping active as much as possible. I like to play soccer when I can and enjoy walking/running along the waterfront. As soon as it's warm enough I like to spend as much time on the water as possible. Hiking, photography and projects around the house are also things I enjoy to do with my time off.
The most influential person in my life has been
Honesty... If you have all the details you can usually reach some sort of consensus or compromise. I also would love to find someone who cracks me up, can laugh at himself, challenges me and is passionate about enjoying life and being a good person. I love a man that can make lemonade when life hands them lemons, ya know?!
The first thing people notice about me
My humor and sarcasm... whether they get it or not.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Water for Elephants- About a traveling circus during the depression. It had a wonderfully, tragic love story, but was also very informative about historical events. The author used a lot of nonfiction events mixed with fiction. It was beautiful, entertaining and tragic all at the same time. I laughed out loud, got angry, smiled and cried throughout this wonderful book!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My support system of family and friends
- My healthy body and strong, confident soul
- The opportunities I've had to see the world and learn about other cultures
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I'm sensitive and very compassionate. Also, even though my career choice might not reflect it very well- I'm ambitious, focused, intelligent and resourceful.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I believe there is a perfect movie line or music lyric for every situation in life! I'm an eternal optimist and I enjoy connecting with people. Sometimes I run pretty hard so I love my evenings in with a great flick to recharge my batteries. I love a good beer at a dive bar more than anything.
