The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about music and art - any way I can express myself. I play flute and saxophone, I blow glass, and make a variety of types of papercraft. I also enjoy supporting other artists - live music is great, as are street fairs!
I typically spend my leisure time
In my spare time, I garden (I have a huge container garden on my patio of edibles and decorative plants), I play video games (Wii, PS3, and PC games), and I do the NYT Crossword. I also love photography (Nikon D40 with several lenses), and I combine this with my gardening skills in a gardening blog. I also love to cook, especially with the bounty from my garden!
The most influential person in my life has been
I want to meet someone for casual dating that could potentially become serious, that I can share things with - great movies, a good laugh with friends, single malt scotch...the basics :) Someone with a sense of humor, who loves going on an adventure, but also loves a good night of board games.
The first thing people notice about me
My self confidence, and my ability to make the best of and contribute to any environment that I am in.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I recently finished "Falling Leaves: The Memoir of an Unwanted Chinese Daughter", which aside from the obvious based on the title, was fascinating because of the author's optimism while growing up in a time of war and strife for the Chinese.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am thankful for my friends and family.
- I am thankful for the variety of culture and activities in the Bay Area.
- I am thankful for my education and confidence.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
This is a silly question. But I'm pretty funny, given the chance :)

A little more about me
I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, so I'm a big Steelers and Pens fan. I still miss it. California seems to have a lot more adventure in store for me though, and I love it! I'm half Scottish, a quarter Irish, and a quarter German. My family knows how to eat and drink well :)I also embrace my Scorpio-ness - I am loyal and passionate in every aspect.
