The one thing I am passionate about...
I work for an organization that is focused on leadership development, team building, interpersonal skills etc. I am passionate about my role as a consultant with them. I believe that everyone deserves the ability to learn, develop skills, appreciate differences and positively impact the environment in which they live and work. Efforts towards that goal will always get my passion and energy. I enjoy assisting organizations and other consultants to be more productive and successful.
I typically spend my leisure time
If I had a choice (with the weather and work) I would go hiking often. I enjoy my little in home gym. Sad but true I have Tivo. I enjoy movies, shopping (of course), going out to eat, but I also enjoy cooking, baking , etc.... I travel back and forth to Oregon and Colorado for my company. I go to California to visit my friends. And if I can get in an adventure or try something I haven't done before, I am generally open to that. I enjoy live sports, but I will watch them on TV. I enjoy plays (not found of ballet), restaurants on the water, bowling, playing pool (not that I am good at either) and tennis.
The most influential person in my life has been
That special combination that is rare to find. For me, it is a combination of fun, humor, warmth, intelligence, sincerity... I am looking for a man who is expressive, kind, teases, and has a little bit of competitive spirit... someone who makes life even more fun and interesting. A generous heart. (Tall works too. I seem to have a thing for basketball players - don't ask me why.)
The first thing people notice about me
Honestly, all of my friends are amazed at how much I laugh and smile. Don't get me wrong, I have and enjoy my quiet moments, but I am energized around people and activities. My friends comment about how much I make them laugh and feel special.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I am reading a book called Garden Spells. My mom sent it to me and it seems to be about magic, whimsy and romance. I enjoy fantasy, fiction, mystery, romance... it just has to be an interesting or compelling story.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- The sun - when it appears. :)
- Health and happiness of myself, family, and friends.
- The opportunities I have both created and been given in my life.

A little more about me
It is important that they are willing to take time to get to know me and vice versa. I am a very passionate and spontaneous person - but when something or someone is important to me, I think that patience is a key.
