The one thing I am passionate about...
My career. I am trying to make the world a better place by being open to new experiences and learning from them, I never want to stop learning and growing as a person. My life. I strive to live a happy satisfied life that contains elegance, beauty and lots and lots of good times and laughter. My friends and family because they are the most important. When you have nowhere to turn to, you always have them to give support and listen and love you without reserve. As I do for them when they need it.
I typically spend my leisure time
I love to read, I enjoy writing and I like spending time with my friends. I love puttering around my place and doing small DIY projects, slowly transforming it into my mid-century modern comfort zone and pleasure palace. Walks with my dog Jake are also important
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone who *gets* me and loves me for my quirks just as I love them for theirs. Someone who I can't wait to talk to and tell them all about the wonderful, funny, interesting things that have happened during the day. Someone who I wake up with a smile on my face just thinking about them.
The first thing people notice about me
My sense of humor and my style
The last book I read and enjoyed
His Dark Materials Trilogy by Phillip Pullman. I picked up the Golden Compass and was hooked I couldn't stop until I finished the entire trilogy. I thought the books were rich and inventive and I loved the fact he treated his child protagonists as fully realized complex characters.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Being able to work at a job that I find fulfillung and rewarding and knwoing my job makes a difference
- My zest for life and my spirit of adventure
- My friends and family
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That as much as I am an extrovert, being serenaded in public by anyone, singing waiters, strolling guitar players, mariachi bands, makes me squirm. I love live music but I don't want to be the one being sung to.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
That while I am a self described geek I hide it well. I love sci-fi and fantasy but I don't have a pocket protector. *grin* Also, love me, love my dog. If you aren't an animal person, we aren't going to get along.
