The one thing I am passionate about...
Exploring the world we live in with my partner, family, and good friends. I enjoy diversity, culture, and dressing up for an adventure in the city. However, a day spent in nature is my true rejuvination. On a day of relaxation, I cherish delving into conversations about the deeper mysteries of life.
I typically spend my leisure time
If I am given the opportunity to be outdoors, I will be found horseback riding, hiking, etc. Otherwise, you may find me reading, drawing, or catching up with friends.
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for someone with a genuinely kind and gentle soul.
The first thing people notice about me
I tend to smile frequently... I know one smile has made a difference in my day before so I try to pass that on.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I recently read The Alchemist as I heard that it was the type of book that could change your life. While I can't claim that any major transformations to my life views have changed upon finishing the book, I did enjoy the message it conveyed about the true purpose of our lives. It is a simple tale about a shepherd boy that is filled with symbolism that only you can interpret.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- having a loving, supportive, and healthy family
- meeting and maintaining friendships with a variety of caring and admirable people
- having the opportunity to learn so much at a young age through not only formal education but many experiences with travel
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I can be quiet in a group of people that I don't know very well. I wish people understood this as shyness instead of occasionally translating it as disinterest.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I am continuously seeking to gain a greater awareness of myself, human kind, and the world that we live in. My greatest fear is to begin living life in the "automatic mode" that I see so many people succumb to. I realize the great hardships that lay ahead in life and take these seriously. However, I also see the many joys and blessings available to us along this journey that can only be enhanced by sharing them with a life partner.
