The one thing I am passionate about...
I am a travel fanatic. My routine is to take quick, action-packed weekend trips once a month and a major overseas trip once a year. I am trying to scale back on the travel as I just built a home for myself and am establishing a community. To overcome the passage of time, I work to stay busy and lead the most exciting life I can handle. The sting of growing older is eased when you can look back and say, �Hey � at least I did a lot.� I subscribe to the �Try Something Knew Once a Month� philosophy. I have always been an avid reader and lately most of my books are audiobooks.
I typically spend my leisure time
Social Gatherings (code for Happy Hours), Theater, Museum Events, Go Karting, Improv Theater, Lessons, Exercise, Reading, Travel. Petting random dogs while on walks through nice neighborhoods.
The most influential person in my life has been
Ideal match: active, social, confident, career focused brain. I appreciate fun but also seek people with a head on their shoulders.

The three things which I am most thankful for
- My happy childhood and my family who continues to support me
- That I was raised in the US and have had so many opportunities. I just came back from abroad and have realized that I would likely not be in this position if I grew up anywhere else.
- My current life - Through a series of Fortunate Events (bonus points for recognizing that reference) I am achieving my dreams
