I am a teacher, coach, and competitive athlete. I enjoy running, road biking, lifting, triathlon, and swimming (when I am too injured to do my favorites). Recently, I have taken a liking to hiking, especially when it involves travel and exploring nature. I am an avid reader; I can easily escape into a book for hours, and I like visiting book stores and coffee shops. As a teen, I fancied myself to be a goth, and my students would say I retain some of that lifestyle. I get all of my news and some of my views from NPR. I like art and music and I guess I am a bit of a foodie, too.
I am interested in, and attracted to, intelligent, open-minded, active people. Although I log quite a few hours in the gym myself, I am aware that there is more to life than sweaty benches and mirrored walls.
