I consider myself pretty well traveled, and am thankful for the opportunities I've had to travel on the company dime. I am a lover of music, pretty much all kinds, other than country and most Hip-Hop. I have Pandora on virtually all the time. My most listened to stations are LCD Sound System, Florence + the Machine, Iggy Pop, the Pixies, and Arctic Monkeys to name a few.
I'm not really a sports fanatic other than Roller Derby. Don't get me wrong, I know how virtually all sports are played and the strategies employed, and going to live sporting events are pretty much always a good time. It's just that I can find much better things to do than watch football all day on Sunday.
I am domesticated and can cook, so you'll have to let my cook dinner for you some time... Beef Wellington you ask? Yes, that can happen. I have been on a healthy eating kick, nothing extreme, just working on better habits to shed the gut, and I have been making progress!! I can find something on any menu so I'm not picky about restaurants, but I do try to avoid fast food, Applebee's, Chili's, and other similar chains. I'm a big fan of Sushi and Pho, but my go to Asian food is Thai! Then again not much beats a med rare Rib-eye!! OK, I guess I shouldn't be writing this right before lunch ;)
My passion right now is being a Referee for the local Women's Roller Derby league. It is challenging, it gets me up off the couch and active, but it takes an awfully lot of my spare time. I am on the road quite a bit and I have traveled more this year for derby than work.
Things to know about me:
my own car
my own place
friends I would bend over backwards for
have the ability to make my friends laugh
family that lives far away
A Hopeful Romantic!

Roller Derby Referee
If you have any questions for me, all you have to do is ask.
First date would be something simple and open. A quick dinner after work, always with the options of a few drinks afterward, to keep good conversation going. Roller skating at Crystal Palace is also always a possibility.
