I am a person who is endlessly delighted by small things, and deeply grateful for big things. I am fascinated by conversation (could talk/listen for hours), and excited by adventures. I love hikes, or just walks around the neighborhood.
I am enthusiastic and filled with joy. I have also tasted sadness and had wake up calls to remind me of how precious life is. My goal is to always remember that and to not take life for granted.
Things that are really important to me are: spirituality, nature/the environment, transformation, family, friends, etc.
I have such deep love for my family and for my many friends - some of whom live here in California, and many of whom live elsewhere. I grew up in Indiana, Illinois, and Iowa. I also lived in Kansas a few years ago. I love the Midwest deeply, and California feels like home right now.
I work at a vegan, organic, mostly raw food restaurant that is a school of transformation. I am constantly inspired and challenged (in a good way) there. I feel so grateful for my job.
My idea for a first date is something simple like meeting for a cup of tea or a bite to eat. Ideally, it would be something to get enough of an impression of someone to decide if he/I/we want to get to know each other more.
