I am originally from Michigan and relocated to California for graduate school, pursuing my masters in Art Therapy and Marriage and Family Therapy. I'm still adjusting to the california lifestyle, gaining a more relaxed mentality. Music . . .hmmmm. . .I'm pretty open to different genres, but stay clear of country and hardcore screamer metal. Definitely a retro girl at heart, loving classic 60's and 70's rock with a twist of 80's pop.
I consider myself an empathic person, which motivates my desire to help people and better understand them. I love art, and merging it with psychology has only deepened my appreciation for creative expression. Honestly, I would love to make a genuine connection with an independent freethinker.
Although I should spend more time painting, I spend a lot of my free time running through the city. Running has become a big part of my life in the past year, and after finishing my first marathon this past March, I've realized how it's much more than just a physical activity. Nothing beats the open road.
I'm going to be real for a minute, and admit to feeling jaded by this whole online dating thing. I'm looking for someone to explore the city with, a man with a sense of adventure and strong integrity. Confidence is key. *Note: confidence is not synonymous for arrogance, and overcompensating is a huge turnoff.
