Hello out there. Between the username and the headline, you have two of the most important points about both myself and my ideal person: adventure and laughter. The other one is intelligence; there's nothing I love like a good conversation.
I'm a big sci fi nerd, so if you can debate the merits of various Doctors or weigh in on how Cylons are different from humans, that's a plus. My sense of humor tends to be dry and satirical (think Arrested Development), so if you love banter, I'm your girl.
I absolutely love food, and I'm up for trying (or cooking) anything, although baking is my strength.
While I love relaxing nights in, my true happy place is outdoors. I love mountains and forests in particular, but if there's a breeze, or grass, or especially a river (being a rafting guide is my other dream job, besides what I already do), I'm sold. Hiking, rafting, kayaking, camping, backpacking, etc. all obviously go with this. Travel is a big part of this as well. I've been all over Europe, and am absolutely hungry for more.
I'm also a big fan of dancing. Swing and Country (line dance and two step) are my specialties. I'd love to find someone who wants to go dancing with me.
While I've worked in many jobs, from Disneyland to advertising, I've settled into education as a career. I'm currently teaching a STEM Lab (science, tech, engineering, math) at a middle school near downtown LA, and I absolutely love it. I'm rewarded every day by my interactions with the kids.
If it sounds like we have these things in common, give me a shout. I'd probably love to hear from you, too. :)
