CA born and raised, I'm an adventurer and an extrovert. Probably because I am an only child, I love to be with friends and meet new people, but I also make sure to give myself a fair amount of alone time - at least two free nights a week. I'm up for anything, but if I have the choice, give me a board game night or a sports bar over a club any day. In most situations, I prefer to park far away than circle endlessly for a parking spot. 60% of my clothes are hand-me-downs from friends and cousins.
In my group, I'm known for being a reliable workout buddy, winning shuffleboard partner, trivia maven, and food enthusiast. I have fleeting obsessions with books and songs, but I retain a lifelong love for men's tennis. For the second year, I'm trying my hand at fantasy football. All I can say is, thank God I am not playing for money!
There are endless simple pleasures in life, but I'm a sucker for a smooth iced mocha, hammocks, fresh plants that I can't kill, exploring a new city on foot, a cold honey wheat beer on a hot day, and a well-crafted pun.

Favorite Food: I will try any food once, but my go-to's lately have been sushi, pho, shawarma, and thin crust pizza. I eat my own cooking more than anything and have been dabbling lately in lamb.
Anything more you'd like to know, please ask! Sorry for talking about myself ad nauseum, but hopefully you found something that you can relate to. :)
