I’m a PR professional, fitness fanatic, thrill-seeker and optimist. A woman who values education, public service, a never-ending curiosity about the world around her and the ability to laugh at one’s self. I'm passionate about progressive politics, great literature, independent film, theatre and travel.
While I'll always be a gym rat, I also love being outdoors and hiking whenever I can. I recently climbed Mt. Baldy (11 miles and 3900 ft elevation gain) and Mt. Wilson (14 miles and 3600 ft elevation gain) for the first time; San Gorgonio is next on my list! Two new hobbies are rock climbing and skiing; I can’t wait to get to Mammoth this season.
I love learning new things and am always open to new experiences. Undergrad degrees in political science and international relations and a master’s program in journalism nurtured my deep passion for social justice issues and current events. I spent a year living in the UK (I’m a huge Anglophile!) and worked at a hostel for asylum seekers from North Africa and the Balkans. I most definitely have the travel bug and currently have a fascination with Africa… I got to spend two weeks in South Africa in 2010, and trips to Tanzania, Zanzibar and Madagascar are on the bucket list.
So who am I looking for? A partner in crime. An intellectual equal who is driven, articulate and well-read. A man who takes as much care with his fitness and the way he looks as he expects the woman in his life to. A man who has an appreciation for the more refined things in life, including good food and wine. A man who will hold the door for me but will also do some ogling as he does so. A man who demonstrates and values integrity, follow through, kindness, a sense of adventure, curiosity about the world around him, ability to work as a team, intelligence, a good sense of humor and, of course, chemistry with me when we meet.
