I value self-awareness and experience. I express gratitude everyday. I'm an activist, friend, runner, introvert, extrovert, adventurer, self-proclaimed comedian. I have strong convictions but don't take myself too seriously. I like to hike & camp, and see live music, and drink IPAs. Balance is important, and a true, open-minded perspective is the key to happiness. I love California but also miss my family on the East Coast. I appreciate those who can offer new ideas and good conversation. I have a lot to learn and am looking for someone who can enlighten me, but someone who simultaneously knows how to relax and take life as it comes.
