I'm laughing as I write this, but that's no surprise as my friends will attest that I laugh a lot. OK...so quick summary or 'me in five words: teacher, friend, adventurous-coward, and volunteer. Read on for just a little more about me:
I'm a researcher and a teacher. Although I'm originally from the Northeast, I've lived all over the US (or near water all over the US) and now I work and teach locally.
I'm an adventurous coward-I'll try anything even when I know it terrifies me, but I'm easier to convince when I'm not doing it alone. I'm often quiet, but I love spending time with my friends and my family, exploring, running, listening to music. I've run a handful of half-marathons in the last couple years as well as several shorter races, almost always with friends (at least at the start and finish).
I like to travel-both for work and pleasure, can't live without music, and love the beach and anything having to do with being on water in any form.
I'm a volunteer. I like to do things for others and with others.
That's the short-short-story version of me. Drop me a note if you'd like to learn more.
