I have a boisterous laugh. On top of that, a sexy love affair with literature. I have yet to successfully complete a cartwheel, but I still try. I teach, cook, and nerd out on many subjects. Some of my great loves are hiking, the ocean (water in general), and a good story. I'm a sucker for a campfire or the stars. A favorite pastime is hugging trees - not in the metaphorical sense. My friends and family are amazing individuals, and I learn from them everyday. According to my friends, I "read like a pop up children's book." I strive to see the good in everyone, and believe in kindness and compassion. I want to see the world, but I also love time at home. I often travel for work, so I'm frequently in Boston.
