I am an optimistic, energetic, open-minded, caring, and passionate person. I work hard, but I also love what I do. My friends have confirmed I have a good sense of humor, which sometimes leans toward the dry side. I can also appreciate good "old fashioned" humor - you know, the kind that often ends in a loud groan and smiling eye roll? I enjoy learning about new things and look forward to what you'll teach me. I love nature and animals. Pets of all types are great. I am comfortable sharing my opinion when appropriate, but I'm also a great listener. I've been a life-long Phillies fan, but I'm not the kind who has to watch every game or who quotes stats all the time.
