I am a very easy-going girl who is ambitious, optimistic, and up for adventure. I'm a bit extroverted, a little sassy, occasionally geeky, and the funny kid at times. I love to paint and create. I am currently working on my masters at DePaul in Secondary Visual Art Education to become a high school art teacher and help kids fall in love with art. When I'm not working or studying, I spend a lot of my time exploring the city. I love to travel. I'm a big foodie. I love cooking it, eating it, learning about it, and so forth. This goes for wine as well. I love to be surrounded by good friends and family, but can be found very often curled up by myself in the back of a coffee shop reading. I guess I read quite a bit. I love the outdoors so I am always up for camping, bike rides, and such. It helps that my dog Edie loves to go to the dog park and play outside. That's about enough I suppose.
