Me in a nutshell? Well, I am a native Californian in my "early" 30's (will absolutely share age 1-on-1, just no need to broadcast to perfect strangers. Lol.). I was born and raised in sunny SoCal, the OC to be exact, and NO, life here is NOT like the old tv show by that name. I've been married and that's enough on that. ;-)
Even though I'm from SoCal, my heart belongs to NorCal, in particular, the Bay Area. The Bay is my personal haven and my happy place. It is where I go when I want to recharge and it's always first on my list anytime I want a little escape. I am working on making my dream come true and finally becoming a local in 2012. Looking for a job up in the Valley or East Bay so I can make my move ASAP! If anyone has any advice or connections, I'm all ears. I'm on (website hidden) if anyone wants to make a professional connection.
I grew up being the baby girl in a family full of older male cousins so I'm a bit of a tomboy, definitely girly, but tomboyish in many of my interests. I love sports. I grew up in the Gretsky, Montana, and Showtime Lakers era. I love the L.A. Lakers (yes, a true fan so that means I don't care for Boston), L.A. Kings & SJ Sharks (I know, weird), Anaheim Angels & SF Giants (I hate the Dodgers), and last but MOST importantly, the San Francisco 49ers!!!! And you got it, I despise the Raiders :-) I also love watching or going to MotoX events. It's a family thing. We have a second generation competing now.
I listen to all types of music, from Glenn Miller to Metallica to Tupac to Blake Shelton, which, by the way, I adore. I'm obsessed with Bradley Cooper, just thought I'd share that! I also love musical theater (Les Mis, Phantom, and Cats are some of my favorites) and Cirque du Soleil. I love old movies (all time favorite is Gone With the Wind). I'm also a swing dancer, lindy hopper, salsa dance and I'm into all things rockabilly (clothes, look, cars, music). I would be equally content going to a classic car show as I would be going to a natural history museum. I'm pretty well-rounded like that.
I'll be focusing my future travel plans to the Bay Area/Silicon Valley to help me in my efforts of relocating like I mentioned. Hoping to meet potential employers and get a feel for different neighborhoods to move to. Any insight I can get from Bay Area hosts I end up visiting will be GREATLY appreciated. Hoping to make great acquaintances, or better yet, friendships for when I become your neighbor!
If there is anything else you'd like to know, just ask. Looking forward to meeting soon!
