I play guitar sometimes, and I love to hike and be outside. Amelie was one of my favorite movies. I'm a very positive person who sings a lot and talks in funny voices sometimes. I have a 14-year-old daughter, and a very large cat named Chester. I live in northern California, and am very interested in "green living." I have done some traveling over the years, including a trip to Guatemala to learn Spanish. this summer (2013), I went to France for two weeks. I like to be comfortable when traveling, but not spend too much money. I don't buy a lot of things, I'd rather have memorable experiences. I love nature - hiking, boating, star gazing - as well as eating and drinking good things.
