I'm a digital communications designer who has worked in every imaginable environment from owning my own business to Fortune 500. I'm always designing or creating something - whether its in the garden, on the computer, or in the kitchen. I'm a book worm, learning to play the banjo, a drummer who contra and swing dances, and a continuously rotation slew of interests that include travel, psychology, educational technology, social media, folk music, and genealogy. I love to cook and am always trying to recreate various international food stuffs that I encounter or hear about. I'm the kind of person that likes exploring, is quite comfortable doing it at my own pace and that likes making strangers smile. I'm very friendly and talkative when I'm not cocooning - I've been called a "gregarious hermit." I would probably be a guest - and as such, I'd be quiet, gone quite a lot during the day and vegging out at night, off exploring various venues like museums, music, shops, galleries, etc. I'd probably try to shop nearby and cook when I could, since I tend to prefer my food unprocessed and healthy. I'm very much an open book and a curious soul so I'm totally intrigued by the idea of travel and meeting people but I'm also totally cool being in my own world and space, often preferring it.
