I'm really laid-back and easy-going and don't take myself too seriously - typical Californian, I guess. I joke around a lot and try to enjoy myself no matter what I'm doing, whether I'm out for a big night or staying in alone. I'm lucky enough to have spent an amazing year abroad and can't wait to get back to traveling!
I get really, really excited about food. I can think of few things I appreciate more than a really good meal shared between friends. I love learning to cook new things and trying new foods and usually my meals are a priority in my traveling (and in my daily life).
I'm also really into sharing stories and hearing people's perspectives, even on the most mundane things. If you're passionate about something, I want to hear about it. If you know about something I don't, teach me about it. I want to learn a little bit about everything.
I know there is strength in the differences between us, and I know there is comfort where we overlap.
