Solar powered San Diego girl. I spent most of my 20s living abroad teaching, studying, exploring. Settled back in San Diego to be closer to family. I’m an amazing daughter, an adequate sibling, and a stellar friend. I enjoy trying new food and drinks (I am partial to citrusy IPAs). Food festivals, wandering around my neighborhood, getting lost in an audiobook and the drive in are some things I enjoy in my free time.

Looking for someone who is comfortable in a relationship where we each have our own interests. Obviously time spent together is important, but I hope that they have a life outside of me.
