I am brand new to the Las Vegas area and looking to get to know people. I have an MFA in theater and I worked professionally for several years in that field before finding my true calling as an elementary school teacher. I love kids and enjoy seeing the world through their eyes. I enjoy being active, creative, and fostering enthusiasm for life. I believe in having high expectations but also accepting that I am full of contradictions.I am an introvert who loves hanging out with extroverts. I value in depth conversations and quality time and I believe people can have differing opinions and still respect each other. I enjoy being social in small groups and really appreciate it when people listen to me. I know who I am and and I believe in helping people be their best selves.I am well read and enjoy learning news things all the time. I read at least two or three books a month and I love good writing, be it non-fiction or fiction. I love good stories and enjoy learning about how the world works.I love movies and good tv shows and love deconstructing what I watch with those who understand that we can all like different things. I love eating good food and baking. I make the best chocolate chip cookies ever. No joke. I love music, dancing, yoga, kayaking, cooking, going to concerts, hiking, and finding balance in all I do.I am looking for someone I have a spark with, someone who gets my sense of humor, and someone who is kind to the waitstaff at restaurants.
