My self-summary
Cliff Notes version: I am passionate about the arts, an urban city girl, unconventional in my self-expression, sensual, a lover of nature, playful, and strong. I don't reply to long distance messages.

Want the unabridged version?
Are you sitting down? Comfy? Got a snack? Here we go:

If I had to pick one thing that defines me, it's my passion for the arts -- whether sculpted, danced, written, designed, acted, or any of a thousand other forms of expression. From klezmer to Korn, Rembrandt to Rothko, Metropolis to Memento, ballet to belly dance. Human creativity inspires and energizes me.

I'm a city girl. I don’t have a membership to REI. If someone of the manly persuasion invites me, I'll definitely go on walks, bicycle, or kayak, and it will be fun. But if I’m doing the choosing, it’ll be theater, live music, dance, or galleries. “Sports” to me means dancing in bare feet in my living room, or snorkeling with Humuhumunukunukuapua’a in turquoise waters. (So get over here and help me get some exercise!)

Maybe the next thing that defines this girl is my love of personal connection. I'm no loner. If you startle at being touched, you'll be a nervous wreck by the end of our first date. I want to live in that yin/yang balance/tension that defines male/female. I need the man I'm with to be affectionate and demonstrative. Engaged. Not shy. Enjoying flirty, light communication when we're apart. I want him to meet me half way emotionally - we each give as much as we get (hopefully... a lot!)

I love the natural world: botanical gardens, aquariums (Maui has the best!), even Reptile Expo - just to look. I own a few small birds that fly in an aviary on my back porch. It's where I take my morning coffee. My dream is to own an art gallery at a beach... Wow, to be surrounded by art and nature all at once!

I need to laugh and play. If you make me laugh out loud, I promise to return the favor.

As for the the entire catalog of desirable personality traits - kind, honest, generous - I don’t say this to be dismissive, but I'm taking those as a given for the decent people that you and I are. If the unique blend that makes me, well, ME appeals to you, let's talk.
What I’m doing with my life
I've been doing a lot of "This Old House" stuff to this duplex I own.

I design jewelry guaranteed to start a conversation when worn. My mermaid sculptures are a little manga and a little Tim Burton.

I'm loving the Dia de los Muertos trend - I make dolls that most people find more beautiful and celebratory, not as creepy as one might expect.
I’m really good at
Kissing it and making it better. Getting to the heart of the matter. Keeping my wits about me. Appreciating the authentic you.
The first things people usually notice about me
A tall redhead wearing geek-chic glasses and cowgirl boots? Nah, couldn't be that. ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books
I have a hard time settling down and reading. But just so I can weigh in with everyone else, recent books have included Life of Pi, Ahab's Wife, Water for Elephants, The Book of Secrets, and Time Traveler's Wife. There was a death in my circle of friends so I am now reading Elisabeth Kubler Ross's last book. I have Monoculture out, I really want to read it, but something always gets in the way. Instead of stacks of books, I enjoy films - documentaries these days. And I love NPR podcasts, especially "This American Life" and "Selected Shorts."

Movies
I have lost count how many times I have seen Fight Club. The Fall is the most visually stunning film I've ever seen. Cohen Bros or Gilliam (including Tideland, which NObody has seen.) The Talented Mr. Ripley had my heart pounding, Bladerunner, Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Memento. Iron Man - there, I said it. Don't judge me. District 9, 9, Nine, and Nine and a Half Weeks. (Now I'm just kidding around.) Princess Bride and Nightmare Before Christmas.
Lots of documentaries these days: Through the Gift Shop, Pina, Jiro Dreams Sushi, Marwencol, Food Inc, Botany of Desire, My Kid Could Paint That, Page 1/Inside the NY Times.

Shows
I don't watch much TV. I have a big ol' flatscreen for movies, but no networks in my house. I rent cable series after my friends vet them for me. Breaking Bad, wow, it's amazing how great this series is on so many levels. I used to like Downtown Abbey, but after the movie I rented last night, I can only think of it as Gosford Park 2.0. I started Deadwood, but got distracted, I want to pick that c%€<$&r back up.

Music
First a disclaimer: it's a music preference, not a lifestyle. OK? Here goes: I love hard rock and Electronic Dance Music. There's nothing like Nu Metal when I have to psyche myself into cleaning the house. Do I have tattoos and ride a Harley? No.
Same thing's true for electronic dance music: Glitch Mob, Skryllix - very energizing. (If I refused to spell a Deadmau5 with a 5, would that make me less of a hipster... or *more?*) Then indie danceable stuff like Franz Ferdinand, Metric...
The six things I could never do without
Art galleries - they energize me.
A body in which to dance.
Goodwill: the emotion and the thrift store.
My navaho silver bracelet
Eyeglasses
#6, Ummmm, toilet paper? No, wait, I know... iPhone!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why in the wide wide world do so many people post photos of themselves sitting in the driver's seat of their cars?
On a typical Friday night I am
...at a movie.
I also love to dance. I want to take classes in swing dance so I can get my rock-a-billie on. Quieter nights, I might find myself at a performance. Later, it's nice to end the evening at one of those bars with a fire pit, and some artfully-crafted old tequila... neat, please.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'd like to wear high heels more often.
I’m looking for
