I've lived in Nashville for about 15 years now. I came here for college and got a business degree. I briefly moved to Murfreesboro to get my Masters degree in psychology. I now live in Bellevue and work as a statistician in the health care field, which is about as interesting as it sounds.
My main hobby is swing dancing, especially lindy hop, charleston, blues, and balboa, and I go dancing almost every night of the week. I'm a big theatre fan and enjoy going to TPAC and other local shows. I'm also a bit of a movie buff and gamer, and I occasionally go to conventions.
What I’m doing with my life
I enjoy working where I do pretty well, so I intend to stay there
for a while. However, I'm hoping to venture into some other side
jobs, like adjunct teaching and getting involved in some
I’m really good at
I'd like to think that I'm a pretty decent dancer, although I'm not
as good as I'd like to be. I'm also pretty good at listening to
people and helping them work through their issues. I like hearing
other people's stories and knowing what's going on in their lives.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm pretty laid back. I can be comfortable around anyone,
regardless of how different they may be from me. I accept people as
they are, so it's rare for someone to do something that bothers me.
Truth be told, I'm also very quiet. I don't talk unless I really
have something to say, and that's how most people remember me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like movies of all kinds. I tend to gravitate towards science fiction, fantasy, thrillers, and the like, but a good movie is a good movie regardless of the genre. Some of my favorite movies are The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Requiem for a Dream, Moulin Rouge!, Office Space, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Big Fish, Stranger than Fiction, Donnie Darko, and pretty much all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.
My tastes in TV shows are similar to those of movies, although I prefer to wait until they come out on DVD or Netflix so I can marathon the series. My favorites are Lost, Game of Thrones, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly (pretty much everything by Joss Whedon), Doctor Who, Once Upon a Time, Breaking Bad, Orange Is the New Black, Scrubs, Lost Girl, and The Walking Dead.
Since I'll admit to being a gamer, I'll say that my favorite game series are Final Fantasy, Myst, Assassin's Creed, Deus Ex, Thief, BioShock, Metroid, and The Legend of Zelda.
I love spicy food. REALLY spicy food. I'll admit to being a picky eater, but I'm still willing to try new types of food.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order:
4. A warm shower
6. Awesome movies
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My friends and my future, especially the things I want to
accomplish in life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually dancing, but if there's no dance event going on, I'll
probably be hanging out with some friends.
