My self-summary
I like to laugh. I used to read a lot of books. I read magazines more now. I'm really happy when I end the day with a good beer. I'm not as militant about needing coffee in the morning as I used to be.

Every four years, I become a somewhat (not "American") football enthusiast--hoping that this is the year an African team takes home the trophy. Rightfully striking Brazilian workers notwithstanding, the final standings for me are a bit of a bummer. I like the Germans and all, but really, if the Dutch can rustle up at least a couple brown folks for their teams. The Germans can too, otherwise I still think they're stuck on the the Master Race theory. This is hard for me to write. Berlin is one of my favorite cities.

So listen, I spend most of my life dumbing myself down for people, so I try to avoid doing so when engaging in optional social activities. If you don't like having to think too hard when engaging with potential sexual conquests, I may not be the lady for you, love.
What I’m doing with my life
Arts education, story-telling, physical theatre, performance art.
I’m really good at
Writing, performance, being an educator, cooking.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm chocolate brown.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love Thai food. Even bad Thai food. Magazines: Harper's (not Bazaar), Vanity Fair, The Atlantic Monthly, The New Yorker...

Music? Anything from Fela, to Patsy Cline, to that awesome jam band that's still unsigned (for me right now that's The Grownup Noise).
The six things I could never do without
This week this question annoys me. I'm going to rephrase it: Six things that make my world a happier place:

1) Clean Air
2) Love
3) Volleyball
4) Respect
5) The Humanities
6) Food
On a typical Friday night I am
Recovering from the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm deaf in one ear.

You're comfortable around smart, confident women.
