My self-summary
I follow my heart. Make art, music, food. Find meaning in the details and in the big picture. Third wave feminist. Laugh till I cry on a good day. Milk it. Make YOLO cry.

I may have been called the white girl Beyoncé.
What I’m doing with my life
Only things that I love and am passionate about:
I'm a writer and a musician (ukulele, vocals, and the meanest kazoo you've ever heard! The shittiest piano player you've ever heard--seriously, I only use that beast for writing music).
I sing in a band (quirky, campy, theatrical torch songs infused with soul, blues, cabaret, throaty vocals, horns).
I'm completing my hours to be a Pilates instructor.
I have an overdeveloped sense of wanderlust, and love to try new things. I make stuff, like costumes, paintings, and weird impossible projects that become possible through doing them. Does that make sense? I can explain...
Basically, I'm doing things that make me a happier, better person so I can change the world when I grow up.
I’m really good at
Going deep. I crave intimacy.
Singing in the shower
Laughing (either loudly with my mouth open or quietly with my hands covering my mouth and tears everywhere...usually uncontrollably)
Being the best aunt ever.
Learning new things
Remembering dialog from movies and song lyrics
Inventing breakfast food
Collecting shiny objects
Parallel parking
Forgetting people's names but remembering our conversations.
The first things people usually notice about me
My lips. They're pretty huge.
My giant heart.
Green eyes.
Super tall.
Goofy uncontrollable facial expressions that make it impossible for me to fool anyone.
Or if I'm meeting someone after performing... My PIPES!
The last guy I dated noticed my bodacious butt first, and my eyes second, closely followed by my great sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Friends and Family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next whimsical idea. Ask me about my Instagram project.

How to be my most authentic self and give the best to every situation.

Vandalizing Penske trucks to make them into Fenske trucks (I call it, operation Fenske the Penskes).

How to make the world a better place.

What am I going to write about?, how to get through awkward moments gracefully, end of the world mythologies, what to learn next.
On a typical Friday night I am
At band practice, out with my ladies, or at home relaxing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I secretly love tom jones.
You should message me if
You know how to treat a lady, are equally happy going on some hair-brained adventure or staying home and hanging out, you love to laugh, have your shit together, aren't afraid to let someone really know you.

you are anything like my first love, Indiana Jones.

Here's the deal: I'm looking for something extraordinary. A man who knows how to love a strong, quirky woman. A hopeful romantic with a wicked sense of humor.

Bonus points if you want to chop wood with your shirt off while I watch. Drool.
