I recently moved to Seattle from the southeast and am currently a digital artist & graphic designer living the Capital Hill area and working for one of the local TV stations. My move to Seattle was one in a few steps of crafting a new life for myself,
I started a new career, have started a new way of eating and striving to be healthy (72lbs down so far in 7 months!). I walk and bus everywhere and workout regularly.
Personally, I’m liberal, romantic, intelligent, literate, sensitive, humorous, an idealist, and most importantly to me: a dreamer. I am a people person and not only enjoy meeting and talking to people, but also making them laugh. I have a goofy streak a mile wide, but can at the same time be very passionate about topics that I hold dear to my heart (The Arts, Education, Science, and the rights of the oppressed). I have a love and zest of life that never burns out. I'm optimistic, spontaneous, and passionate. I’m slow to anger and quick to forgive.
I love trying new things and exploring everything this city has to offer. Every weekend I search groups and “The Stranger” page for new things to try. I love dancing and try to go to at last a few every month (Mercury, Couture, Re-Bar). I also am learning to swing dance at Century Ballroom.
I look for events that are new experiences (theater tours are awesome) or anything that supports or is involved with the arts and on the rare occasion all this does not fill up a weekend, I do photography (which is one of my passions).
There is so much more to me then I can express in these words on this website, but I hope this gives a hint of who I am as a person.

5 Dancing (at least I think so)
I am a passionate music addict and am almost never without headphones and a music playing, I feel it’s the soundtrack to my life. I can go from a nice Celtic jig, to a Punk song, to a Jazz piece and be as happy with each; there are areas I am particularly fond of.
1. College (R.E.M, 10,00 Maniacs, They Might Be Giants, Tori Amos)
2. Alternative (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Flogging Molly)
3. Hard Rock (Chevelle, Disturbed, Breaking Benjamin)
4. 1st wave (Depeche Mode, The Cure, Peter Murphy, Echo & The Bunnymen)
5. Musicals and Soundtracks (Hedwig, Little Shop of Horrors, Xanadu, Nightmare before Christmas)
3. Fiction & Fantasy
