My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in Philadelphia and returned after attending undergrad and graduate school at a small liberal arts school outside of NYC. I think Philly is the best of city and small town living combined into one. I am not an avid sports fan but I always love to support the hometown teams, and can turn into a typical Philly Fan very quickly. I am passionate about my work directing and producing children's theatre. The relationships I forge with my actors/students is rewarding and fulfilling--I am looking for someone who would value and respect this and wants to be included to some degree in this meaningful part of my life.

I love interesting and adventurous travel—especially involving water sports, camping, and places I’ve never seen before--though I don’t often have the opportunity. I like to travel with friends and plan on continuing to do so, but I’d love to meet someone who wants to explore the world with me.

I adore: Going to the movies (especially the Ritz). Wearing black. Quoting movies. Being silly (but only if I am comfortable). My theatre students. Scarves. Reality TV that revolves around art, fashion, kids, and cooking (and, apparently, you can add online dating to this list--catfish is my new favorite reality show). Travel. Board and card games. Kids, their amazing ideas, and their perspective on life. Dancing (especially ballet). The idea of cooking. My sleepover camp (I try to visit at least once a year). Musical theatre.

Some random (but important) facts: I’m scared of heights. In high school I worked at the Pennsylvania School for the Deaf—as a result I sometimes sign what I am saying or reading without noticing that I am doing so. I have an interesting, loving, and supportive family, but I have also created my own family of friends—and I couldn’t imagine life without them. I strive for a healthier lifestyle. Sometimes, I talk to myself—probably because I am an only child.

My friends would say that I am loyal, kind-hearted, warm, generous, passionate, and loving. I would say that I am hard-working, loyal, sensitive, passionate, smart, and motivated.

(And, yes, I do know that ‘little’ is spelled with two ‘T’s. Silly character restriction.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in children’s theatre as the Associate Artistic Director of a youth and teen theatre company. In addition to the administrative duties that go along with that, I direct, design, choreograph, and teach for the company as well as several schools in the Philadelphia area. I also lifeguard and teach swimming on the side.

As you can guess, I work a lot because it’s important to me to be able to do what I love. For now, this is the way to achieve that. I hope to be able to go back to graduate school for costume design so that I can ultimately focus my work entirely in the theatre.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Working with children/teenagers. Time management. Details.

List making.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. theatre
2. books
3. singing in the shower
4. mexican food
5. some sort of beverage--preferably water, tea, diet coke, or coffee
6. my sewing machine

(In choosing these I am acting upon the assumption that people cannot live a fulfilling life without family/friends, air, and water.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My (theatre) students. How to live my life to the fullest and avoid repeating mistakes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually catching up on sleep, tv, and “me” time. I don’t work a typical 9-5er—I teach most Saturday mornings so staying out late on Fridays is not always a great option for me. My favorite nights out involve good food, good beer, and an activity.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I was in a very long off and on relationship that started in high school. It ended almost two years ago, and I had been reluctant to try online dating, but I’m ready now.

I find Jersey Shore hilarious.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You actually read my profile (which I suppose is pointless to write as if you didn't, you probably wouldn't have read this either).

You want to meet a warm, genuine person.

You think all people should be afforded the rights granted "men" in our constitution.

You don't (over)use text lingo.

You like bowling, beer, and Indian food.

Most importantly--I'm looking for someone that matches or surpasses me intellectually. If you haven't graduated college for no good reason then I'm probably not interested. I'm not a snob and I realize college isn't for everyone--everyone has their own path and I'm interested in more than the mainstream road. Don't misunderstand me--there are many good reasons not to go to college--money, non-colegiate opportunities, volunteering, the arts--but if you didn't go to college because you were too busy playing video games and you don't have plans to change that, or you don't value education as a concept then we're not a match.

Likewise, if you can't be bothered to type out a full word out and feel that as an adult it is acceptable on a dating site to replace words with letters we are not likely going to hit it off--first impressions, people. Save that for texting your friends.
