This is harder than I would have expected...I have many different
sides and it takes a while to get to know me. I'm a very authentic,
straight forward person and try to be mindful, compassionate and
conscious in my actions. I love to laugh, play and have fun, but
won't run when things get real. I enjoy unique characters and have
a pretty diverse social circle. I'm a very health conscious,
athletic person, but can also have fun and let loose. Healthy
lifestyle is important to me, but I'm not squeaky clean. I really
believe that "not too tight, not too loose" is the way to
I've travelled lots and would love to do more, but really enjoy
having a strong sense of community here at home.
I'm eccentric, but a weirdo in a good way. I hope! My interests are
perhaps considered alternative to some, but probably not to lots of
people on this site.
I think to sum it up I would say that I can comfortably eat at a 5
star restaurant or have a drink in a strip club.
Update: I've gone through a lot of changes recently and have
revised my lifestyle a bit. I really want more of a balance and to
spend more time just living. Taking more time with loved ones and
NATURE has become a priority! Don't want to feel like a hamster in
a wheel with work, work, work. I'd like to be less driven and sit
back and enjoy the ride.
What I’m doing with my life
I am focused on my career as a circus performer - aerialist/fire
dancer. I train very hard and so athleticism is a big part of my
life. I spend lots of time in rehearsal and creating new work. I
also teach pilates with a specialty in rehab and work in the Health
Food industry. It's important to me to feel a sense of service in
Update: taking some time off of my many jobs. Before you ask, I do
have space in my life for a relationship.
I’m really good at
cooking, organizing, hanging from the ceiling, spinning fire,
making people laugh, shaking my booty, being empathetic. Although
in all honesty, I feel that they are all a work in progress and so
I'd rather say "I'm working to be good at...". There's always so
much more to strive for.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmmm...you'll have to tell me... I would guess my eyes. I think I'm
sort of transparent and you can see that I'm a sensitive, warm
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love food from all cultures, but especially Japanese and Mediterranean. I'll try anything, but generally like to eat a super healthy diet. Even so, chicken wings sound great! Going out to dinner is one of my favourite things.
Music is the way to my heart. I enjoy many styles of music and I love to dance, but if I'm going to really shake it for hours, it will most likely be to psy-trance. For listening, I enjoy folk, rock, 80's new wave, electronica, drum and bass, jungle, dub step, classical and more. I'm not a house fan. I see house as martini drinking music. I like hard intense music in general whatever the genre.
Movies include Breaking the Waves, The Piano, Princess Bride, Super Bad, Persuasion, Talladega Nights. I watch a ton of British stuff esp. cop, spy, forensic, mystery type shows/movies and love Masterpiece Theatre, so Prime Suspect, Luther, Spooks, Ripper Street, The Fall, Whitechapel, Broadchurch, The Bletchely Circle and that sort of thing. I love period pieces = The White Queen, Little Dorrit, Persuasion, The Last Kingdom and I could go on forever. Also I like Arrested Development, Trailer Park Boys, Modern Family, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, Scrotal Recall, Misfits, Community, True Blood, Being Human (British version), Orange is the New Black, The Mindy Project, Girls, Vikings, Last Tango in Halifax, Breaking Bad. Also into historical documentaries. Can't get enough history right now.
Books I like include The Mists of Avalon, A Prayer for Owen Meany, Interview with a Vampire, Catcher in the Rye. Again I like mysteries and forensic, cop type stories, especially British ones as well as fantasy. I read lots of non-fiction too. My degree is interdisciplinary and is in Psychophysical Movement Studies so there are some authors for whom I have great respect including Linda Leonard, Pema Chodron and of course Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Currently reading a lot about epi-genetics and the new brain science.
The six things I could never do without
my silks, my intuition, friends, family, love, laughs,
phone/internet, lip balm (yes I'm addicted and yes orally fixated).
That's more than six.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Spirituality vs the possible indifference of the universe, healing,
the body mind paradox, quantam phsyics, the nature of the universe,
energy, the mechanics of the body, epi- genetics, nutrigenomics and
new brain science.
On a typical Friday night I am
Meeting friends for dinner or perhaps a party. Might be rehearsing or performing in a show. Love to be out dancing or just relaxing with a movie. At home researching.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I own a Bros CD. Shhh, don't tell.
You should message me if
you like to LAUGH (better yet if you have a totally dorky sense of
humour), listen to or better yet play music, watch sexy circus
shows, stay fit, eat great food, dance, love nature.
