Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in Davenport, IA. I moved to California at 18 to be part
of a non-profit organization to promote music education and
self-expression through the arts. I now work in reality television
production and live near Runyan Canyon on the cusp of Hollywood and
I like positive, friendly people who have a little bite to them. I
gravitate toward confident, self-deprecating types. Knowing you're
awesome while having the humility to make fun of yourself is
I often speak in accents or character voices, because I think it's
I am a smart, funny girl who doesn't like to be noticed as a cute,
pretty girl. I'd rather be noticed for my qualities that will
I sing a lot. Always have, always will. It's good for my
I will always laugh at my own jokes, even if others do not. My
jokes are usually horrible plays on words, otherwise known as "dad
jokes." I've been told a handful of times that I have a specific
laugh when I'm pleased with myself. Hell, if you don't think you're
awesome, how can you expect anyone else to?
Every time I hear someone say "rough," I have a hard time not
blurting out "Like your mother likes it, Trebek."
I giggle when people say they do do things. Everytime.
I'd like to meet someone I want to make room for in my life. So
far, that just hasn't happened. I'm holding out for something
magical. I'd rather be content with myself than pretend to be
content with someone that I'm not head over heels about.
I'm stubborn, easy-going, bossy, funny, empathetic, apathetic,
logical, emotional, organized, and a complete mess. Basically, I'm
totally normal (albeit pretty exceptional).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Kicking ass and taking names. Lots of ass kicking. Tons of names.
(I work long hours with awesome people, traveling and doing/seeing
interesting things as a production manager for reality television.
I'm pretty great at it.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Wordplay, shooting handguns, movie references, car dancing, car
drumming, car singing, problem solving, Mario Kart (N64 and Wii)
and spreading joy and laughter throughout the world.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile, my volume, or my badass dance moves.

I'm obsessed with the book series A Song of Ice and Fire (and the
Game of Thrones TV series from the books.) After the 5th book, I
felt like I'd gone through a horrible break up. I knew the best
thing for me was to read other books, but other books didn't make
me feel the same way. The characters weren't as developed, the
plots weren't as intriguing. After a few months, I read a handful
of quick reads and classics, but it was hard to enjoy them as much
as I enjoyed the Ice and Fire series. I'm now reading the third
book of the Dark Tower series. The Gunslinger was the first book
that has grabbed me since the Ice and Fire series. So yeah, I like
I am a Lakers fan. Basketball is the only sport that I regularly
follow, but I enjoy watching other sports live.
I love eating and don't understand how it's possible for people to
deny themselves things like dairy products and meat.
Mmmm...steak...chicken...lamby lamb. Meat rules.
I have an affinity for pop music enjoyed by 16 year old girls,
although I also listen to and enjoy a wide variety of more
"respectable" music. The range of music I listen to is diverse
(From Otis Redding to The Beatles to Jason Mraz to the Avett
Brothers to Maroon 5 to Celine Dion to Kanye to Abba), but if you
can't imagine hanging out with someone who will unabashedly dance
around singing every lyric to any and every One Direction song,
keep looking. I'm not your girl. That happens. Often.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family - This includes my friends. Having moved thousands of
miles from my family at 18, my friends are just as much part of my
Music - Every movie needs a soundtrack.
Delicious food - I have a 300lb black man who lives in my stomach.
His name is Leroy.
Laughter - There's too much sorrow in this world to get by without
a hefty dose of laughter.
Books - Where I can relax and take a trip with my imagination.
Yeah, I say dorky stuff like that a lot.
Me time - I'm fiercely independent, and I need time alone in order
to be my best.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Zombie/Apocalypse survival, what I'm going to eat next, and
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Keeping it low key. I like to wind down from the week with some
Netflix or go to a movie. This is if I'm not working over the
weekend. Sometimes a Friday is just like a Tuesday. Just depends on
my work schedule.
