Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I wear many hats in my life. I am a fitness nut and am constantly
on the go doing one thing or another. My degree is in audio
engineering and my personal craft is house and trance music. I have
an awesome monster of a kid and devote a good chunk of my time when
at home with him. I am second banana to a larger-than-myself
boombox society who is committed to bring rogue dance parties to
the streets of Austin. I enjoy creatively writing and devote time
in my life to thinking/reading/writing about comic book heroes. I
go to conventions an take pictures, not of people, but of these
creepy awesome dolls that I happen to collect. I am also happily
married to a wonderful husband who knows that I am here on OkC
looking to meet people. If that doesn't freak you out in any way,
then I invite you to read further.
I am not the girl next door, I am not in any sort of way graceful
or feminine. I am loud, extroverted, easily excitable and often
full-throttle until I fall down flat on my face. At the same time I
am socially awkward and often try to cope with that by marching to
the beat of my own drum and encouraging others to join me. I am
opinionated and will speak my mind, sometimes to my own detriment.
I have little patience for unhonorable behavior, or for people who
do not keep their word. I like to think that I am a kind and loving
person, but I can have a mean temper once it is riled. I intimidate
men who do not know me. I am an athlete and a warrior and when
hardship slaps me in the face, I bear my teeth and kick its
I know some might think that I just listed a litany of faults and
weaknesses, but not me. I am proud and not apologetic for who I am,
but I feel like my most glaring qualities should be put out in the
open. While I am all of the things that I just said, I am also in
some ways completely the opposite.
I am fiercely loyal to the people who prove to me they are worth my
time. I am the biggest Twinkie in the world and cry predictably at
movies and tv shows. I like to think that I am an excellent cook,
who has mastered MOST types of food (except Indian food, damn you,
delicious curry!) I am an affectionate, goofy, understanding person
who likes to talk about nothing all day, and then hear about how
cute your kid was when you put them to bed. I enjoy making genuine
connections with genuine people.
Partying, or the act of listening to music and dancing for the sake
of nothing else, is a big part of my life. Despite my day job, I am
working hard at becoming a force of nature on the dance floors of
Austin. Music is my life, heart and soul.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work a boring day job that pays the bills but thankfully goes
quickly once I get going. At night, I care for my son and husband,
and then on the weekends I play shows and go dancing!
In the mean time, most of my spare time is eaten up by organizing
my boombox society and trying to get everything in order so I can
see my plans come to fruition. I have so many crazy ideas, and they
are right at the tips of my fingers!
I jumped feet first back into DJ'ing last year after a "shit got
real and then I had a kid" break. It feels good to be back. I am
currently obsessed with collecting every awesome mashup ever. I am
also expanding my library of tracks to have a pretty mean selection
of TribalTech. Because I can.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, planning fun stuff, hiking, fitness, being an Amazon,
dancing my ass off, Batman lore, articulating why DC's Nu-52 is a
travesty to mankind, beating classic/vintage trance into submission
to facilitate my obsession with 3 minute mixes, obsessing over
tracks that won't be available to the public for another 2 weeks,
auto tuning people that can't sing (as much as it kills my soul), a
10 minute mile (my personal best), deadlifting 195#, doing 40#
squats in 5" platform spike heels, accepting the suck and kicking
its ass, organizing bananas and herding cats.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am very high energy and easily excitable. I get overtaken by a
project and give it 180% of my attention until it is done. I
intimidate men the first time I meet them, sometimes. I am an alpha
female who is used to running the show for my family.
The fact that I usually have at least one Bat-Symbol on me at all
It is worth mentioning that if you don't handle intense people
well, then you probably can't handle me. I'm intense. In every
sense of the word.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I LOVE food but have some crazy food allergies that make it hard
for me to just eat anywhere or any thing. I end up cooking most of
my meals, and enjoy trying new stuff out and new recipes. Most
people would consider my food health food. Also bacon. Lots and
lots of bacon.
My allergies are why I don't drink a lot. I can't have beer, and so
drinking to get drunk just doesn't appeal to me. I'm a 2-3 drink in
a night kinda girl.
I read a lot of current events stuff, but I have way too much ADD
to sit down and read book after book. The truth of the matter is
that I read so fast that I don't retain a lot of what I read, so I
can give it a couple years and read a book as if it were brand new
to me. At said, I LOVE comic books and somehow manage to retain as
much as possible about characters and story arcs.
Comic book movies are my favorite (Batman and Iron Man, hell
yes!!!) Horror movies aren't my favorite but I love zombies in
My music is terribly cheesy and I don't give a damn. I love 70's
disco, 80's nu-wave pop and 90's just-about-anything. House music
and Nine Inch Nails are my biggest greatest loves, so most of what
I listen to on a day to day basis is EDM or Trent Reznor
I am a DJ who records/produces music for her career, and so I hear
music differently than most people. I can hear how shitty
of a vocalist someone may be, despite how much auto tune they threw
on there. Go listen to Nicki Manaj and then go listen to Madonna
(from like the 80's) immediately after and maybe you'll get an idea
of what I mean. Modern music is, for the most part, shit.
I am choosy about what shows I go to. They usually have to be a
band/DJ that I enjoy. I really enjoy Lanai on 5th and Congress,
they have awesome music most nights of the week. Kingdom and
Republic are two other places that I enjoy going, but that's
because there is usually someone I bought tickets to go see is
playing. I enjoy going down town with a purpose, but just going to
6th to drink will be a "pass" for me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order....
• My son
• My turntables
• My internet capable devices (the iPhone and iPad are just
extensions of one another)
• My music (be it prerecorded or any live recording work I might
• My car (I dive a lot)
• Partying (remember, I'm a dancing fool, lol)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Songs to add to my party pod, how to build party costumes for my
boombox society, contemplate the future of music as we know it, and
playing coordinator for not only my life but my husband and son,
how the hell does the bpm waver on a track bough off iTunes,
reminding myself that not all EDM was written with a global beat
grid and that long ago they used outboard midi gear that wasn't
always 100% in synch (Lange, I am looking at you!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
My favorite thing to do on a Friday night is load my iPod full of
party tracks, grab a boombox and a few friends, and dance in the
streets of Austin. I can, just as often, be found writing about
Batman or the Green Lantern Corps with my dorky internet friends.
Maybe recording some music. Most recently, I've been having a lot
of shows on the weekend. Maybe you can come dance on my floor?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am obsessed with Batman.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
• You like dancing and house/trance and can actually talk to me
about tracks, artists and production.
• You are a musician of some sort yourself, possibly in a band or
playing out as a DJ.
• You want to be part of something larger than life
• You are unafraid to let your hair down and be silly
• If your idea of fun does NOT always include getting drunk, but
you're still willing to grab a coffee and a great
• You understand that life gets busy and I have a family to care
• You can dig that I need to be friends first, before we can be any
In the interest of being up front, I want to mention that sex is
not my top motivator. Sex is not off the table, but I get plenty of
awesome sex already. Think of sex as the icing. I want to have good
times, great conversations, explore someone intellectually and then
- only then - will sex come into consideration. Your patience, I
assure you, will be worth it. If you can not have patience and
respect for my need to move slow to avoid being overwhelmed, then I
am not the girl for you.
It should also be mentioned that I have some pretty specific
boundaries pertaining to how I am treated by others. I let someone
break all those boundaries recently, and learned my lesson. If you
can not communicate clearly, be open and honest with me, and own up
to your own actions, please don't message me.
