I am an opera singer
I stand on painted tape
It tells me where I'm going
And where to throw my cape

I sing opera, I play and teach the violin, and I'm an administrator at an amazing montessori school in Berkeley (8-4, stability, adulting 👍).

I have this theory that what you drink says a lot about you. I'm a whiskey lass. I take it neat. Caol Ila, if you have it. I love a beer by Russian River, and a tasty Malbec or Cab. I drink entirely too much coffee. I'll take a cuppa Philz, Blue Bottle, or Sightglass. I take it black or with a drop of cream- no sugar.

The people I love always come first in my life, and if I know anything about myself it is that I'm a damn good friend. If shit goes down with someone I love I won't hesitate to put my life on hold to be there for them. I'm loyal to a fault.

I dream big, live passionately, am chronically curious, and have a strong-somewhat dominant-personality. I value my capacity for empathy and love, as well as my inability to take myself too seriously above all my other traits.

I'm an ENFP (or J depending on the test- which I guess means I'm equal parts judgy and perceptive). I'm a 3 with a 2 wing on the enneagram scale- if that all means anything to anyone. I understand it's very important to some. :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Kicking ass, taking names, and other shenanigans.

Really, this question is either entirely too existential, or errs on the side of sounding like your nagging mother....
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Telling crazy-but-true stories- usually collected from my life. I'm mostly a story-teller.

I have a knack for parallel parking in absurdly tight spots.

Baking! I'm not really into eating desserts, but I'm pretty darn good at making them.

Clucking like a chicken, making a fire engine siren sound, and other random noise-making.

Lifting really heavy things. I recently discovered a natural gift for this. Kinda funny juxtaposition to the rest of me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
After taking a brief poll, the top consistent answers were: Eyes, Smile, Voice/laugh. "Boobs!" was unanimous amongst my male friends. Pretty standard, boring answers if you ask me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Oy! This is pretty important stuff to me- so here's a taste of what I'm into:

Books (Authors): Steinbeck, Huxley, Hesse, Bellow, Dante Alighieri, Shakespeare, Austen, Sedaris, Téa Obreht, Gregory David Roberts, Allende, Eugenides, Shel Silverstein, Federico García Lorca;

TV: I almost never watch TV, except for Downton Abbey, and maybe Modern Family if it's on. Really not a TV person. All the shows I used to love are gone: Jon Stewart, Colbert Report, Mad Men, True Detective Season 1 (2 was a huge disappointment). So. Yeah. No TV.

Music: Shostakovich, Beethoven, Mahler, Verdi, Puccini, Stravinsky, Debussy, Ravel, Ives, Brahms, Satie, Schubert, Schumann, Strauss, Wagner; Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck Quartet, Benny Goodman, Fats Waller, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Rosemary Cloney, Billie Holiday, Thelonious Monk, Horace Silver; Amália Rodrigues; Victor Wooten, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin; I've recently gotten into an SF band called Be Calm Honcho. Check 'em out! Go local!

Food: Is it spicy? Can I make it spicy? How spicy can I make it? Does it involve pork, please? Ethnically speaking: (authentic!) Italian, Greek, Thai, Indian, Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean, and Mexican are my absolute favorites. Yes. Love food. Love trying new foods. No fear! Really, try me. I love a Great Drink! I worked in the alcohol industry briefly, and am a bit of a wine and beer geek. Not a snob. Just a geek.

Movies: Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, La Dolce Vita, Casablanca, Rebel Without a Cause, Woody Allen in general, Broken Embraces, Capote, Reds, Doubt, Motorcycle Diaries, Bad Education, Y Tu Mama Tambien, Wall-E, The Pianist, Blow, Mel Brooks, specifically: Blazing Saddles and History of the World Part I, Lincoln, Argo, "No", ZeroDarkThirty, Interstellar. Is that list broad enough?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The People I love
The Music I love
The Books I love
Great Food and Drink
My sense of humor
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
•What are dog nightmares about?
•How can I afford to get out of the country for a little while? Where should my next adventure be?
•How can I be a better teacher, musician, friend, family member, human being?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Drinking great beer with greater friends. Or sometimes just having an NPR podcast binge.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Nothing is too private with me, so I'll just tell you something funny: I was pittle- my- pants- petrified of E.T. until I was about 13 years old. I still shudder a little bit to think of
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
•You actually read through this ridiculously verbose profile, because chances are you were captivated by something.

•You can come up with a clever opening line. Please, I beg you, no more crappy pick-up lines. I can't believe these work for any of you....shame on the women who dignify them with a response! Shame!

•You're a renaissance man-I have a weakness for those.

•You're a liberal. Clearly on the left. Not a libertarian. Definitely not undecided or apathetic or "anarchistic" (Jesus, don't get me started on THAT bullshit!) A liberal. You must be a voting, conscientious liberal. Otherwise it just ain't gunna work out, trust me.

•You enjoy a great cuppa coffee, a really great beer, a day at the museum, and a night at the symphony or opera.

•You know that dogs trump cats, baseball trumps football, and Andrea Bocelli and "the phantom of the opera" have about as much to do with opera as "Christian Science" has to do with Einstein and Hawking.
