My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an opera singer and classical violinist but jazz and the theatre were my first great loves. I am a full-time teacher and performer.

I have an old soul, and old taste- "classic", as I like to say.

I'm a whiskey lass. I take it neat. Caol Ila, if you have it. I love an old fashioned and a gin mule. Coffee, if it's early in the day. I'll take a cuppa Philz, Blue Bottle, or Sightglass.

I'm a Bay Area native, and have lived here most of my life except for my years of college in Boston and Kansas City, Missouri. I loved Boston and miss it dearly; and yes, Missouri was quite the culture shock, and quite the learning experience, and quite the comedy of errors.

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

I dream big, live passionately, am chronically curious, and have a strong-somewhat dominant-personality. I have a remarkable capacity for empathy and love, and a charming use of self-deprecating humor. I value these last two traits in myself above all others.

I plan to travel through and live in as many places on earth as possible. Really, I feel it is a crime against creation to live on this earth and not at least try to explore as much of it as you can (provided you have the means, of course). I've covered Europe and The States. Central and South America are next on my list. I'm taking my violin students to Honduras this July. Maybe it'll start a tradition and we'll keep bopping about the globe handing out free instruments and lessons and food and water...
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.
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'm the friend (or casual acquaintance) with whom people often confide and ask for guidance and counsel. I'm not sure if it's because I'm particularly good at giving advise, or if I'm the only person patient enough to listen to people's ramblings.

I'm great with kids. I've definitely learned a lot more from kids than from adults.

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

Bending. Just-yeah. As it sounds. I practice yoga daily.

Clucking like a chicken and other random noise-making.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Somebody please answer this for me...

....ok, so I've been told it's my eyes. Booooring.
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 dont watch TV often but when I do I love most things on PBS, especially Charlie Rose and Downton Abbey. Dig Mad Men, and Louis CK. Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are the two sexiest men on television. Anthony Bourdain is a close third. I also have a not-so-closeted love of great detective shows. Beck and other foreign greats are examples-and True Detective has been awesome. Is it true Brad Pitt is coming on next season? Mmmmm, thank you True Detective.

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; Fleet Foxes, Amy Winehouse, and Rufus Wainwright are examples of more current musicians I dig.

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. Ha. Yes. Love food. Love trying new foods. No fear! Really, try me. I love a Great Drink! I don't drink often, but I enjoy drinking quality. Don't serve me Merlot, Vodka, or "light beer". I don't believe in light beer and the other two I just don't like.

Movies: Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, La Dolce Vita, Rebel Without a Cause, Annie Hall, Vicky Christina Barcelona (Really just all of Woody Allen in general), Broken Embraces, Capote, Reds, Doubt, Motorcycle Diaries, Bad Education, Y Tu Mama Tambien, Wall-E, The Pianist, Blow, Blazing Saddles, History of the World Part I (Really, all of Mel Brooks, too), Lincoln, Argo, "No", ZeroDarkThirty
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
The Food and Drink I love
My Brain
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 dog's nightmares are like....
•Am I taking the next right step?
•How can I afford my next big trip or adventure?
•How can I be a better teacher, opera singer, friend, family member, yogi, human being?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a yoga class followed by time with friends either out for drinks or in watching a movie.
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

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
•You actually read through this entire rediculously verbose profile, because chances are you were captivated by something.

•You can come up with a clever opening line. Please-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 beer at the Trappist, 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 Real Science.
