Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've been exploring monogamy for almost two years now with a guy
and we recently decided to open things up. Not sure how it will go,
as he's never explored polyamory before. We love each other and are
good friends, but he's not into doing some of the things I like and
need to do.
Previous to this relationship I was used to going- with my
polyamorous ex as an awesome party/play partner- to Lightning In A
Bottle, Fuente, DoLab parties, downtown loft parties, openings,
exhibits, wine-tastings, etc. Being (only) with my new partner, I
feel like I'm losing touch with my amazing artistic community,
which feeds my creative expression in life.
As he has no interest in expanding his experience into these
arenas, I now find myself putting up a profile on OkCupid.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Think I said it all down there...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
DANCING! I love to dance at underground parties and clubs, I love
to hoop dance, and I love aerial pole dance. I recently did one of
the pole solos- dancing between the famous girls' acts while the
poles were being cleaned ;) - at Pole Show LA, and just made the
cast of Girl Next Door at King King. Fifteen years of yoga has
given me a strong flexible body that pretty much cooperates with
whatever I ask of it, in whatever movement activity takes my fancy
at the moment.
I'm good at writing and editing other people's writing. I can read
any author and get the "feel" of their style and write something as
if I was them and you wouldn't know the difference. (None of my
time is spent doing that these days.) My own style is pretty unique
as well. Right now I'm e-publishing my first novel. I don't know if
I'll write another but I finished this one and I'm happy with it
and excited to share it. It's called "Fringes" and is available at
smashwords.com and Amazon.
I've played classical piano since I was six but after I learned my
favorite Chopin piece- the Fantasie Impromptu that anyone who's
ever heard the built-in keyboard demo songs at Guitar Center will
recognize- I stopped focusing on dead composers' music and started
writing and singing my own. Don't know where that's going but I'm
having fun. I do still play the occasional nocturne or etude from
time to time.
Sometimes I paint though I don't consider myself "a painter," but I
had a few pieces up in the LA Municipal Art Show at Barnsdall last
August, and more recently at Artwalk at The Brewery. I paint
I'm a raw vegan chef but not because I went to culinary school.
When I got into raw foods ten years ago, there were maybe two raw
culinary schools in the country and nothing close to me. I ordered
recipe books online, made some things, they tasted good, so I
started selling them in health food stores and that's how I'm able
to spend my days dancing, writing, singing, and painting now,
instead of going to some 9-5 situation. I cannot imagine answering
to any boss other than mysel
What I truly excel at though is enjoying life. I love that it's
noon on Thursday right now and I have no one to answer to but
myself, no where to go but wherever I feel like going. I haven't
used an alarm clock in over a decade. Also, I don't own a
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My pink hair...sometimes with feather extensions.
But not to worry- no birds were sacrificed for my fabulous do- I
know the names of the parakeets whose feathers went into my hair
accessories and their feathers were lovingly collected from the
floor of the house they freely fly about, over a period of weeks as
they naturally molted.
...Can't say the same about the cows whose skin became my leather
boots but hey, I do my best.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm currently reading "House of Holes" by Nicholson Baker. Love
sexy literary fiction. Well-written erotica a la Anne Rice's Beauty
series. Channeled books are fun. Non-sexy literary fiction is good
too (and sexy in its own way, to literary nerds like myself), like
early Douglas Coupland and Martin Amis.
Last movie I saw was "Pina" which I loved. Love 3-D movies in
general. Avatar was spectacular. Before that was Girl With The
Dragon Tattoo (European version, which I much preferred to the
American). Prefer the more unique and creative
stories/plotlines/approaches of European movies to Hollywood
blockbusters in general, though reading subtitles after 11pm can
put me to sleep, so if it's later in the evening, best if I only
attempt movies in languages I speak.
Going to Lucent Dossier this weekend (seen them many times at
festivals and love them). I always go to Cirque Berzerk when
they're in town. Girl Next Door is fun. Love all the vertical arts
shows- pole, tissu/silks, hoop, Cirque du Soleil's edgier
Last thing I listened to on Spotify was Lullaby Renditions of
Bjork. Listening to my Combustible Edison station on Pandora right
now. Some of my other favorite Pandora stations are Groove Armada,
Beats Antique, Pretty Lights, Trentemoller, Tricky, Psygone,
OceanLab, CocoRosie, Lady Gaga, India Chill...
Last place I ate out was Cafe Gratitude. Before that, Figaro Cafe
in Los Feliz- awesome deal on carafes plus they let you sit there
for hours, like you're at a real French cafe in...France ;) If it
weren't for cheese I could easily be vegan. On my own I eat mostly
raw, mostly vegan, but when I go out I enjoy Italian, Mexican,
Brazilian, Indian, Thai- it's always easy for me to find veggie

How to get my creations out into the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't have typical Friday nights. Any night can be Friday for me.
It's sometimes more fun to go out on other nights when places
aren't as crowded. This Friday I'll be at Lucent Dossier. Last
Friday I stayed up til dawn typing book chapters into online
e-publishing templates. Friday before that I practiced my pole
routine all night in a panic over having to dance between Estee
Zakar and Jenyne Butterfly the next day.
