I grew up in LA, and moved to Seattle for college. I fell in love with the Pacific Northwest, so I decided to stick around. I'm glad I made the move, but I make it a point to visit LA at least once a year.
There's a lot of really cool stuff to do in the world, and I want to do all of it. I've gone scuba diving off of Maui, both officiated AND dueled with the groom at a wedding (two different events), flown a plane over Seattle, and performed with a taiko group in rural Japan. And I'm just getting started.
I try to stay creative outside of just games. I like to create things I enjoy. So I write short fiction and compose music. They're great for keeping the creative juices flowing, and allow me to express myself in more ways. Learning new things is exciting to me; the more I know the richer everything becomes!
I love to travel. I've been to about a dozen of the states, and nearly as many countries across Europe and Asia. I love visiting new places and seeing what life is like there. There's so much to the world, and I want to see and experience as much of it as possible.
My favorite movie is Blade Runner. I love the way it plays with our expectations, both of how stories are told and of what it means to be human.
I listen to a lot of symphonic metal and power metal. All of the energy and skill of metal, but with no Cookie Monster vocals. I like music that's triumphant; it helps keep me motivated.
Food: I'm a big fan of Asian food generally, although not sushi for some reason. Indian buffets are dangerous places for my heart, but I figure my modest scotch and brandy habits help out with that some.
Music - What can I say? Music keeps me sane.
Travel - There's so much world out there; I love seeing new places and experiencing how other people live.
Books - I love reading, always have. I tend to alternate between denser, more literary stuff and lighter nonfiction or pop fiction.
Creativity - I've always got a few side projects going. It's practically compulsive behavior.
Curiosity - There's always something new to discover, something new to learn. It's how people grow.
Numeracy - I'd hate to make some silly counting mistake.
I also spend a lot of time thinking about life, and how to live it well. How can I be making the most of myself, and of the time I have in the world?
I'm looking for an intelligent woman who has at least a solid direction for what she wants to be doing in life, and strong sense of who she is. If that's you, I'd love to hear from you!
