My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My relationships have always sprung from friendships so I've never really "dated" in my adult life (not counting the odd teenage date). This online dating thing is totally new to me and would be sort of scary if it weren't for the fact that I'm a performing musician so I'm used to meeting new people all the time. I enjoy getting to know people and am approaching this new adventure with optimism. At the very least, I hope to have some interesting conversations and hopefully, will make some new friends. Finding that special someone is certainly my long term hope, but I'm focused on enjoying the journey rather than the destination.

I'm originally from the San Francisco bay area and moved to Colorado in '94 (something I've never regretted - love it here!). In addition to being a performing singer-songwriter,
I'm also a writer, poet, and a bit of a "Jack (or Jill) of all trades." I have a lot of skills and interests, so I guess you'd say I'm naturally very curious and enjoy learning new things. My life experiences have brought me to a great sense of self-awareness and purpose and I enjoy being in the company of like-minded people who are open-minded, have learned a lot, and who are very aware that there's so much more to learn. Humor has gotten me through the tough times, so a good sense of humor is important as well.

I'm very laid back, don't sweat the small stuff, and try not to take myself too seriously. Content and character is much more important to me than the "cool factor." Compassion, intelligence, an open mind, tolerance, creativity, and a genuine passion for living one's purpose are traits I value in myself and others.

In general, I live life outside the box, question authority, marvel at this astoundingly beautiful and miraculous world we live in, and try to be mindful and grateful for every moment that I'm here.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
There are so many ways I could answer this, but I think I'll just go with the least profound answer. I juggle several jobs in addition to my music career, including hosting entertainment events that feature other up-and-coming-artists, freelance writing projects, and executive assistant work. Some of it is work, but much of it constitutes my social life since this work involves hanging out with creative, interesting people. In my free time, which I don't have much of, I spend time with friends and try to spend at least a little time enjoying nature each day (usually when I'm caring for my horse).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Singing; writing songs that touch people deeply (or so I've been told); expressing myself in a way that people consider vulnerable which gives people permission to be vulnerable, too; swearing like a sailor; witty repartee (or smart-ass remarks); riding horses (I used to be able to spear a 6-inch brass ring with a 12-foot lance at a gallop and probably still could if I had the opportunity); communicating with animals, talking to myself; writing and editing; organizing the offices of completely unorganized small business owners; multi-tasking; and procrastinating.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I asked around (seriously, I can't answer this about myself) and I was told my smile, my laugh, my sense of humor, and apparently, my eyes tell people I'm approachable and friendly. (Who knew? Glad I asked.)

Lately, I've been suffering from a severe Pho addiction. Have to have it at least once a week. I've also discovered a nice Polish restaurant close by.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Nature and animals
Good stories, whether in books or movies
My spirituality
My friends
Great food and tea
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My music career (how to reach more people, where to play), the next song or project I'm working on, what I can do to make the world a better place, how I can help those in my community, what moves me and why, how to simplify my life, what I really need to be happy and feel like my life has had meaning... and food. Unfortunately, since I juggle several jobs, I spend way too much time thinking about my schedule and what I need to do next.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Performing, working on a work or music project, hanging out with friends, at a friend's show, or relaxing at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not at all private and will tell you just about anything including some things that, once you get to know me a little, are sure to surprise if not shock you, but we'll have to discuss those one-on-one.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I sound like someone you'd like to get to know. However, please don't expect a response if all you have to say is "hi," "what's up?," etc. If you're serious, you'll introduce yourself. Tell me about yourself. Let's have a conversation.
