My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a semi-recent transplant to New York, here from the rocky mountains of Colorado since May of 2010. I have grown to love living in New York, and every day I feel grateful to be in such an inspiring place.

I try and greet each day as it comes, knowing that through my blunders, I have opportunities to grow and become better. I am by no means an optimist or a perfectionist, but I do have high expectations for myself and respect others who do for themselves as well.

I've been told that prematurely eccentric, which I take as a compliment. I have always felt very connected with the past, and somewhat misplaced within time.

Although I could not be considered "religious," I feel a very spiritual connection to the acts of and the products of human expression and imagination. In art, I see "the divine." I have always been attracted to, inspired and sustained by it. It permeates and informs all that I experience, and gives me my greatest sense of purpose and direction.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an art nerd with a BFA in Painting and a BA in Art History from Colorado State University. I spent a couple of years as a resident artist in a contemporary art gallery where I had a studio and show space, and now I'm living out the New York starving artist cliché, complete with the day job sitting at a desk from 9-5 and the uptown Manhattan 5th floor walk up apartment. Eventually I may get up the courage to apply to MFA programs, you know, so I can make the big bucks with additional super-useful degrees, like a Masters in Drawing, muahahaha...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at putting my foot in my mouth, I have always been amazingly gifted at saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, and trying my best to laugh off even the worst of my faux pas.

I grew up in a family of musicians and have played guitar and been singing for most of my life. I enjoy listening to and playing many different varieties of music. Lately I've been learning old jazz songs on the ukulele, but I can't yet say that i've "mastered" it...

My mother always told me that I was born old, I've always had tastes for many things from the past.

I'm a big fan of jazz and blues from the 1920's and 1930's, and have taken up collecting vintage LP's. Some of my favorites include Django Reinhardt, Fats Waller, the Boswell Sisters, etc... My father was a bluegrass musician, and so I'm quite fond of folk music from the American past. I do enjoy a lot of contemporary musicians as well like Tom Waits, Joni Mitchell, Regina Spektor, Carla Bruni, and more than can fit on this page. Also I can never get enough of classic rock, especially the later Beatles albums.

I'm a huge movie buff. I love foreign films, especially French and Spanish cinema. I am a huge Woody Allen fan, I believe I've seen every one of his films, and have many favorites. I love old movies and have many favorite actors like Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant, Greta Garbo, Mae West, Bette Davis, James Cagney, etc...

One of my favorite books is The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera. I love the short stories of F. Scott Fitzgerald as well as The Great Gatsby (of course, who doesn't?). David Sedaris is one of my contemporary literary heroes. I'll also always love Roald Dahl, regardless of how old I get.

Edmund Burke and Immanuel Kant's theories of the Sublime and Beautiful (i'm a dork), paint additives, my ukulele, new french vocabulary words, the past, the future, the events in between...

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
