Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a bit of a jack-of-all-trades. I work full time at a doctor's
office doing patient registration, I run several online graphic
design shops, I make and sell my own chainmaille jewelry... I'm a
pianist, author, designer, actor, singer, photographer, reader and
general geek extraordinaire.

Also, there's no way to identify as genderqueer on here so... Yeah.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to live it to the best of my ability.
Recently, I've been obsessed with all things Sherlock Holmes. I've
always loved the original stories, loved the RDJ/Jude Law
adaptation, but Sherlock
, the BBC
's modern re-imagining, has me completely
and utterly hooked. If you haven't seen it, I have the first two
seasons on DVD and will gladly subject you to them :3
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
, and obscure references.
I've been playing piano
on and off since I was in
Kindergarten. Of course, now I wish I had taken it more seriously
when I was younger, but I know enough to enjoy playing, and that's
all that matters.
I've also been told I have a good eye for picking up weird things
at antique stores and garage sales. I love anything vintage, odd,
or industrial. I'm always up for driving around and looking for
random antique stores!
The first things people usually notice about me

I never know what to put here. I don't know what the first thing
people notices about me is... generally because I'm not the person
first noticing things about myself. What did you first notice about

Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love murder mysteries, classic literature and anything on graphic
design. Some titles: The Complete Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
, Anything and everything by
. Right now I recently finished "The Hound of the
D'Ubervilles" - a retelling of many of the canon Sherlock stories
from the perspective of Professor Moriarty
Colonel Sebastian Moran
. I'm currently
reading "What If" by the creator of xkcd, Randall Monroe.
As far as movies go, I love all the good new classics like
, Back to the Future
, etc. It's
hard to make a list of all the movies I like, but typically
anything in the comedy
, action, fantasy
, drama, or epic genre is for me.
Some recent favorites include The Avengers
; Scott Pilgrim vs.
; Iron Man
; Sherlock Holmes
; I Love You, Man
new one); Shaun of the Dead
; Ocean's 11
; August Rush
I can't think of right now.
I tend to watch more TV than I do movies. Some of my favorites
, Doctor Who
, Criminal Minds
, Mystery Science
and Two Guys,
A Girl, and a Pizza Place
. I've been on a wildlife documentary
Music is a little hard to pin down. I go through phases ranging
from classical piano to 90s alternative to celtic chants to hard
rock. I'm not really into hip-hop or rap. Bands that I never get
tired of include Gordon Lightfoot
, Jamie Cullum
, Foo Fighters
, Linkin Park
. Lately I've been listening
to a lot of folk and Irish music.
Lastly, food. I eat pretty much anything, though I can be picky at
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My friends
2. My phone
3. My cat (Jasmine)
4. A high-speed internet connection (and access to Twitter)
5. My car
6. My calligraphy pens
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where I've come from and where I'm going.
How other people see the world.
How the brain works. Especially when it comes to things like change
blindness. It's baffling.
Why cats only want your attention when you're trying to sleep, eat,
The number of studies done on the number of licks it takes to get
to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop.
Why people think that photoshopping hot models into even more
unrealistic versions of themselves isn't harming the body-image
mindset of the world today.
How I can scrounge up enough money to afford a trip to
What I would do if I met Andrew Scott or David Tennant on said
The day-to-day lives of Sebastian Moran and Jim Moriarty.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out on twitter talking with my friends in England and
elsewhere, watching Let's Play videos on YouTube and crocheting

I've never been stung by a bee.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want someone to talk to. You'd like to hang out sometime and
get to know eachother. You know a great Antique store we can check
out together. You're not afraid of someone with curves. You can
point me to a new awesome BBC series. You know how many licks it
takes to get to the tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop (and have
the studies to back it up). You know exactly why I'm wearing that
particular baseball cap in my profile picture.
Feel free to message me about anything! I don't bite unless you
want me to :) Be warned, however - if you send me a stupid message,
expect a stupid answer. Also, I'm not exactly a grammar snob, but
please at least make an attempt at coherence.
