What I’m doing with my life
Professionally: Theatre management.

Personally: Working to both find and spread joy on a daily basis.
I’m really good at
Listening. Weighing both sides. Acting like a silly dork. Speaking in double entendres. Being patient (usually). Showing empathy. Seeing that the glass is half-full (I promise you, it is!).
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes...and my smile (thanks Mom and Dad for the braces!)

The six things I could never do without
1. Spirituality and family (tied for #1).
2. Close friends.
3. An optimistic attitude.
4. A sense of humor (goofy/witty/dirty).
5. Comfy bed.
6. The Arts.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The bigger picture. What we're all doing here on this planet. Self-improvement. Trying to live in the moment, while also appreciating where I've been/what I've done and where I still have yet to go.

I probably think too much, about everything...so I tend to spend a lot of time thinking about NOT thinking about things, too.

Does that make any sense?!?
On a typical Friday night I am
Recently - finishing up at work and either having dinner with a friend or heading uptown to have a quiet night at home. My time at home can be rare, so when I have the opportunity to be a homebody, I take advantage of it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Not entirely sure I want kids. Nothing definitive, as it obviously depends on a lot of things; but, a thought worth sharing.
You should message me if
You've made it this far and are still interested. I'm looking for something substantive (read: more than sex). I want to take the time to get to know you as someONE, not just SOMEone (the sex will come - trust me:) ). So, if you're looking for something similar and are emotionally available, drop me a message.
