I'm here to find something with depth... and perhaps make some great friends along the way
Tall, curvy, and completely feminine...
Long winded (just look at the length of this profile!)
And to quote Sir Mix A lot: an LA face with an Oakland booty. Hourglass figure, built for a man who loves to appreciate curves ;)
I'm somewhat hard to define, and contain a lot of opposites.
Snuggly and sensitive yet come off as strong.
Equally comfortable at a black tie affair, at an art opening or the theater as I am playing Playstation in my pajamas or camping in the woods. (I love video games for their artistic merits, honestly)
I'm well rounded and can wax poetic about topic ranging from Bitcoin to Buddhism. I work at an art gallery, and run a few small businesses. I'm a painter and working artist and in love with the creative process. I'm a hippy at heart. I love people. Though I might love animals more.
Traveling is important to me. Not just to exotic destinations, but all places in between. Small towns, run down places too. The idea of a year long road trip across the US in a RV sounds like heaven to me. Wanna travel together?
I live on the edge of Emeryville/Oakland....and am San Francisco all the time and don't mind the thought of dating someone outside the Bay, especially if it means spending more time on a farm :) I can imagine myself moving somewhere more rural someday...especially if I can garden.
I meditate, love philosophy, appreciate Buddhism and Taoism for it's wisdom-isms. In short...I'm pretty witchy. Tarot, shamanism. I'm very committed to a practice of personal growth: Ayahuasca is an amazing experience, and being in ceremony has become an important part of my life. That said, I'm also down to earth and can hang with just about anyone, logical, business-types and atheists included.
I'd love to find someone who lights me up. A best friend who I can't keep my hands off ;) true partnership, friendship on fire.
That said, I do take things slow, believe in being friends before anything else. Connection takes time and anything worthwhile is worth waiting for. Ultimately, I'd love a partner to go deep with. You know, co-habitation: The final frontier. Someone to share a home with, a space for creating and a big round table to gather friends around. I want a creative life full of projects and travel with my partner. I'm not so interested in raising kids or having a family. But a partner to build something with, yes please.
This last paragraph is meant to scare you off. If it hasn't, awesome :) xo
I run a few businesses and enjoy a lot of freedom.
I assist at a gallery here in Oakland.
I paint, and sculpt, and adore installation and video. I've studied at several fancy art schools, exhibited in galleries, and have been lucky enough to actually sell most of my artwork. Fun, right? I balance all my artsy-stuff with good, entrepreneurial business sense. no starving here.
The Power of Attraction. Finite and Infinite Games
TV: Reno 911, adult cartoons, The Office, Little Britain
music: I love outdoor music festivals and will gladly get on a plane to go to a good one. Priorities. Priorities.
To name a few: MUTEK (montreal) DEMF (detroit electronic music festival) treasure island music fest, and yes, burning man (though i am not a "burner" by any means)
more music: gang gang dance, SBTRKT, fleet foxes, the beatles, beruit, matmos, iron and wine. mazzy star. the shins. jeff buckley, bat for lashes. fever ray , the knife, owen pallett. noise, drone, glitch, dubstep, funk, soul, 80's cheese, old school 90's hip hop, like black moon, smif n wesson, aaliyah, some gangsta rap believe it or not...and...fleetwood mac?
food: anything but wheat. im pretty turned on to the paleo diet these days.
The rest of this stuff is gravy:

~you dream of an urban homestead: chickens, bees, gardens
~you're great at sexy stuff ;)
~you're extroverted / have a big personality

~you value stability. this includes financial stability
~you love love
~you love nature: hiking, diving, snorkeling, camping, hot springs...
~you like to make stuff
~you wanna go out dancing
~you have a stellar music or film collection you want to introduce me to
p.s Fellas: online dating is completely fraught with weirdo's and scammers, men who don't read profiles, and other bad news bears. If she seems a little uptight, perhaps that is why. You men seriously have no idea. This place is full of landmines, be kind! Xo
