My self-summary
I have a really awesome job, a great family and a few tattoos. None of those things defines me, and yet all of them do.

I believe indifference, not hatred, is the opposite of love.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a professional A/V nerd at a fairly well known Chicago institution. I'm also a mom. The combination makes it difficult to do a whole lot else, but I'm kind of a localvore, an amateur conservationist and a cyclist -- so long as I don't get hit by any more cars.

After a "nine month injury" that stretched out beyond 7 years, I recently returned to skating roller derby in a recreational league, and I just started work on a professional certificate in my field with the intent of springboarding into a graduate program once that coursework is complete.
I’m really good at
My job. Beyond 'really good,' in fact.

Cooking. From scratch whenever possible and with food direct from the farm whenever practical.

Being a parent. (I've been told that my kiddo and I were like a sitcom. I took it as a compliment.)

Being frugal, even when it's not necessary. My friends say I know how to "live high on a low hog." I call it making the most of what you've got.

Taking the high road/doing the 'right' thing.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile... Or my infectious laugh. Maybe my thick rimmed nerdy glasses and my large assets?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm passionate about local, seasonal foods. I prefer red meat to white, though I was once vegan and still often eat meatless meals. I put my money where my mouth is and participate in collaborative buying and community supported agriculture whenever and wherever possible.

Musically, I'm all over the map, though lately my tastes tend towards melodic post-punk/post-rock.

I don't read as much as I wish I did. It seems like most of my reading these days is done in shorter bursts and tends towards non-fiction in content. Ahh for the days of being able to cozy up with a warm blanket and a good book....

I like movies of many sorts. I'm not so into horror/slasher/b-types as much as suspenseful thrillers and foreign dramas, though.
The six things I could never do without
Music, family, my dog, good food, laughter and my contoured memory foam pillow. Oh, and my silly pink track bike.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future.

What other oddball instruments I should aquire and whether or not it's ridiculous to purchase a vintage Yamaha console and ProTools HD setup for a home studio.

The fact that this profile is starting to make me sound like a pretentious, skinny-jeans-wearing hipster. Oh wait, I said ProTools... No self-respecting hipster would use anything but tape. I have absolved myself.

How we English-speaking Americans have gotten so linguistically lazy that we'll abbreviate ANYTHING, no matter how short it already is (examples: FroYo, Totes). I blame Twitter. Totes.
On a typical Friday night I am
At work. But I have Mondays off, so I think I came out ahead on that one.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Clearly would no longer be private if I did...
I’m looking for
  • Straight guys only
  • Ages 39–45
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
you enjoy living life for yourself, value the arts, can embrace your inner nerd, are looking for someone to treat with love and respect who has those same qualities. Extra points for sense of humor and good taste in music and/or movies (though I'd like to think we can hip each other to some cool new stuff, so the same tastes in music, film, books and television are certainly not mandatory).

Or if you've been stalking my page nearly daily and haven't messaged me. Contrary to my username, I promise I don't bite -- unless you want me to.
