I'm originally from upstate NY, graduated with a BA in International Studies, and I've been working in Chicago for the last 10 years. I enjoy drumming, ebm music, and my insufferably bratty cat. (And a whole bunch of other things too, but no one wants to read a laundry list of interests, right?)
I travel outside the US whenever I can, my favorite adventures have been to Northern Africa, and most recently, the West Indies. I'm still planning my next trip. Maybe Alaska?
When home, I'm rarely seen without a book in hand, usually sci-fi - but I'm not a Trekkie, and usually prefer being active to spending time in front of the tube.
I'm usually game for most adventures - "roughing it" in the badlands, hiking Letchworth gorge, and I even led the first race to post one Belmont stakes day. I enjoy spending time wandering around museums, and hope to participate in an archeological dig someday. I guess I'm a pretty traditional geek, but I *can* be dressed up and safely taken out in public. :)
I'm also a fan of taking out my aggression on the dance floor, and love to meet people as enthusiastic about their music as I am. Introduce me to the music you love - as long as you're open minded enough to give other non-mainstream music a chance.

(Edit) I'm now dating a wonderful guy, and not seeking other partners at the moment. However, I'm always happy to make new friends in Chicago.
I am motivated, vivacious, and stomperific
