My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm Tess! I have a day job in data management for financial advisors but also have a secondary career as a theatrical lighting designer. Let's see...what to say? My friends tell me that I'm warm, cuddly, and an awesome listener. I have a lot of likes and loves. I love theater (watching, acting, or working behind the scenes!), pretty much any animal you can name (especially dogs, though!), and action movies (Die Hard is amazing!). I have a great time traveling...lots of places to explore still! I'm pretty open-minded, and I have a great time meeting new people!

Oh, and I'm Irish, and proud of it!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just this summer I transitioned into a new career supporting independent financial advisors with data management and the use of reporting & trading software.

Before this I worked with dogs at a daycare and training facility. I started out working with dogs who don't do well in a typical daycare setting typically because they are either dog or people reactive, they're rough players, they're fearful, or they guard food and toys. We work with them one on one and put them with specific dogs to socialize in the hopes of helping them work on their issues. Then I transitioned into one of the best jobs ever: running the puppy program trying to make sure less dogs ended up int he other program. I spent all day with 10-20 week old puppies. If you ever need pictures or videos of puppies playing, I have a ton. I really miss the dogs and my love of dogs is a huge part of who I am but it was time to transition into something more stable. I'd rather volunteer with dogs and feel like I have a stable career.

I'm also working with a variety of theaters all around western Washington as a theatrical lighting designer and, very occasionally, a stage manager. It takes up a lot of time, but I wouldn't trade it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Dancing (tap, lyrical, bellydance), kayaking, swimming (I'm a major water baby), training dogs, being a shoulder to cry on, losing at MarioKart, finding information on the internet (it's a skill!), getting things organized, my job, getting involved in clubs/groups that I don't have time for but want to do anyway, conversing, learning, showing up at meetings and parties bearing baked goods.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My big brown eyes, my energy, my desire to be involved in everything, my tendency to organize EVERYTHING
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I am such a bookworm I can't even begin and I can only think of a few books that I didn't enjoy. Lately I've been gravitating towards books more for relaxation and an escape than anything. I've been reading more entertaining distracting novels and little to no "literature".

Movies: Princess Bride is definitely up there as is Star Wars (episodes IV, V, VI more so than I, II, III). I love action movies; Die Hard, The Bourne Trilogy (the fight choreography is incredible), James Bond (although I haven't seen them all...yet) I also love comedies but I enjoy them more if I have someone to laugh at them with. I'm not big into romantic comedies and while I can appreciate a good drama, I find I use movies more to cheer myself up.

Music: I'll listen to almost anything. My iPod is filled with Broadway soundtracks and mostly alternative or classic rock. I think I mostly listen to music with lyrics that I appreciate and the music to bring the message of the lyrics to the surface. Sometimes I just enjoy fun pop songs, too. I'm not sure if this qualifies as music but stand-up comedy is huge. Patton Oswalt, Maria Bamford, Lewis Black, Ellen Degeneres, and probably more I can't think of right now.

TV: Is huge for me so I have to create a category. Big Bang Theory, West Wing, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, How I Met Your Mother, Boston Legal, Firefly, House, stand-up comedy

Food: I'm a vegetarian but I don't judge meat eaters. I love pretty much every nationality of food but I can't handle anything too spicy. I'm horrible about cooking for myself. I love to bake and I love to feed other people but I never have the drive to cook a whole meal when I get home.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family (literally the best you could ever ask for), my friends (my second family), frequent dog/cat petting, my cell phone (because that's how I keep in touch with everyone), the internet (Netflix), art (intentionally broad)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future (lighting jobs, living in the city, what kind of person I want to be), and the people in my life
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I'm not in tech in the theatre I may be out with friends in Seattle but sometimes I just enjoy catching some "me" time at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm terrified of the dentist. I had a horrible situation when I was about 10 and ever since haven't been able to handle it. They prescribe me a Valium when I go in for a cleaning.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're a low maintenance guy who doesn't need a girl to tell him what kind of person he is. You can help me grow and learn as a person. I love getting involved in new things. Points are given for a sense of humor, being a dog lover, and having an appreciation for performing arts.
