I'm originally from the west coast but NYC has been home for almost 9 years, been in Brooklyn about half that time.
I love living in the city in spite (and maybe a little because of) the reasons people like to complain about it. Except the insane money part, that part just sucks. I always imagined I'd live many different places so I'm not against moving on eventually but I'm good for now. I really appreciate being able to have wine delivered to my apartment at 2am, why would I screw that up?
I'm a positive person with a slightly cynical sense of humor. Creative type that likes some organization, openminded, loyal, and even though everyone says it laid-back. Thoughtful but some times impulsive. I get along with most people and am pretty good at glossing it over when I don't. Appreciate good conversation, a sense of humor, and confidence with a dash of humility. Also having a passion about something (almost anything really) plus a little bit (or a lot) of nerd. I can be pretty nerdy....
Feminist and politically left. Not necessarily a deal breaker if you're not but if you're a serious Republican or believe a persons body is anyones but their own it ain't gonna work.
This has gotten long, sorry- will try to keep it brief for the rest. This site is wayyyy too much sometimes.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a curator that works between a few artist studios and gallery space that I help run. I spend a lot of time working but am making more of an effort to live with more balance and pursue various interests; although I love what I do I don't want to be defined by my job, life is too short. During my time off I like to hit up museums & galleries, see live music, walk everywhere in NYC, read and binge on Netflix, practice yoga, catch up with friends at happy hour and get away for a long weekend when possible. Not the most coordinated person, but I like the occasional tennis game, hike or kayaking trip. Plan to hit the beach as much as possible this summer. Nature is good.
I also spend a good chunk of my time playing with my 2 cats- they are awesome and I love them, sorry haters.
I’m really good at
great at making lists, ok at checking things off of them
karaoke (not really, but I love it)
reading maps & finding my way around
remembering faces & names
The first things people usually notice about me
curly hair and (so i've been told) my legs
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like to read, watch, listen and eat. Pretty wide interests on all of the above. I could be more specific but would rather talk about this stuff on a date than compile a list that your eyes glaze right over.
I will say that cheese is very important to me.
The six things I could never do without
my special people
insect repellent (mosquitos freakin love me)
#6 is cheese but i already mentioned that..
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Travel plans, both planned or fantasized. New art/curatorial projects to work on. How people save money in NYC. How infuriating most politicians are. What to cook for dinner. People I love.
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately most Fridays have been all about wine, seamless & netflix. Possibly a few beers a the bar across the street. I still like to go out but since my schedule isn't necessarily traditional have come to prefer doing so on other days of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I sing to my cats...I swear I'm not a total crazy cat lady but I'm not really ashamed of this. I would be singing anyway, it's just more fun to have them as an audience.
You should message me if
You feel like it.
You're not desperately seeking a girlfriend but are close to ready and open to the idea of something more than casual.
You can string together a few words to prove you actually looked at my profile for a second. Sorry to be blunt but I don't have have the energy to sift through all the "hey babys" and X-rated stuff. First world problem I know...
You aren't afraid to actually go on a date. I'm not. This site can be taxing and I can't do the messaging thing forever.
You want to support art in Brooklyn!!! :)
