The bare essentials:
Working in visual art world, artist/designer, and teacher.
Personality traits: Can't blab on about this myself as I am of Irish decent, actually born there, and way to self-deprecating to be tooting my own horn.
So I will quote friends and family. They are experts on me...PHD level!
Charismatic, creative, sarcastic, witty, sensitive, loyal/good friend, loving, sensual, open minded, smart, busy?! Eh "busy"ok, seems I'm spreading myself thin. ohh....and a good teacher.
Enough! I am already cringing. Nuns ringing in my ear. “Self praise is no praise at all” Did I mention, confident? Hah!
I'll just take it for granted that nobody lists the bad personality traits.
Trying to make art but ending up designing instead.
Finding time to be with people I love.
Working on a masters and it's hard but loving .
Love the whole mod era, The Jam, Ramones, The Clash.
Contemporary: amy Winehouse, Beck, lily Allen, Gomez, Blur, Gorillaz, Spiritualized, Nick Cave, Paul Weller. Air, Sigor Ros, Zero 7, Lauren Hill, Duffy,
All the old swing stuff and jazz divas, opera, classical.
Don't have a TV but watch online: Curb your Enthusiasm, The Wire, Boardwalk Empire, Arrested Development, Mad Men, Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia. 30 Rock, The Office. Mad into Breaking Bad at the moment, flying thru it on netflix.
Food: Indian, thai, italian, french, spanish...not Irish, just my Irish. I love to cook!
Books and movies..way too much to list.
My book project.
Lesson plans, teaching.
How to create interesting conceptual art that still has a sense of humor and bows to beauty.
My family over the pond, and how much I miss them.
Where to travel to next!

Making my bed everyday makes me feel better coming home.
I love the smell of gas pumping into a car or boat.
Oh and if you are holding up a fish, showing off your motorcycle or pumped up truck, or standing half naked in front of a mirror, I'm delighted for you you have interests you enjoy, but sorry don't message me.
Oh and if you are in your 20s....yada yada yada see above.
( This list keeps growing, maybe I'm getting online dating bitterness, I think it's a real thing)
