Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Ashley.
(clue one on how I can tell you actually read my profile: that's my
name, not Liv_art)
I'm a performer. That right there sums me up in a nutshell.
I'm a dancer, a singer, an actress, a model, a specialty performer-
and whatever else I am depending on the day!
I'm a little silly but on the day to day I'm a laid-back person
who's fiercely devoted to my friends and my passions.
I'm a very passionate and outspoken person- from anything from
politics, women's rights- to food and fashion. Anything is a
talking point with me and I love discussions and debates.
I was born in Canada (eh?) but raised in Orange County (an Irvine
girl to be exact) currently I reside in North Hollywood, with what
seems like all the other aspiring dancers here in LA.
Art and culture are my life and my passion. I'm a dancer and artist
first- and need people in my life who are familiar or open to that
world and lifestyle. I live from gig to gig, booking to booking- I
work late nights at nightclubs and music festivals and then head to
rehearsals the next day. My schedule is hectic- but I love it. I
have more free time than you'd think and I spend most days at home
with my cat (yes I have a cat, and I love her) and friends while we
decide on what restaurants to try to go to and what movies to
I absolutely LOVE FOOD. Anything from five star fine dining to
greasy hole in the walls. Food is something I'm very passionate
about. Especially cultural food- I'm half asian and asian cuisine
is very important to me (real asian cuisine. no orange chicken or
sweet and sour pork here) and I need people around who are open to
those foods and experiences.
I went to school for theatre and am using that training now as a
working actor- I toy with the idea of going back to school for
degrees in other fields- but to be honest, it won't happen for a
few years if at all. If you're looking for gal with a wall full of
diplomas- then I'm not her. But I am fiercely knowledgeable and
intelligent- I just chose to go down a different path that didn't
involve sitting in classrooms for more years than I wanted to spend
I am VERY outspoken and political at times. I am known to be
somewhat of a feminist and liberal. Opinions on things such as
abortion, women's rights, birth control and gay marriage/rights are
extremely important to me- and to be honest are not something I
will ever be willing to compromise, for anyone. It's important that
people understand that about me up front.
I love just having a good time and going out and having fun.
Movies, dinner, dancing, museums, documentaries, music festivals,
theme parks, theatre...all of it! I'll try most things once and I
love adventure and traveling! I'm silly and I do silly things- I'm
a kid at heart with a fiercely driven personality and need someone
who can keep up with that!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a dancer, and a performer.
My passion is musical theatre. I currently work at various regional
theatres doing musicals such as Oklahoma, Spamalot, A Chorus Line
and whatever else comes along!
When I'm not singing and dancing broadway style I dance at upscale
nightclubs and EDM music festivals for steady cash, I also am
employed as a dance for a couple theme parks here in SoCal (Disney
and Universal) and am known to spend a lot of time hanging out with
friends at Disney in my free time.
I'm also a model and specialty performer (I dance, I eat fire- yes
really-, and anything else gigs need me for) and do a lot of
speciality gigs here and there for money and fun!
I'm an artistic type- my biggest nightmare is the image of me
sitting behind a desk at a 9-5 answering phones or typing up
reports. My path may not be one that leads to wealth and stability-
but it does lead to passion, fulfillment and fun. I have been lucky
enough to have never had to hold a job that doesn't involve
performing. I have never had to answer phones, fold clothes, sit at
a desk and I've only waited tables once to see how it was (i quit
shortly after) and I hope to keep it that way for a long time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding parking spots.
Finding the cutest panda photos in the interwebs.
Shopping online (i hate malls)
Playing Ubisoft JUST DANCE games (1,2,3, and 4...really, you won't
beat me. I've worked as a demo dancer for them. I know it all by
Looking at memes all day on the interwebs.
Eating asian food.
Eating fire (it's a skill)
Reading (i never leave home without my eReader)
and anything involving looking at cute animals and going "aww"
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes- I have extremely large green eyes that people refer to as
"cartoon or anime-like."
I am half asian and half caucasian so my ethnicity is a big wonder
for some people. It's always fun for people to guess what I am.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
As previously discussed Asian cuisine is my true love (real asian
food that is.)
Anything from taiwanese, japanese, korean, singaporean, malayasian,
sushi, chinese, catonese, all of it. please. I could spend all day
in Rowland Heights just eating.
I also love most all other food- I'm just a foodie and always open
to trying new things.
Movie-wise, obviously I love musicals and old classics. I normally
don't have time to go see new-releases in theatres so I see most
movies at home. I love comedies, romantic comedies, and more. I
hate horror films and gory films though. not my thing sorry!
Music, besides the obvious showtunes i LOVE edm, deep house, and
dubstep. it's an odd love, but it's addictive. I admit that I love
country music-and no it's not a guilty pleasure because I could
never feel guilty about how awesome it is,twang it up! I am not a
huge hip hop or rap fan- and could happily go without it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My friends.
2. My kitty cat
3. My ability to dance.
4. My makeup (i moonlight as a makeup artist)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My dreams and goals and how to make them become realities, and who
I can share those dreams with.
The galaxies, Recipes, destiny, fate, luck, casting directors,
auditions, what I'm going to eat for dinner, music, movies, girlish
also, pandas. I love them. they're freaking adorable.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Because my schedule is rather unpredictable there can be one of a
i may be dancing away at a upscale hollywood nightclub until 2:30
in the morning. (for work, not fun.)
sitting at home with dinner watching movies with my roomies.
rehearsing for an upcoming show.
sleeping and recovering from said rehearsal.
or going out and trying new restaurants or bars.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm very messy.
and I'm not ashamed of it.
and it's not changing. for anyone. never has.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're an artistic, creative, cultured type (or open to said
things) who wants enriching experiences and adventures with
if you know who Andrew Lloyd Webber, Rogers & Hammerstein are,
what the Tony awards are and what Les Miserables is *really*
supposed to sound like.
and most importantly if you know what dim sum, korean bbq, pho,
ramen, taiwanese shaved ice, and boba are and you enjoy them &
possibly would like to get some of the items mentioned above!
oh and I guess if you're someone looking for a potential friendship
or relationship too (no hook-ups or hook-up buddies here
*i'll give you a little hint: if you message me and clearly you
haven't read by profile, use the phrase "wad up" seriously, use a
copy and paste message, only say "hey, what's up wanna chat?" or
ask some odd question as a first impression...there's a good chance
you might want to rethink your message, cause honestly they won't
Also i really really really hate "small-talk"
***update: I'm going to be perfectly honest here (I don't like
wasting other people's time when it's not necessary) per my
experience: I DO take the okcupid match ratings into serious
consideration. Ive noticed that for the most part on my time on
this site the best experiences I have had (and one's I almost
always am interested in responding to/have dialogues with and have
the most in common with) have high match ratings (above 80%)
Not to deter anyone, but I wanted to throw that out there for the
record. Please don't take it personally, but I would hate wasting
anyone's time when there's other people they seem to be more suited
for here :-)
