My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
the first thing i should tell you is that i'm basically Liz Lemon (the second thing i should tell you is if i did in fact ever meet Tina Fey in person i would probably need to be scraped off the floor). i love and am highly competent at my job and a bit of a workaholic, i have mildly neurotic tendencies, strange habits and of course, continue to work on my night cheese.

i am in love with beautiful, old objects. i can most often be found haunting construction sites for building materials, picking up weird things from the side of the road and repeatedly searching craigslist under "industrial" and "vintage". i must be restrained from spending all my money on old dusty shit. i keep some and fix up and sell the rest.

space and how we interact in it on a domestic and civic level is a continued inspiration and interest for me in my life and my work.

i'm an introverted extrovert. certain social situations exhaust me but i manage to move through many different circles of lovely people (mostly of the art / community activism / animal rescue sort). being part of a community is really important to me.

i tend to have dirt under my nails more often than not. i'm more at home in a hardware store than a mall.

sometimes i feel like making art is better than sex (but not sex with you, you're obviously the exception here).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
working artist. i manage a large studio at an art center. currently teaching at various institutions in the area. maintaining a small business. in between that, i continue my own studio research.

I've moved past the "starving" part of being an artist, fortunately. that I'm able to make a good living doing what I love is something I try to never take for granted.

things that i have made me feel like an adult:
1. becoming an NPR member,
2. carrying things like mini packs of tissues and ibuprofen on my person at all times,
3. realizing i sound like my mother when i order at a drive thru.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
close observation.
reading body language.
finding the right word.
remembering phone numbers.
converting fahrenheit to celsius and back again.
applying eyeshadow.
icing the angry tendons in my right elbow.
not using capital letters.
witty banter.
making your mom jokes.

actually, i'm pretty bad at making your mom jokes. but the rest are generally true.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
my hair. it changes color a lot. i find this useful, people tend to remember me. also my white glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
i find really long lists fairly useless in this section, so here are some music that has meant a lot of me at various times in my life. i think you should be able to get a good idea of what i'm about from this.

Tori Amos, 1990s. words cannot describe my obsession with her in my teen years. her music got me through a lot, in particular Under the Pink. her piano chops and inventive songwriting have been sadly absent in her work from about 2000 on, but her first four albums always remind me what was and could have been.

Peter Gabriel, 80s and early 90s. i love him because his music intensely emotional and he's not afraid to be vulnerable (something rare with male musicians, i've found). SO is more or less a perfect album. i've seen him only once live but it blew my mind.

Joni Mitchell (mid-late 70s). her most inventive period and probably least heard and least appreciated. Hejira is my favorite album and was an artistic and musical touchstone for me starting in my early 20s. it remains my favorite album and i listen to it about once a year, as a special treat.

The Smiths / Morrissey (any and all). don't know how i didn't listen to them until i was in my late 20s. i know i'm not alone when i say There is A Light That Never Goes Out is one of the most romantic songs i can think of. (also under this umbrella is Joy Division, New Order, and most new wave)

movies: top three: Metropolis, The Double Life of Veronique and Ghost Dog. in love with Kieslowski, Jarmusch and Altman. big on atmosphere and little or no plot.

my favorite book is To Kill A Mockingbird. which is an English major answer, i know. i also have a foolish abiding adolescent love for John Irving. sad dystopian novels are my kyptonite.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
a home.
a studio.
my family and friends.
Calvin and Pearl, my greyhounds.
rooster sauce.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what part of my house to renovate / fix next, and can i learn to be an electrician from YouTube.

income inequality and poverty.

education policy and how to best support public schools.

what i'm going to write next.

how i should probably go to the gym today.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
at home, with my dogs, either watching horrific reality tv or home renovation shows, or working in my studio. occasionally i can be persuaded out, but that's generally for Saturday and Sunday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
i have tons of grey hair and cannot bring myself to care about it.

i'm obsessed with advice columns.

when i see the symbol for pounds ("lbs") i always mentally say "libs". i have said it out loud a few times. it's kind of embarrassing.
