My self-summary
I'm an MFA student in the Technical Theatre program at UIUC.

I'm focused on what I want to do with my career, but the rest of my life is an open book. I am so comfortable with who I am and what I'm doing, I'd just like to have someone beside me, keeping me company while they pursue what they're passionate about. A partner with whom I can provide and give support, but mostly just laugh with and enjoy life.

I love me some margaritas and food. Any food. Can't get enough. Yay food.

I might be a goofball, but I know when it's time to be serious.
What I’m doing with my life
Ever since I was a kid I was theatrical; naturally I wanted to be an actor. However, I found carpentry to be an amazing outlet for my creativity. I’ve focused my life on technical theatre with an emphasis on scene design and technology.

I've had some amazing professional experiences, but the timing is right for me to discipline myself so that I can run the scene shop at a regional theatre or maybe a university.
I’m really good at
Working with people. I'm a great team player and try to make sure everybody has a positive experience.

I'm also pretty handy and enjoy doing craft projects. Especially recycled crafts.
The first things people usually notice about me
My glasses and big nose, but my humor isn't far behind.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
When I read, I typically read plays. Some of my favorites are Proof, The Rabbit Hole, The Visit, Fences, Company.

I like almost every Batman movie, Shawshank Redemption, Green Mile, Hayao Miyazaki movies (Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, and many more), Moulin Rouge, Amelie, Romeo + Juliet (yes, the Leo version).

My Pandora station consists of Mika, Jack Johnson, Ingrid Michaelson, Regina Spektor, the Scissor Sisters, Kate Nash, Lilly Allen, and Eric Hutchison. And Lady Gaga is my guilty pleasure.

I love food. In general.

Some of my favorite plays/musicals are Assassins, Next to Normal, Company, Seussical the Musical, Proof, The Fantasticks, The Drowsy Chaperone, Death of a Salesman, Oedipus, and a number of Shakespeare's plays.
The six things I could never do without
1. Art
2. Good food
3. Cats
4. Dancing
5. Family
6. Humor
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I have a lot of musicals in my head, so I usually end up singing lines from shows. I also just sing about what I'm doing, much like Jess from New Girl.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching a movie. I enjoy going out with friends, but nothing beats drinking with a bowl of popcorn and Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I fold my underwear. It's how I count how many more days I have until I need to do laundry. :/
You should message me if
You wanna get some serious grub. Please don't ever be bashful about eating. Drinks or coffee are cool too.
