My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a woman who several years ago looked at her life, wasn't happy with it and went about changing it. I had just finished grad school and had a good job but I realized I wasn't doing what I loved. I didn't have to search for what to do next, I knew it all along. I went back to what I tried not to do for a long time: act. I called up a conservatory, started a training program and haven't looked back since. Well, the graduate degree gave me the ability to have a job that wasn't waiting tables and that I like, but I am an artist and specifically a comedian. I don't perform stand-up (I get that question a lot). I have performed and taught improv comedy (think Whose Line Is It Anyway?), generally get cast in comedic scripted roles and I write and direct sketch comedy. I have also directed drama but I am pulled to comedy. I find the funny in most things. By the way, when I say I decided to do the thing I kept trying not to do, understand that it doesn't mean I am the person who always dreamed of being famous. I have been acting since I was a kid making up plays and performing them with my best friend across the street. I took acting classes, voice classes etc. I just gave it up in an attempt to be normal (as I like to joke), but it didn't work. So here I am. Important to know: while I'm funny, I definitely have a serious side. I'm passionate about what I do, and the people in my life. I also have comapssion and empathy for others. Yes, I need someone who has a sense of humor like mine but also understands that I'm not ms. comedian all the time. I need someone who likes to show me they care, be there for me when I cry, wants to make it all better for me, even though they know they can't, and undersands that in the end we both want the same: someone who understands and loves you for who you are. Someone who laughs at you because they love you. I will stick by you, push you to be your best and call you on it when you aren't doing that. I hope you will do the same for me, because I need that person in my life. An honest, geniune, good guy.

So I suppose I can write what I just did about me but I also thought the perspective of a male friend would help too. So, I sent out an email to a few male friends asking them to describe me. This is just a little of what I got from the husband of a close friend:

"A sociable people person who is the girl next door. A modern woman with good taste who loves to travel, discover new things, eat, drink and generally be merry. Bold, brave, no bullshit, a big-hearted adventure-seeker with a lust for life, open-minded, caring giver but not a sappy pushover, creative and perceptive but nonpretentious and nonjudgmental, a true trustworthy dependable friend; seriously smart and worldly despite the occasional blonde moment :)"

That's all folks.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm creating things that are funny. I am an actor, director and writer who also has a good day job. But what I'm really doing with my life is finding the humor.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Tinkering with things and figuring out what is wrong and how to make it work better. Good thing I'm a director.

Making people feel at ease around me.

Finding the inappropriate meaning in everything, even when I'm not trying.

Challenging myself.

My laugh and my sense of humor, and my eyes. I have green eyes. I know, pretty hot huh?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I go see a lot of theatre, improv comedy and movies. But I'm looking for someone to introduce me to different things too.

I read a lot of historical non-fiction. Currently reading "1491: The History of the Americas before Columbus" and "The Power of Habit", and just finished "The Girls of Atomic City". Frequently reading plays, memoirs, The New Yorker and Food and Wine magazine.

Movies: I love movies, want to see more than I do and like discussing them. I'm an actor, what can I say? But I also just like your garden variety funny, fluff movie too. I don't think great detail needed to be discussed about The Hangover. Other than whether or not you noticed the "3 Men and a Baby" reference the first time you saw the movie or not.

Food: I like to cook. I've also become more of a a foodie, I hate to admit it, but it's true. I'm not a food snob, I just appreciate well made food that is interesting. That doesn't mean I never eat at Chipotle though. But I'm also gluten-free, not by choice, so that makes it harder.

Music: I admit to listening to whatever is on the radio. But I want someone to introduce me to more than that because I love music.
The six things I could never do without

I sing in the car. Full on singing. No really, full on singing. If you've driven past me you have probably laughed.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to find someone who's vivacious, creative and goofy at times. I am a genuine person who hates pretension and snobbery. You should also email me if you have glasses, are quick witted, smart and funny. I like those sorts.
