My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an illustrator, violinist, and weird art history trivia enthusiast.

I love walking and hiking, and I've been spending as much time as I can in parks now that the weather's nice. On the weekends I throw brunch parties with some of my artist friends and we hang out and draw together.

If I thought I could get away with it, I'd set up a tent in the Met and live there.

I like to read archaeological journals, play board/card games or co-op video games, and collect tintypes.

INTJ.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work as a freelance illustrator and comic artist while spending most of my free time playing fiddle around the city. I also work part time for a medical office that treats student athletes.

When I need to unwind, I quilt. I'm currently making a quilt for my grandparents with fabrics to represent all the places they've lived over the years. I just enjoy making things, really.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've been playing violin for about twenty years now so I like to think I'm decent. I mainly play Irish folk music at jam sessions in pubs.

A friend who spent last Thanksgiving with me now calls me "the kitchen wizard." I make a wicked butternut squash risotto.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm more outspoken than they expected.

Also, my lipstick is really bright.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I've been reading a lot of China Mieville lately and early-1900s New York history. I'm also very into graphic novels - think Blacksad, The Arrival, and anything by Kerascoet. I'm so excited about Beaute finally being available in English.

Good media: The Prestige, Amelie, Practical Magic, Let the Right One In, Arsenic and Old Lace, anything by Rian Johnson, Secret of Kells, Millenium Actress, Princess Mononoke. I've also been watching the X-Files. I'm really into hockey (though I'm not a Rangers fan - bonus points if you can guess my team).

My iPod is mostly filled with traditional Irish folk music like Lúnasa, Dervish, and Chulrua.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The internet, caffeine, music, my violin, a sketchbook, my weird cat who I adopted from the bodega down the street.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How, for a city filled with so many people, New York is actually a difficult place to meet strangers because we're all so tuned into our own little world. So many of us move here to fulfill a dream, which is fantastic, but then we become so focussed on that single goal that we forget to stop and just connect to other people and other experiences along the way.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
My big nights out tend to be Tuesday and Saturday just due to music events - those nights I can usually be found playing fiddle in a pub somewhere. Fridays tend to be a little quieter, often spent dancing along to music on Pandora, cooking dinner with one of my roommates, and inking comics.

I'm learning to (badly) play pool. Anyone want to go practice with me?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Someone had to tell me who the Beatles were about two years ago. I'd never heard of them and had no idea they were a band.

Also, I've never skated despite being a hockey fan.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're an articulate, kind person who's passionate about something in their life and would like to go on a date.

Or alternately, you're looking for musician friends to play with, you're a fellow artist who wants to go gallery hopping with me, or you have a good book recommendation. I am interested in dating, but I'm always open to befriending cool folks as well.

Related: you have something you're passionate about and would like to share it. I enjoy watching people's faces light up when they talk about something that clearly means the world to them.
