My self-summary
Illustrator, violinist, and all-around unashamed dork. I moved to New York five years ago for art school and never left.

INTJ, for those who are into Meyer-Briggs. Fairly accurate!
What I’m doing with my life
Drawing, trying to perfect my butternut squash risotto recipe, learning to tango (and falling over a lot), shooting pool, yelling about hockey, and getting lost in Manhattan no matter how frequently I look up directions on my phone.

I'm also trying to teach my pet mice to do tricks, but I suspect it may be a lost cause.
I’m really good at
I've been playing violin for about twenty years now. I like to think I'm decent! I mainly play Cape Breton and Irish folk music, and I play at jam sessions several nights a week in pubs around the city. Also art, as it's my job, and all manner of bizarre art and design history trivia.

A friend who came to my Thanksgiving dinner this past year now refers to me as "the kitchen wizard."
The first things people usually notice about me
If we're on the subway, that I'm discreetly trying to sketch them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The tower of books beside my bed is reaching unstable heights - if you think we have similar literary tastes or if there's a book that really spoke to you, please send me a recommendation! Favorite authors: Haruki Murakami, Neil Gaiman, and China Mieville. I also love graphic novels such as Blacksad, Persepolis, and Ava's Demon.

I enjoy action/adventure movies (Diehard, Skyfall), dramas (The Prestige, Amelie), and animation (Secret of Kells, Millenium Actress, Mary and Max, Princess Mononoke). I'm also a little bit in love with Rian Johnson's movies. I can't wait to see what he makes next.

My iPod is mostly filled with traditional Irish folk music like Lúnasa, Dervish, and Chulrua but I mainline pop music off Pandora when I'm painting.
The six things I could never do without
The internet, caffeine, a creative drive, music, my violin, good company.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The next personal project I'll take on! I just finished a book of street fashion illustrations; now I'm working on a comic and learning how to make violins.

How much I want to adopt a dog.

Also 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
If I'm out, then at a gallery opening or an Irish music jam session; if I'm home, probably 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
Coming from an art school where our proudest sports victory was having tied another art school seven years ago in a swim meet, I never expected to care much about sports, but this year I've gotten really into watching hockey. Go figure?

If you're also into hockey, we should talk about playoffs - tell me who you're pulling for!
I’m looking for
  • Guys and girls who like bi girls
  • Ages 21–32
  • Located anywhere
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
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.

You're an articulate, kind person who's passionate about something in their life and would like to go on a date.

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.
