To summarize - I love life. The glass is half-full, if not brimming
over. I have a lot of passion, and put that into everything I do. I
love arts and attending art events. I want to explore and would
love someone to explore with me.
However, I don't want children (which I know can be a deal breaker)
and I have dogs and cats (would prefer someone who likes both, but
doesn't have either).
What I’m doing with my life
I work with the IT learning group at my company. I teach new and
existing technologies to people, sometimes developing the training
curriculum. I just went back to school to pursue a BS in
Organizational Leadership and Learning Development. I've been doing
some form of IT for about 18 years, but got my start in the music
industry. Outside of work I volunteer for Junior Achievement. I
also was accepted to the NeXt! program with the Fund for the Arts
this year. I volunteer for the Louisville Visitors Center and lead
walking tours of downtown Louisville. I am training to run my 3rd
marathon, and have a regular yoga practice. I walk my dogs 4-5
times a week, and love to go out with my friends and enjoy what
Louisville has to offer. I love travelling, in the States and out
of the country.
I’m really good at
a lot of things. I learn new things quickly, and am good at
teaching things to others. I knit crazy good (I can make
sweaters!). I am good at yoga and improving/managing my own
fitness, as well as inspiring others. I like to listen as well as
share. I am fairly balanced and self-aware. Ooooh, I just rhymed
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair, my eyes, my mouth. When I speak, the fact that I'm
welcoming and can find something where we can connect.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read, so it's hard to choose a favorite, but my favorite
this past year was The Night Circus and 2 of my favorite authors
are Neil Gaiman and Haruki Murakami. I also subscribe to
Indiespensables from Powells Bookstore in Portland and it has
introduced me to authors/books I never would have selected on my
own - I love exploring!
Music...wow, I love music. I still love the hardcore/punk/riot
grrrl I listened to in high school, but have broadened my tastes to
include bands from Ben Folds Five to Brandi Carlisle. I'm about to
go see Frightened Rabbit and The National. I like to just go see
shows at places like Zanzabar and take a risk.
Movies - I love action/adventure/car chase movies, foreign movies,
and horror/suspense. Not a big rom/com fan, but have been known to
like a few.
I love food. I love local food. I'll eat almost anywhere and try
almost anything (not ready to try liver though). My current faves
are Rye and Decca. I especially like going to Decca on Monday
nights, having a light dinner and then enjoying jazz in the cellar.
The six things I could never do without
Pets, books, music, yarn, art, outdoors, fitness.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, maybe enjoying one of the Trolley Hops.
You should message me if
If you love life and love exploring. If you're not afraid to try
new things and you think the glass is half full.
If you message me, be sure to have correct spelling, punctuation,
etc. It matters.
And don't message me if you're looking for some sort of creepy bi
action or if you think homosexuality is a sin. You really wouldn't
like my group of friends.
