Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello there! I'm a Midwestern native who recently located to LA
after having lived in Chicago for over 13 years. I love traveling,
my two rescue pups, spending time with friends, when I can with
family, and I try to read & write every day.
I'm an improviser/actor/writer/comedian - I perform regularly and
work hard at my craft. I write a ton and always have a lot of
projects going at the same time.
Working hard at being pretty green. Was really green in Chicago but
out here in LA, I would imagine that others probably put me to
shame. I do try to eliminate the use of plastic. That is a tough
Blam. That's me, right? You know me already just from reading those
three short tiny pieces of information. Oh, online dating, you
sassy minx. Just message me already. :) I'm too deep of a thinker
to be summarized in a dating profile.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I earn my bread and butter doing corporate communications
workshops. It's awesome and I can't imagine ever being in a 9 to 5
again (I used to be a consultant). I get to travel around the world
and help people figure out how to use improv philosophies and
skills in their everyday jobs. In the past two years, I've been to
Dusseldorf twice, London twice, Amsterdam, Vancouver, Shanghai,
Sydney, Colombia, SA and Kansas City, MO. Traveling to new places
when clients foot the bill is the best.
Taking my pups hiking around my neighborhood or Griffith Park is a
great way to spend an afternoon in my opinion. I try to get hikes
in around client calls, classes, rehearsals, shows, life,
I have been traveling so much for work I'm looking forward to
getting back to LA and learning my neighborhood and meeting new
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Articulating an idea
Finding my way back once I walk somewhere
Fast forwarding through scary parts of TV/Movies
Remembering to use my reusable bags at the grocery
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I'm terrible at picking favorites. Whenever people play that desert
island game I literally get anxiety because I can't choose
I do have one favorite song, and that's it. Everything else I love
I'm reading more non-fiction, but I like to escape with a book, not
get world-weary about how humans do dumb things. I gave up on the
third in the Stieg Larsson trilogy - whew. Couldn't get through it.
I have a bunch of books on my kindle app on my iPad and I bounce
around on them: Wanderlust, The Psychopath Test, Wired For Story,
The Bone Season, 1Q84 are a few.
I watch a lot of TV and movies as I write a lot of it, and aspire
to, but mostly because I like it. Recently finished Broadchurch -
amazing. Starting Rectify and so far it's good.
I'll eat almost any type of food - I'm always game to try something
new. About three years ago I gave up beef and pork, and I am really
picky about the food that I'm consuming, especially meat. I don't
eat factory farmed meat or dairy. Probably 99.9% of the time (when
I travel it gets hard). That being said, at any restaurant I can
always find something to eat. I'm not a person who imposes my
food-beliefs on others.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Because I can't pick favorites, instead this section is now:
The Six Things That Happened To Me This Morning:
1. I woke up really early because I was still on another time zone
from traveling. I went back to sleep.
2. In my back-to-sleep dream: I whitewater river rafted with Kate
Middleton twice after being airlifted in the raft to the closed
course by a chopper, got a ride home from Brad Pitt and
3. My pups gave me morning kisses and cuddles.
4. I had a conference call with a client for work in two months'
5. I did a load of laundry from traveling for a week.
6. I still haven't eaten breakfast and I'm starving... but I'm
re-working my OKC profile. (writing is rewriting)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why is it so dusty in LA? I thought Chicago was dusty. But this is
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably unaware that it is Friday. I'm working, studying, doing
things around the house and then I'll realize "It's a typical
Friday night, quick - what am I doing so I can write it in that one
section on OKCupid."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not allowed to watch scary movies. But I do.*
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are between the ages of 30-45. Also if you want to have a
normal conversation. If you are normal. By normal I mean not
totally bizarre. And by not totally bizarre, I think you know who
you are. And if you are generally nice. Nice is good.
I like chatting quickly and then meeting people (if there's
interest) instead of the incessant back and forth messaging. What I
like most is when people read my entire profile to see if they
should message me. Also, I get a good laugh if your screen name is
dirty. And by laugh, I mean I will laugh at you.
