Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I still have a great life! I could stop there; but, let me tell you
more: I am a native Oregonian and love Portland. I enjoy travel and
have had the opportunity to experience many different places on the
planet. While in college I found my passion, Improvisational
Theater. I have performed, taught and facilitated this craft for 25
years and it still feels new and challenging. There is no better
feeling than to make a living doing what you most love. There are
people who say, "sure, follow your dream; but, you won't make a
living." That is just not true! I have built some great friendships
and get along with at least half of my family members. I believe in
the power of humor and in the importance of being supportive and
honest. I believe in purpose. I'm not a member of any specific
religion. I would say that I have created my own and my belief
system is an amalgam of several different teachings. My keys to a
happy life are: Surround myself with positive and supportive
people, Be able to laugh at myself, Be wise (yet generous) with my
money and Don't blame other people for the choices that I make. I
feel the only thing missing in my life is someone special to share
it with (I've noticed a lot of people say that in their profile). I
love smart, biting humor and am looking for someone who loves to
laugh and can make fun of themselves and is prepared to make fun of

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spend time exploring my craft, laughing with friends and getting
to know my new dog. I get to create and collaborate with some very
talented and unique people, which keeps me feeling young and

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Friendship, listening and I have a quick wit. I get a safe driver
discount from my insurance company.

The funniest movie of all time is "Spinal Tap" with the audio
commentary on. Modern Family is a very funny show. The best drama
of all time is the second Battlestar Galactica (and my friends make
fun of me for thinking that). I also seem to be drawn to shows
where the hero is someone you would want to stay away from in real
life, i.e. Dexter, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, The Sopranos, etc. I like
British TV, especially Downton Abbey and their version of The
Office. I watch Wonders of the Universe on the science channel. I
read fiction and non-fiction. I'm currently reading The Twelve by
Justin Cronin and Quiet, a book about the power of introverts. I
like most food, except coconut.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Performing on stage and creating laughter
Supportive friends and family
My dog (see photo above)
Being active, i.e. walks, runs, gym time
Having the confidenence in who I am to make mistakes
Having deep and honest conversations that, at some point, break
into laughter then goes back to deep and honest.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

should I get to the airport and general funny stuff.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If not doing a show or out seeing a show/movie, I am home watching

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have a passion in your life and want someone supportive and
funny to share it. You are confident and love who you are; but,
realize that you never stop being a student of life. You are not
afraid to be vulnerable and make mistakes. OR, you need to practice
your messaging skils.
