My self-summary
I'm an artist blessed/plagued with an analytical mind. This often results in my left brain engaging in epic face-to-the-dirt battles with my right brain for dominance. Luckily, my sanity emerges unscathed and inspired.
What I’m doing with my life
Pursuing an arts career which is financially supported by my desk job (for now!). I get my workouts training in Muay Thai (I used to play on a dodgeball league- now I miss it...however, muay thai's so much more badass!) I further my education by following a custom made home-curriculum. I learn anything from Spanish, to copyright laws, children's photography, to fire spinning. Drawing is an on-again-off-again part of my life. I'm a typically a-typical person. I love my life. I'm lucky to have a life worth loving - so I do.
I’m really good at
Getting the job Done!
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and my laugh. I'm told that my positive energy is infectious.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like sci-fi, fantasy, & fight movies. My books trend that way too although I normally have my nose stuck in a script.

Octavia Butler, Neil Gaiman

All Miyazaki, Tarantino, Christopher Nolan, Tony Jaa, Kung Fu Hustle, Old Boy, Princess Bride, Birdcage

The six things I could never do without

Good laughs
Provocative thought
Unique Experiences
My technology - phone, laptop, dslr
Scintillating touch (and the subsequent results ;-) )

I'm a woman of simple pleasures as long as those pleasures are of quality.

(I would say Drive, Focus, & GOALS except they seem unavoidable. I can't fathom how to live without them. It's ingrained into my Type A life.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Most of my brain power goes toward game-planning the next steps of my career trajectory.
On a typical Friday night I am
There is no typical Friday in my realm. Some days I'm onstage performing in a show, others are for family functions, then there are some spent socializing/drinking at a friend's house. Most Fridays, I find myself indoors preparing for a shoot or some other delightful event the next day.
On this particular Fri night, I'll be in rehearsal and then preparing my marketing campaign for an upcoming film festival in Vegas.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
...shall be shared with trusted people who are an ongoing part of my world.
