My self-summary
Take me out and show me around! I'm a fun date.

I've lived all over the world and am currently living in Atlanta, where I have a ton of family and an awesome / creative / challenging job. But if you need to know more:

Global thinker
Big-picture dreamer
Day-to-day realist
ENTJ personality type, ambitious
Knows what she wants and makes it clear
Creative thinker, talented artist
Adventurous traveler and eater
Loyal, compassionate and warm-hearted
Open-minded, intense, conscientious
Friends and family-oriented
Equal parts casual and fancy
Slightly cheesy, slightly bossy
Can hang with the guys
Not just a sense of humor, but reasonably funny too
Urban dweller, but with a touch of that Southern Charm

.....And apparently verbose.

In a nutshell: I'm the type of girl you'd want your mom to meet. And then she would tell you that you'd finally gotten it right.
What I’m doing with my life
Continuing an exceptionally great life in a new city! I work as a quality control project manager in a UX/creative department for a multi-billion dollar global company. I'm also a very talented artist separate from that. I'm enjoying things as they come and generally having fun.
I’m really good at
Booking crazy-awesome trips and adventures, making art, interior design, making virtually anything look good, real estate hunting, drinking, cooking, cuddling, speed-reading, being really competitive, networking, throwing dinner parties, having fun, and constantly winning Cards Against Humanity.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my face! It's a nice face with pretty blue-green eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
MUSIC: The Beatles, Radiohead, Tom Waits, The Black Keys, Simon & Garfunkel, Velvet Underground, Queen, Nick Drake, The White Stripes, Pixies, R.E.M., Led Zeppelin, The Smiths, Johnny Cash, The Kingston Trio, and literally hundreds more. That said, I'm always looking for a concert buddy!

LITERATURE: I read A LOT, so I won't bore you with all the details. Everything from Lester Bangs to Russian classics and Southern Gothics, with a penchant for the non-fiction essays of George Orwell and David Foster Wallace.

MOVIES/SHOWS: Almost Famous, The Big Lebowski, The Thomas Crown Affair, Good Will Hunting, Pulp Fiction, E.T., Blade Runner, Star Wars (THE REAL ONES, and I'm also counting The Force Awakens here), Finding Forrester, Empire Records, The Royal Tenenbaums, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Fight Club, Game of Thrones, Broad City, Six Feet Under, Fargo, True Blood, Freaks and Geeks, The Walking Dead, Peaky Blinders, Orange is the New Black, Silicon Valley.

FOOD: No onions for me, ever (and yes, I really mean that); but, I'm cool with most everything else and fairly adventurous.
The six things I could never do without
Family/friends, music, an incredibly comfortable bed, hot water, travel, and probably a smart phone.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All the places I want to go and the things I'm going to do when I get there, how to maximize the benefits of virtually everything I come across, architecture and urban planning, aesthetics and taste levels, new ideas, sex, and how much rush hour in Atlanta sucks.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends and getting into various degrees of ridiculousness, enjoying good food at a new restaurant (or an old haunt), or just relaxing at home and watching Netflix, reading, or making art. I mix it up. Variety is the spice of life, folks!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nice try, NSA!
You should message me if
You're smart, employed and ambitious about it, have a sense of humor, aren't too sensitive, love to travel, and/or like having fun and trying new things!

And just to be honest: I'm not looking for "casual", "no strings attached" guys that want to "hang out" and/or "Netflix and chill". Those playboy types are so deeply boring and predictable. I want something meaningful, adventurous, sexy, and fun. I love it when a man knows what he wants in a woman and is confident enough to actually ask her out on a date.

...Unless you have a giant Duck Dynasty beard. Gotta draw the line there.
