My self-summary
I've been called an old-soul (though my body is starting to catch up to my soul's age, I guess).

I'd love to find somebody who would love a dinner out, maybe meeting some friends after for a drink or two, and then home. I'm not a person who loves partying all night these days. I'm happiest and most comfortable in a more intimate, quiet setting where I can actually talk to those I'm spending time with.

One of my old roommates used to comment that I'm ready to settle down and become a house-husband. In some ways I absolutely agree with her. I'm very happy in the kitchen and have a lot of trouble just cooking for one, subsequently I often either eat meals that are far larger than I should be eating, or have several days worth of leftovers in the fridge. If I still had cable at home Food Network would probably be one of my most watched channels.

I'm sure there's a lot more to say here, but, like many people, I'm never best when trying to just talk about myself without any real guidance as to what you want to know, so I'll cut it here before I ramble too much farther.
What I’m doing with my life
After many years of working in the theatre as a stage manager I've recently (as of 03/17) taken a step down a new path as the office manager for a Broadway producer, moving into the administrative side of the business. Whether or not this will be a permanent move remains to be seen, but for the time being I'm going to enjoy some of the perks of this change (full-time, year-round employment, a fairly consistent schedule with actual weekends, actually being able to schedule things like vacations and time off).
I’m really good at
random quotes and trivia. My brothers and I can have entire conversations in quotes from The Simpsons (mainly the earlier seasons, up to around season 10 or so) or Seinfeld. I'm a pretty good choice to have around for trivia nights.

I have no fear when it comes to driving large vehicles in Manhattan. So if you have to move and are afraid of driving a large van/truck through the city I'm good to have around.

I'm pretty capable in the kitchen. My old roommate often said that I'm training to be a housewife.
The first things people usually notice about me
Which people are we asking about? I get a lot of comments on my purple headphones from Starbucks baristas and people working the cash registers at various retail outlets.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: love the Harry Potter books, also have an appreciation for the L. Frank Baum Oz books, and the Chronicles of Narnia; I still laugh out loud while reading David Sedaris, even though I've read his collections multiple times.
Movies: I'm kind of all over the map. As long as the story is good and it is keeping me entertained I'm happy.
Television: Arrested Development, Modern Family, Strangers With Candy (Amy Sedaris is a comic genius, there must be some wonderful family gatherings between her and her brother), Raising Hope, South Park, classic Simpsons episodes (I have seasons 4-10 on DVD and don't really see much need for any others, except for maybe adding season 3 in someday), Seinfeld, and Food Network (though I no longer have cable so only see that when I'm at my parents' or on the road)
Music: again, kind of all over the map on this one
Food: I love to cook. My home cooking tends to stick more towards Italian, but that has just as much to do with the fact that pasta is cheap and extremely versatile as it does with just how much I love it.
Six things I could never do without
1. My family (even though they are back in Ohio they are still a pretty big part of my life)
2. My friends (both those in NYC and those who are scattered across the country)
3. Theatre (it's my job and my passion. At this point in my life I can't picture myself doing anything else)
4. Coffee
5. Entertainment (be it books, music, movies, television, or a game night with friends)
6. Ice cream (no matter how hard I try I always have to have ice cream in some form at least once a week, if not more)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
not a lot of time spent on this, but at the end of Evita there is a short little speech to let the audience know that her body disappeared for seventeen years after her death. Somebody should write a parody sequel to Evita, with some Weekend at Bernie's style hijinks.

Do the people who answer that the Earth is bigger than the sun in the questions here actually think that, or are they just being silly?

When will Amy and David Sedaris write another play that I can work on and thus become best friends with them?
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm working on a show then Friday night is just another work night, as I'll either have two shows on Saturday or rehearsal. Weekends are not really weekends for most of us in the theatre world.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I probably get happier than I should when the send button turns to blue (iMessage) on my phone when I go to text somebody for the first time.
You should message me if
for the same reason you would message anybody else on here. If something about my profile has caught your attention, be it something I've written, one of my photos, an answer that I've given to one of those questions, or any other reason.
The two of us
