My self-summary
I've been described as artistic, intelligent and playful with an irreverent sense of humor (almost became a cartoonist at one time). My close friends would tell you that I'm open minded and flexible, good at listening, spontaneous, and totally supportive. Love stimulating conversation on topics from the mainstream to the eclectic, plus I'm a news junkie.

I'm seeking the kind of woman who knows a little bit about a lot of different things... intelligent, wise, affectionate, articulate... down to earth and independent. She enjoys the arts, theater, loves film, has an interest in current events & politics, and relishes lively conversation.

Enjoy theatre, museums, the Hollywood Bowl, improv comedy and more. A big movie buff, crazy about the Getty museum (not just for the art, but for its architecture, the views, and people watching). Spiritual rather than religious. Politically liberal. Not big on sports, but I enjoy the Clippers along with watching the Olympics.
What I’m doing with my life
I originally studied to be an illustrator, made a turn and went into the entertainment industry. Ten years ago I transitioned into marketing, and now retired. I've returned to painting. It's wonderful to recapture the passion I had years ago and see that my gift never left me. Considering going professional by next year.
I’m really good at
Painting in acrylics and watercolor, drawing caricatures of my friends, and candid photography. Love researching subjects on the internet (which was my favorite job in the film biz - working on the original X-Files Movie).
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes and my smile. People have often given me compliments on my voice and said I should have gone into TV.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Biographies (just finished Alan Cumming's bio of growing up on a Scotish farm, a marvelous read), books on history, whatever catches my interest. Fascinated with the work of Malcolm Gladwell... everyone should read his 'David & Goliath'.

I love movies - a bit of everything. Favorites include The Big Short, Pulp Fiction, Birdman, Whiplash, Groundhog Day, The King's Speech, It Happened One Night, Inception, Hotel Budapest, LA Confidential, The Descendants, Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (the Swedish original version), Paris je t'aime, Good Fellas, The Best Years of Our Lives, The Searchers, Network, La Cage aux Folles, Strangers On a Train, Spirited Away, Akira, and Seven Samurai. Music for me is Bach to Beatles. Springsteen, Lady Gaga, 60s & 70s rock, Scott Joplin rags, Saint-Saens, Bowie, ELO and Randy Newman.

Love John Oliver & Bill Maher (I wish Jon Stewart hadn't retired); police procedurals . . . Game of Thrones, Westworld, and Better Call Saul. The Turner Classic Movies channel. NPR.

Food... I'm a vegetarian who still eats lots of other things - Thai, Italian, Chinese, Mexican, and seafood. If you'd like to have a hamburger or steak, go right ahead, that's fine with me.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It wouldn't be private anymore if I wrote it here, would it?
