I'm looking for my last first date. I've never been married. No kids. No drama. I'd rather stay single than be mismatched.
I'm a bad yinzer. I grew up a heathen in the holy city of football and beer. 17 years ago, I got out as soon as I finished college. I've lived on both coasts, studied abroad, and I'm on my 4th career.
I studied Architecture, practiced residential design & urban planning for about 8 years. When the housing/construction marked collapsed, I got my MFA in film, and moved to Los Angeles. Now I find myself back in my hometown.
I used to want things. A house. Family of my own. Things don't always work out the way you want. I'm now now way off the map . Instead of things, I have a life and work that I love and being parent is now at the bottom of my list.
I am definitely the creative type. Not the "write on walls in crayon" creative type. I am more the engineer/art-director/design-nazi who will spend 2 hours lighting a can of Raid™ or a bowl of dog food for a commercial. Yes, I have done both of those.
As much as I like animals in general, I am definitely more of a cat-person. If had to say what my "type" was, I would definitely say other cat-people.
I have done more than my fill of chasing. Please be willing to get caught.
In my spare time, I volunteer for Habitat for Humanity working on renovating homes. I spent the first half of my career drawing houses. Now I'm learning how to actually build them.
I'm also house shopping.
Movies...there are too many. My favorites are Pleasantville, Amelie, Devil's Backbone, Punch-Drunk Love, Death to Smoochy. I still rent DVDs from Netflix. I love a good ghost story.
Shows... Right now I am going through Master of None, Doyle's War, and catching up on Breaking Bad. Looking forward to the new season of GoT.
Music...I listen to a lot of ambient Electronica, Modern Classical, and SEAL. Yeah. Lots of SEAL.
Food...Generally speaking, My favorite things are toasted, roasted, seared, poached, and sautéed. I eat meat. Fresh vegetables are awesome, but I don't touch anything Vegetarian/Vegan if it's pretending to be something that isn't.
