My self-summary
I am a woman who can hang out with the boys but also love to spend time with my girlfriends. I'm very independent, career-focused and love a good adventure. I work in a commercial theatre producing office and have a small business in the health field on the side. I'm a jeans and a t-shirt, dive bar kind of girl but that doesn't mean I don't take care of myself.

Random story from my past to prove I can laugh at myself -
In college, I was in my university's dance company. Every year we had the cheesiest Holiday show ever. My junior year I was cast as the back end of a tap dancing pony named Tony the Pony. I had to do an entire tap dance bent over. I hated it but Tony turned out to be such a hit that I became a minor celebrity on campus. At least it makes for a good story now. :)

I'm looking for someone who can challenge and inspire me. Someone who is compassionate, empathetic, and values relationships (not just romantic relationships, but family, friends, coworkers, etc). An appreciation for the arts is a must. If anything, I need someone who will willingly go to and enjoy plays and musicals. I like men who are career and goal-driven. Politics are important to me and will not consider dating a conservative - this is a deal breaker.

At the end of the day, I'm looking for someone I can go out and enjoy New York with - think museums, live music, aimlessly walking and discovering new neighborhoods... If you have a dog, that's a plus.
What I’m doing with my life
Kicking ass and taking names.
I’m really good at
making people laugh, having dance parties on my balcony, driving a manual transmission, not taking life too seriously, being honest, being really intimidating when I want to (especially at work). I'm not good at cooking, so hopefully you are.
The first things people usually notice about me
my eyes and my smile. then probably my laugh
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: "The Book" by Alan Watts, To Kill a Mockingbird, Memoirs of a Geisha, The Great Gatsby

Movies: Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Boondock Saints, Pride and Prejudice (A&E version)

TV Shows: Dexter, Louie, 30 Rock, The Office (although it went down-hill post-Steve Carell), Pretty Little Liars (guilty pleasure), Sex and the City

Music: i like lots and lots of different kinds of music. off the top of my head... The Black Keys, Mumford & Sons, Lord Huron, The Lone Bellow, Animal Collective, RHCP, Girl Talk, long-time No Doubt fan

Food: Italian, Thai, Mexican, sushi, tiramisu. I order French toast 99.9% of the time when at brunch. So far nothing comes even close to touching Ovelia's (in Astoria) Greek yogurt stuffed French toast.
Six things I could never do without
Besides the obvious...

my iPhone
coffee, coffee, and more coffee
the arts
I spend a lot of time thinking about
where life might take me next
On a typical Friday night I am
Any number of things - seeing a show, hanging with friends, sometimes just staying in and recovering from a crazy week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I loose my shit every time I hear "Party in the USA" by Miley Cyrus. Fucking love that song.
You should message me if
If you're up for taking me on adventures (both in and out of the city) and going along with mine, are politically and socially liberal, are up for a friendly debate about any given subject (I have an opinion on just about everything but am able to keep an open mind on most topics) and are looking for something more substantial than a one-night stand.
The two of us
