My self-summary
I like art, fashion, culture and free forms of expression. I am a very down to earth femme who enjoys after 5 cocktails and dinner just as much as a simple conversation while sharing beer in a brown paper bag. I love traveling and the experience of life in countries, cities and towns as well as the history of such places. My most memorable experience thus far was studying Drama abroad at Balliol College, Oxford University. Being able to live in a foreign country as a student, surrounded by the rich and ancient history and culture of England, all while being dedicated to the study of my craft is still one of the most harmonized moments of my life. Knowledge is very important to me and from an early age I learned if I ever wanted the true answer to a question, it was best to look it up for myself.

I am audacious, intelligent, and sophisticated
What I’m doing with my life
Living in NYC and working as a freelance Make-up Artist, paying my dues, kicking ass and taking names. My goal since I was 5 years old has been to be a working artist in New York and now that I've attained it, I feel that everything else I want for myself is totally within reach.
I’m really good at
Cooking, I believe it is alchemy, not science and as such I see it as a true sensual experience to create and prepare a meal.
Writing, I've always been a girl who lived in her words.
Trivia, for some reason unbeknown to me I have always had a knack for retaining information.
Make-Up, I've always wanted to be a painter, however I have more skill with shadows, blushes, powders and liquids than I've ever had with any form of paint.
Dancing, I was once extremely uncoordinated and clumsy but I've really improved over time.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair, my eyes and my teeth. I have been told that I resemble singer Jill Scott.
That I sometimes talk to myself or sing aloud.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
How will the actions I carry out now impact my future?
Are said actions shaping my future as I see fit?
What modifications do I need to make to insure my actions create the future I want for myself?
What can I learn today?
What can I do today differently then I did yesterday?
On a typical Friday night I am
Dancing, drinking and flirting... There's such a time to be had on a Friday night in these NYC streets!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I were of age in the 1980's I probably, most definitely would have had an affair with Rick James. I say this even after reading his book, the book I might add that he wrote in prison, where he was sentenced for kidnapping and burning a woman with a crack pipe- all of which he denied in the book, of course! What can I say, I love the 'Bustin Out' album THAT much!
You should message me if
You enjoy illuminating conversation and a woman who can turn you on with her mind as well as the rest.
