Yes my pics are very recent and yes I physically age very slowly (this is a good thing ;) I make, create and heal. I'm a designer and maker of furniture, objects, devices and architecturals. I'm also a BSN/RN and on the path to NP who works now in blended regular and functional medicine. I specialize in neurology, infectious disease and most importantly the human micro biome. I'm anything but laid back. I'm intense, driven and passionate. My very diverse and often polar opposite upbringing and life experiences have helped me see things from so many different vantage points. As you can see from my pics, I'm a bit eccentric and have a zany sense of humor...but I need it to balance the other part of me, the serious, multifaceted, talented and educated go getter. I'm a intellectual lumberjack, fashionable dumpster diver, humble medical practitioner, binge eater at all you can eat buffets of knowledge and a rollerskating Buck Rogers on occasion. My passions are creation, art, design, functional medicine, neurology, learning more and more about bacteria, mechanics, robotics, science, chemistry, the environment, learning, exploring, traveling, working with my mind AND hands, helping others and trying to squeeze every drop out of life the day has to offer. That doesn't mean I run 180% all the time, I do have down days when I want to relax, naps and scifi binges are common. I want more than just a pretty girl on my arm, I want an energetic, positive, secure, self aware girl who values education, true open mindedness, passion for learning, wisdom, experience, how to dress like a fashionista one day and a motorhead/shop/trail hiker/yoga girl the next...and if you don't like at least a couple of the following: water, exploring, traveling, cooking, trying new foods/things, hikes, trail runs, rock climbing, swimming, the sun or having more fun than just clubbing...I might get bored. I do NOT like when I notice my life patterns have become routine. I also love to entertain and enjoy hosting and co-hosting parties and get-togethers when possible. There is so much to life and I want someone who wants to reach and explore it all with me, not someone who wants me to buy two tickets to Vegas for a week or the "New Years" package deal at local night club. I want to spend New Years on the highest rooftop, mountain top or something interesting like that...we can still dress like Bond and Bond girl, but we may have his and hers champagne bottles and whiskey flasks:)
Architecture and Design:
Richard Neutra, Mies van der Rohe, Frank L Wright, Phillipe Starck and pretty much anything Julius Shulman took pics of. I studied under Karim Rashid for Industrial Design, so as you can tell, I'm a design, science and architecture nerd. I also love treehouses, handbuilt shelters made from trees, sticks and vines when I'm in the environment for them.
Movies and Shows:
Blade Runner, Ex Machina, Agoraphobia, Star Wars, Star Trek, Old and new BSG, Buck Rogers, The Minority Report, Europa, Dr Who, mostly anything by David Cronenberg, Stanley Kubrick, Andrew Niccol, Director Ridley Scott, although pretty much anything SciFi, even the cheesy CW stuff. Walking Dead and no mostly not for the zombies, of course for the view of how cultures and societies could look in the face of that kind of event. Most horror especially more cerebral horror, but good slasher films from time to time are always good... great blend, American Psycho. I loved The Royal Tenenbaums and Napoleon Dynamite, those types of movies, Take Me Home Tonight, Hot Tub Time Machine and most anything with John Cusak . Just started West World...Also, I'm a big fan of environmental films, post apocalyptic stories...kind of anything that talks about what would happen when the way we do things has passed the point of "has to stop" and it just does. Also, instructional type shows like cooking, do it your-selfer shows, building green and of course who doesn't wish they could switch places with Bear Grylls (I definitely would in a heartbeat!)
My listening preferences change often, but I like many artists and types: Miles Davis, Sade, Thievery Corporation, Mos Def, NAS, 50 Cent, Jay-Z, DeadMaus, MSTRKFT, Moby, Jazzanova, Goldfrapp, Concord Dawn, Aphrodite (d&b), Fred Everything, Maxxi Soundsystem, Guns and Roses, She Wants Revenge, Depeche Mode, Lily Allen, The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkle, recently rediscovered Paul Simon thanks to a friend...Salsa, Latin or Brazilian like Eve Medes, reggaeton, classical piano...yeah everything but barrel drum circus music (the kind they play at carnivals), thats just too creepy.
