My self-summary
I'm a fun-loving, funny, smart, sassy, outgoing, energetic person. I love dogs, sushi, trapeze and all circus arts, training, sunshine, movies (watching and making), books, and things that are interesting. I'm always up for an adventure, but also love to spend at least one day every month or so without getting out of bed. I work a lot of hours, which means I really appreciate my downtime. That being said, I'm flexible enough to do what I want, when I want - at least most times. I love to travel. I love my friends. I love my dog.

I love physical activity. Aerial arts is my newest endeavor (going on two years), and while trapeze is my favorite, I'm also getting pretty excited about climbing things like silks and ropes. It's all fun! Boxing was my gateway drug to exercise, and I had a lot of fun with that too.

My description says fit, and I am extremely athletic, full of muscles. I do still also have a little extra (although the Bod Pod puts me at "moderately lean," and I'll take it!), and I'm not sure my body can get a lot smaller without surgery (I work out 20+ hours a week, so I'm pretty much at the limit). Anyway, if you're looking for model-thin, move on. I'll never be that. I'd rather be buff, anyway.

I'm in a serious long-term relationship, and that is not going to change. But I'm open to exploring as well!

I am NOT looking for hookups or one-night-stands.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a consultant, helping companies grow, which is very fun and rewarding. I also do petsitting and a few other odd things on the side. I am so lucky to love what I do, since I love variety and challenge. When I'm not working, I'm working out, going to shows, eating out, having fun!
I’m really good at
Storytelling. Writing. Dog training. Excel spreadsheets (dork!). Connecting people. Math. Being funny. Building communities. Business. It also turns out I'm pretty good at athletic endeavors. I'm kind of a badass on trapeze as well, and passable fair at burlesque.
The first things people usually notice about me
My high energy and outgoing personality! I'm an extrovert. Yes, indeed. Also, probably my very curly (pink and purple) hair. Also I'm usually in workout clothes. It's often inappropriate. Oh, well.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love the old science fiction and science fantasy. I enjoy mysteries and thrillers, historical fiction, dystopian fiction, psychological thrillers, and anything with a lack of typos and really good writing and story. I still enjoy a lot of the classics. I love comedies, quirky independent films, and some dramas. I LOVE theater. I go to WAY too many concerts. I love punk rock (Buzzcocks, Clash, Sex Pistols), rock and roll, R&B, and the Dixie Chicks. Sade rules. Earth Wind & Fire rules. Bonnie Raitt rules. Chris Isaak puts on a hell of a show. Sara Bareilles is fun. Howard Jones is fun. My Spotify list is about as eclectic as you can get. I love food, trying new kinds of food, and experimenting. I cook and bake frequently, and love to experiment in the kitchen. My favorite food is sushi, but I love all kinds of ethnic food.
Six things I could never do without
My circus family
Exercise/using my body
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What's next in my life, on a lot of levels. Professionally, personally. It probably keeps me out of the present a bit. I'm working on it. Lately I think a lot about trapeze.
On a typical Friday night I am
Maybe at a concert, dinner and a movie, or at home watching Netflix. Maybe enjoying a cocktail or beer. Or perhaps taking an aerial conditioning class. Then having a beer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes when I look in the mirror I see what I used to be and am terrified.
