I would love Nightlight Shadows/music to be my main career, so we can tour and constantly play music, but of course the music business is complicated and fickle, so my more steady career path would be a psychologist or counselor. I love finding out why someone is the way they are and the way their mind works. I am very interesting in relationship and sexual aspects of psychology. I am a good listener and can offer advice, but should I give advice? Who knows! For now, however, my course in life is unsure, I'm figuring things out as I go along.
Bonus Fun fact(s):
I'm a huge fan of Aubrey Plaza & Chris Pratt (and the whole cast of Parks and Recreation because the show is AMAZING!), Tatiana Maslany & Evelyne Brochu (and the whole cast of Orphan Black, awesome show), Eisley (and Sucrè), Rilo Kiley (and Jenny Lewis), Greg James (BBC Radio 1 DJ), Mcfly (and Mcbusted), Kristen Bell, Improv (at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, especially a show called "Search History"! The cast is hilarious and wonderful!) and The Pistol Shrimps.
My band, Nightlight Shadows, try to play gig in LA, Pasadena, and surrounding areas. We are also trying to record an EP.

Food: I like to try all kinds of different food. I was raised on a mixture of American food (burgers, chicken, fast food, etc.), and Filipino food, but I also had various Asian food (Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese, etc), Italian, Mexican, etc. I'm pretty open minded about food. I like fast foods, healthy foods and restaurant foods (if only is wasn't so damn expensive), sweet foods (deserts) etc. I like to cook and bake, so bon appétit.

With the band, practicing or recording.
OR if you are April Ludgate - sarcastic, seems a little tougher from the outside, but really is a caring, loving, secret goofball, who is smart and responsible.
OR you are Delphine Cormier - intelligent, passionate, confident, and a cute little puppy.
OR you are Cosima Niehaus - eccentric, brilliant, down to earth, caring, loving, confident, little snarky, geek monkey.
(If you get these references, I already like you.)
If you like what you read and are a caring person, who likes to be themselves and hang out and doesn't mind indie rock, folk-ish grunge-y, music because my band is a big part of who I am. Music lover, concert goer or willing to go to concerts, romantic, sweet, spontaneous, fun, funny, able to read sarcasm, etc.
Bonus points if you are British, Irish, Australian, Scottish or French (accents = Yum)!
