My self-summary
I wear many hats in my life. I am a music nut and am constantly on the go doing one thing or another. My degree is in audio engineering and my personal craft is house and trance music. I have an awesome monster of a kid and devote a good chunk of my time when at home with him. I am second banana to a larger-than-myself boombox society who is committed to bring rogue dance parties to the streets of Austin. We are quite heavily involved in the local Burning Man community. I am also happily married to a wonderful husband who knows that I am here on OkC looking to meet people. If that doesn't freak you out in any way, then I invite you to read further.

I am not the girl next door, I am not in any sort of way graceful or feminine. I am loud, easily excitable and often full-throttle until I fall down flat on my face. At the same time I am socially awkward and often try to cope with that by marching to the beat of my own drum and encouraging others to join me. I am opinionated and will speak my mind, sometimes to my own detriment. I have little patience for unhonorable behavior, or for people who do not keep their word. I like to think that I am a kind and loving person, but I can have a mean temper once it is riled. I intimidate men who do not know me. I am a mother and a warrior and when hardship slaps me in the face, I bear my teeth and kick its ass.

I know some might think that I just listed a litany of faults and weaknesses, but not me. I am proud and not apologetic for who I am, but I feel like my most glaring qualities should be put out in the open. While I am all of the things that I just said, I am also in some ways completely the opposite.

I am fiercely loyal to the people who prove to me they are worth my time. I am the biggest Twinkie in the world and cry predictably at movies and tv shows. I like to think that I am an excellent cook, who has mastered MOST types of food (except Indian food, damn you, delicious curry!) I am an affectionate, goofy, understanding person who likes to talk about nothing all day, and then hear about how cute your kid was when you put them to bed. I enjoy making genuine connections with genuine people.

Partying, or the act of listening to music and dancing for the sake of nothing else, is a big part of my life. Despite my day job, I am working hard at becoming a force of nature on the dance floors of Austin. Music is my life, heart and soul.
What I’m doing with my life
I work a boring day job that pays the bills but thankfully goes quickly once I get going. At night, I care for my son and husband, and then on the weekends I play shows and go dancing!

In the mean time, most of my spare time is eaten up by organizing my boombox society and trying to get everything in order so I can see my plans come to fruition. I have so many crazy ideas, and they are right at the tips of my fingers!

I jumped feet first back into DJ'ing in 2013 after a "shit got real and then I had a kid" break. It feels good to be back. I am currently obsessed with collecting every awesome mashup ever. I am also expanding my library of tracks to have a pretty mean selection of TribalTech. Because I can. I am known as the Trance Queen of Austin.
I’m really good at
Cooking, planning fun stuff, hiking, fitness, being an Amazon, dancing my ass off, Batman lore, articulating why DC's Nu-52 is a travesty to mankind, beating classic/vintage trance into submission to facilitate my obsession with 3 minute mixes, obsessing over tracks that won't be available to the public for another 2 weeks, auto tuning people that can't sing (as much as it kills my soul), accepting the suck and kicking its ass, organizing bananas and herding cats.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am very high energy and easily excitable. I get overtaken by a project and give it 180% of my attention until it is done. I intimidate men the first time I meet them, sometimes. I am an alpha female who is used to running the show for my family.

It is worth mentioning that if you don't handle intense people well, then you probably can't handle me. I'm intense. In every sense of the word.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I LOVE food but have some crazy food allergies that make it hard for me to just eat anywhere or any thing. I end up cooking most of my meals, and enjoy trying new stuff out and new recipes. Most people would consider my food health food. Also bacon. Lots and lots of bacon.

My allergies are why I don't drink a lot. I can't have beer, and so drinking to get drunk just doesn't appeal to me. I'm a 2-3 drink in a night kinda girl.

I read a lot of current events stuff, but I have way too much ADD to sit down and read book after book. The truth of the matter is that I read so fast that I don't retain a lot of what I read, so I can give it a couple years and read a book as if it were brand new to me. At said, I LOVE comic books and somehow manage to retain as much as possible about characters and story arcs.

Comic book movies are my favorite (Batman and Iron Man, hell yes!!!) Horror movies aren't my favorite but I love zombies in particular.

My music is terribly cheesy and I don't give a damn. I love 70's disco, 80's nu-wave pop and 90's just-about-anything. House music and Nine Inch Nails are my biggest greatest loves, so most of what I listen to on a day to day basis is EDM or Trent Reznor centric.

I am a DJ who records/produces music for her career, and so I hear music differently than most people. I can hear how shitty of a vocalist someone may be, despite how much auto tune they threw on there. Go listen to Nicki Manaj and then go listen to Madonna (from like the 80's) immediately after and maybe you'll get an idea of what I mean. Modern music is, for the most part, shit.

I am choosy about what shows I go to. They usually have to be a band/DJ that I enjoy. I really enjoy Ethics on 5th and Congress, they have awesome music most nights of the week. Kingdom and Elysium are two other places that I enjoy going, but that's because there is usually someone I bought tickets to go see is playing. I enjoy going down town with a purpose, but just going to 6th to drink will be a "pass" for me.
Six things I could never do without
In no particular order....

• My son
• My turntables
• My internet capable devices (the iPhone and iPad are just extensions of one another)
• My music (be it prerecorded or any live recording work I might do)
• My car (I dive a lot)
• Partying (remember, I'm a dancing fool, lol)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Songs to add to my party pod, how to build party costumes for my boombox society, contemplate the future of music as we know it, and playing coordinator for not only my life but my husband and son, how the hell does the bpm waver on a track bough off iTunes, reminding myself that not all EDM was written with a global beat grid and that long ago they used outboard midi gear that wasn't always 100% in synch (Lange, I am looking at you!)
On a typical Friday night I am
My favorite thing to do on a Friday night is load my iPod full of party tracks, grab a boombox and a few friends, and dance in the streets of Austin. Playing Pokemon Go. Maybe recording some music. Most recently, I've been having a lot of shows on the weekend. Maybe you can come dance on my floor?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am obsessed with Trance music.
You should message me if
• You like dancing and house/trance and can actually talk to me about tracks, artists and production.
• You are a musician of some sort yourself, possibly in a band or playing out as a DJ.
• You want to be part of something larger than life
• You are unafraid to let your hair down and be silly
• If your idea of fun does NOT always include getting drunk, but you're still willing to grab a coffee and a great conversation
• You understand that life gets busy and I have a family to care for
• You can dig that I need to be friends first, before we can be any thing else

In the interest of being up front, I want to mention that sex is not my top motivator. Sex is not off the table, but I get plenty of awesome sex already. Think of sex as the icing. I want to have good times, great conversations, explore someone intellectually and then - only then - will sex come into consideration. Your patience, I assure you, will be worth it. If you can not have patience and respect for my need to move slow to avoid being overwhelmed, then I am not the girl for you.

It should also be mentioned that I have some pretty specific boundaries pertaining to how I am treated by others. I let someone break all those boundaries, and learned my lesson. If you can not communicate clearly, be open and honest with me, and own up to your own actions, please don't message me.
