Lover of life, creativity, and travel. I like telling and listening to stories, and surprising people with things that make them happy. I love making people laugh with a clever comment, but when my friends need me, it's important to me to support them.
There's a lot of really cool stuff to do in the world, and I want to do all of it. I've gone scuba diving off of Maui, both officiated AND dueled with the groom at a wedding (two different events), flown a plane over Seattle, and performed with a taiko group in rural Japan. And I'm just getting started.
I also write short fiction and compose music. They're great for staying creative outside of work, and allow me to express myself in more ways. Different media are good for communicating different things, so I try to pick what's best for what I'm trying to get across.
I love to travel! I've been to about a dozen of the states, and nearly as many countries across Europe and Asia. I love visiting new places and seeing what life is like there! There's so much to the world, and I want to see and experience as much of it as possible.
Movies: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Dr. Strangelove, Blade Runner, Star Wars. I have film maker friends; I try to support them whenever they have something new come out.
Music: Blind Guardian, Van Canto, Nightwish, Bruce Springsteen, Sabaton, Falconer, Avantasia, Apocalpytica, Iron Maiden. I've seen about half of those, and hope to see more. I love going to concerts.
Food: Korean, Thai, Chinese, Mexican, Indian, American. Also enjoy scotch. When I travel, I try to eat what I can't eat at home as much as possible.
Music - What can I say? Music keeps me sane.
Travel - There's so much world out there; I love seeing new places and experiencing how other people live.
Books - I love reading, always have. I tend to alternate between denser, more literary stuff and lighter nonfiction or pop fiction.
Creativity - I've always got a few side projects going. It's practically compulsive behavior.
Curiosity - There's always something new to discover, something new to learn. It's how people grow.
Numeracy - I'd hate to make some silly counting mistake.
I also spend a lot of time thinking about life, and how to live it well. How can I be making the most of myself, and of the time I have in the world?
There's also usually a couple ideas for a project bouncing around in my head at any given time. Well, more than a couple.
I'm looking for an intelligent woman who has at least a solid direction for what she wants to be doing in life, and strong sense of who she is. If that's you, I'd love to hear from you!
