My self-summary
I moved to NYC from Seattle 6 years ago, but grew up in Alaska. I feel it's my duty as an Alaskan to dispel rumors of my native land, mostly regarding igloos and dogsleds. But not plaid -- we are a plaid-loving people.

I love the process of making. It can be anything, really. From food to motorcycles -- I love to see how things go together, and make some of it myself. I feel lucky to be able to do so in my work as it makes the hours fly by.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a freelance architectural illustrator and photographer.

I’m just a Brooklynite with lustrous, curly locks who'd like to meet someone to laugh with. I’d like to meet a creative, intelligent woman who is curious about the world.
I’m really good at
I love to play the piano, and I sing in a Brooklyn community choir. I also took improv classes for a year and would like to take more here. I love to ski and can think of nothing more exhilarating than screaming down the slopes and carving into centrifugal turns.

Oh, and I invented a recipe for brownies as cookies: Brookies©, and I might just make 'em for you.
The first things people usually notice about me
Physically, probably my curly, Sideshow Bob-style hair, and how young I look for my age. I think it was that lack of sun in my Alaskan youth. That shit's like cryogenics! Beyond that, a quick wit honed in a home full of older siblings.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've been listening to a lot of the Magnetic Fields and Yo La Tengo lately. Beck, Emmylou Harris, Gillian Welch, The Hold Steady, Old 97s, LCD Soundsystem, Radiohead...

I love jazz and am a fan of Keith Jarrett, Don Byron, Allen Toussaint's The Bright Mississippi will make ya smile. Oh, and I just heard of Catherine Russell, she's amazing.

Let's see, what' on my DVR ... the Daily Show, Colbert, Justified, The Americans, Mythbusters. Why isn't there a new season of House of Cards every month?! Bullshit, Netflix.

Books: I love The Amazing Adventures of Cavalier and Clay, David Foster Wallace's A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again, and anything by David Sedaris, Timothy Egan, Malcolm Gladwell, or Ian Frazier.

But I skip 'em all to keep my head above water with the New Yorker. That subway time is prime don't-get-behind-in-the-subscription time.
Six things I could never do without
dark chocolate
Peruvian chicken on the UWS
making things
You should message me if
If you look at the world and lots of what's in it with curiosity, and a genuine excitement just to find out more about those things.

Sarcasm and sass are great. I'm attracted to someone who can roll with it, who can handle a crisis or change in plans with smooth grace and style.
