I am workaholic and a fun junkie---meticulous and impulsive in equal measure---a super type A plan-maker and go with the flow wave rider. I wake up every day just to watch the sun rise and I often fall asleep in all my clothes. I am a gregarious and energetic introvert---my ambition generally presents in the form of helping others realize their potential. I will look for any excuse to wear a costume or dance.
I'm a freelance branding and launch specialist, which means I marry creative vision and logistics to make things go. Usually those things are restaurants, sometimes creative start-ups.
What I really want to do is just grow heirloom tomatoes and get weird out in the country.
I have an Interdisciplinary degree in Art History, Anthropology and Religious Studies, with an emphasis in South Asia---a course of study that well prepared me to be a bartender for most of my twenties.
I dig words, smells, foods, flowers, candor, Greek and Spanish things, old houses, rock n roll, thunderstorms, surf movies, dance (any kind, any where, all the time), art deco design, making things with my hands, witty banter, serious debate, intense reflection and dick jokes. I really appreciate vulgarity, yet I am super proud of my polite, Southern upbringing. I do have a faint accent that is particularly noticeable after I get off of the phone with my mother or have a few glasses of rosé. If I'm drinking rosé with my mother---forget about it.
A friend once described me as someone with the tenacity to chew my way out of a bear trap, but the first thing you will probably notice about me is my rack.
People ask me about my ethnicity a lot. I don't know much about my heritage, but whoever my people are, they can really pop, lock and drop it.
Mining cities for hidden culinary gems
Making people laugh
Making things happen
Sharing my unsolicited opinion
Looking really serious
Coming up with a hilarious costume on the fly
Staying in touch

Love (of and for my peeps)
You know who you are, and like it.
You are funny. It's a non-negotiable.
You only wear flip-flops at the beach or in gym showers.
Believe (or are open to the notion) that Armageddon It is the most romantic song ever written.
**this is not a song performed by Aerosmith and immediate disqualification for telling me you "loved that song from Armageddon" No you didn't. And if you did, shame on you**
You can introduce me to something new. (and not say "my dick" in your head after reading that)
Your profile does not feature a picture of you fondling a guitar.
*will make an exception if you can play the theme to Night Court*
You are the life of the party, but equally content to just read in bed with me on a Friday night.
You can teach me how to fish.
You love bad bitches and don't see that as a fucking problem.
Also, you if just like meeting new fun people for giggles.
Some of my best new friends have come out this little toy.
