My self-summary
What I’m doing with my life
I have lived on the east coast and the west coast, and was born somewhere in the middle. I have an MFA, and currently work as an artist (sculpture/installation/ fibers/ photography) while piecing together other part-time jobs. I have a strong midwestern work ethic, and am not afraid of a challenge. I love traveling, meeting interesting people, and opening myself up to new experiences. And walking... always walking. I recently walked 150 miles across northern Spain.

Update: **I'm moving to Tennessee in August! I'll be about an hour from Nashville.
I’m really good at
keeping the peace
The first things people usually notice about me
my smile
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anna Karenina, Unbearable Lightness of Being, Invisible Cities, Jane Eyre, Middlesex, The Goldfinch, short stories by Nabokov, poetry by Rilke, anything by David Sedaris. I have a weakness for historical fiction (People of the Book, Pillars of the Earth, All the Light We Cannot See). I especially love listening to audiobooks while I work and am in awe of the incredible voice actors out there.

Movies: The Lives of Others, Amelie, Into the Wild, Lost in Translation. I generally like indie flicks and foreign films, and tend to frequent the Coolidge Corner Theater. I don't have a TV, but I do enjoy following a good series on Netflix (Mad Men, Downton Abbey, Six Feet Under...)

Music: too many to name but a few recent favorites include; Beirut, Devotchka, Mazzy Star, Thievery Corporation, and The Polish Ambassador.

Artists: Ann Hamilton, Giuseppe Penone, Tim Hawkinson, Tara Donovan

I spend a lot of time thinking about
art, design, nature, philosophy, meditation, finding beauty in the seemingly mundane moments of everyday life and... trying not to think too much!
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, at home watching a movie, making art, visiting new places...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have really high arches
You should message me if
You are honest, genuine, and maybe a bit eccentric. You have a contemplative side but also a good sense of humor. You are adventurous and have a slightly mischievous spirit. Also, you know yourself and you are at a point in your life where you are ready to be in a relationship.

I know it may be a little unorthodox for this site, but I am looking for a significant relationship... I'm a miner for a heart of gold (and I'm growing old!)
