I am that rare mix of left-brained and right-brained: I am an entrepreneur-artist, a leader in an arts organization, an art teacher, and a project manager at a place where we get to build stuff. I excel at biting off more than I can chew. Sometimes I'm moderately successful at it.
I have lived in Seattle for a little over ten years, and I've lived all over the city. I recently moved to North Greenwood and I'm enjoying exploring my new neighborhood.
I have a lot of energy and am pretty ambitious and motivated. I sometimes forget that I am not Wonder Woman, and I get overcommitted quickly - there's too much cool stuff I want to do. I tend to rely on my partner to help find the balance between work and social.
I love travel and adventure - in the last year I added several new stamps to my passport with visits to Reykjavik, Copenhagen, St Petersburg, Moscow, and Dakar. (Dakar was my favorite, followed by St Petersburg.) On one of those trips I also got to stomp around NYC for the first time, which I loved. Looking forward to wherever my next trip takes me (New Zealand I hope!) - but need to build up the piggy bank again first.
I can't seem to go very long without ending up in charge of some group or other. Lately I am running a local arts organization, which is pretty cool. I'm fairly proud of the work we're doing: arts education and support for local artists are things that I'm passionate about.
I am really good at ideas. I am pretty good at seeing the way things outta be done - and once that's clear, it's kinda like: well hell, that's broken, let's fix it. I'm pretty good at fixing things, but I sometimes get a little overwhelmed because there's a lotta crap that's broken. I like having someone around that will say, hey - f this, let's go play skeeball.
Me and fire, we get along - I love camping and I usually end up being the fire-tender. I am NOT very good at cooking.... But I do like to eat what other people cook... :) I'm also pretty good at making my cat do cute things. She's kind of absurdly cute to begin with though.
Music - I like KEXP a lot; I frequently listen to them when I'm working in my studio. I have a soft spot for dance music and industrial too.
I love all the PNW seafood we get here - it never gets old. I also really enjoy Thai and Indian cuisine, and sushi. But I'm also pretty much always game for a burger and a beer, or even a slice of pizza.
Pretty serious coffee habit. Dark chocolate, too.
Did I turn the gas off?
...in the world in which I actually make plans in advance. In reality I might have been too busy to make fun plans, so I'm at home watching Netflix.
On the other hand, if you are voting Republican kindly go die in a fire. I don't want to hear from you, we won't get along.
I probably show up as a high match for poly people - this is because I am open-minded and have had poly relationships in the past. I am currently looking for a primary partner, and I am not interested in being a secondary partner to anyone. Smooches! Have fun with your polycule, I might want to hang out sometime because we probably WOULD get along, but probably just in a platonic kind of way. :)
