My self-summary
Sassy lil' spitfire, or sweet and true friend, depending on who you ask.

Just a girl who wants to have fun.

[Profile in progress; I took a long break from dating and a lot of this info is way out of date.]
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to strike a balance between making art and making a living.... and having a life. The last few years have been mostly about pursuing art and career (and art-career), but I've managed to squeeze in some fun here and there.

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 pretty proud of the work we're doing: arts education and support for local artists are things I'm pretty passionate about.
I’m really good at
Building things. I'm a jeweler by training; I have an art studio in Pioneer Square, I teach community college jewelry classes in the evening, and I run an arts organization. And I have a day job.
The first things people usually notice about me
Brown hair green eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Crazy but true, I have never owned a TV. For a long time I didn't watch ANY television, but recently I have been watching shows online and in collected seasons. Currently watchlist: GoT, OitNB, Agents of Shield.

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.
The six things I could never do without
Coffee, creative outlet, nature, a plan, music, more coffee.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Work. Designing. Current projects on the production docket. Projects I'd RATHER be working on. Finances. Business. Things that make my venture go. What my next move is, and what the one after that will be.
On a typical Friday night I am
At my studio :)
You should message me if
...you want to?

Dear Poly guys:
Odds are, you're smart, hot, well-employed, a good communicator, and fantastic in bed. That's why you already have like eight girlfriends. I'm not at all opposed to poly, but at present I am inclined to be high maintenance. I don't want to have to compete for your attention. I don't want to have to share. I want a primary partner, and I want to take my time getting to know him and exploring deep and meaningful relationship with him.

("High maintenance," btw, is relative - and I have it on pretty good authority that I'm not being unreasonable or demanding.)

I am not really very interested in being "the other woman," again. I'd like the option to co-write the rules, for once. I really like Dan Savage's term: monogamish.

Thanks for understanding. It's not you, it's me.
