My self-summary
Friendly. Optimistic. Outgoing. Wear my heart on my sleeve. Cynical, at times. Would love to meet someone to date exclusively.

Good conversation over a glass of wine, chilling on a patio over beers, or even days spent wandering the city with a cup of hot cocoa sound just as good as sitting at home watching a movie with a giant bowl of kettle corn.

I have a degree in communication and publishing, and I know American Sign Language. In my spare time I hang out with an awesome community of musical theatre people. For fun I take aerial silks classes, cook, read, take long drives or wander around whatever great city I happen to be in. I love to travel, and want to see as much of the planet as I can.
What I’m doing with my life
Just trying to make my way in the world... you know how it is: grow up, go to school, graduate and find the "path to happiness", as it were.

I've been lucky to have lived in a few different cities: Vancouver, Toronto, and Rochester, NY. I spent about 10 years after high school puttering through various programs in university and college, and I still find myself working on campuses fairly frequently now. Sometimes it feels like I went into Uni/College, became a student and never left.
I’m really good at
Remembering random bizarre facts. For example, Sonic 2 on SEGA: the cheat codes were in the sound test. 19-65-09-17 got you access to all the levels, and then in the all-levels menu 04-01-02-06 got you Super Sonic.
The first things people usually notice about me
Physically either my height or my blue eyes.

If someone's spending an afternoon with me, the most common one is that I tend to know a lot of people.

Music: Amanda Marshall, Glee, Now and Forever (Carole King), Cyndi Lauper, Adam Gregory, Madonna (her older stuff and some newer stuff), Let It Go by Idina Menzel, Michael Jackson (same as Madonna), musicals stuff... honestly, my taste in music is everything fro The Seekers to Yanni to Bette Midler and ABBA to Bon Jovi and Hedley. It varies.

Food: Italian. Sushi, red wine, dark chocolate. Delicious flavours. :)

The six things I could never do without
1) My family.

2) My friends.

3) Thirst for knowledge.

4) A passport.

5) Self-confidence.

6) Memories of good times from the past and present to keep in mind for the future.

...if I was going to add #7, it would probably be Cirque du Soleil.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Riding on trains through the English countryside.
What would happen if I won a million dollars.
Whether dating sites actually exist to unite or distance people from one another.
On a typical Friday night I am
Spending time with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It's not uncommon for me to buy a bulk of something I really like--be it five pairs of shoes I wear down really quickly or 2kg of candy when I'm at a store that's not easy to get to (because it's in Sweden...or something).
You should message me if
You're optimistic we would get along.
