Like pretty much everyone else here, I want someone who is smart, funny, and attractive. But unlike most of the people here, I want you to challenge me. To push me, to never let me coast, or settle. And I promise to do the same in return. I don’t want simple or easy, I don’t want the house with the white picket fence in the suburbs, and I don’t want boring. I want to wake up each day and wonder where the day will take me and what lies ahead. Happily ever after can happen when the story is over, and mine is always just starting.
While I grew up in Portland, I have returned after a 14 year absence in Denver. I am excited to relearn and re-explore the place I always thought of as "home".
When I am not working, I am trying to satiate my wanderlust as I try to take two to three trips a year. Otherwise I am spending my time learning, growing, enjoying, making new stories, and helping others. I seem to fortunate enough to show up in people's lives when they need a smile, a bit of magic, or just to see things a little differently. (Or, more often, they show up in mine for much the same effect.)
Shows - Sherlock, Doctor Who, Last Week Tonight, Luther, It Crowd, Coupling, Being Erica, BSG, the Prisoner, the West Wing, Newsroom, Sports Night, Daredevil, Jesica Jones, Flash...
Books - I can never seem to finish a novel because get 60 to 100 pages in, and then start something new (I am a Gemini after all.) So I love to read short stories and graphic novels- Charles De Lint, Johnathan Carrol, Isaac Asimov, O. Henry, Gaiman, Warren Ellis, Greg Rucka, Grant Morrison...
Music - If it ain't country, I will probably like it. Right now my favorites are Snow Patrol, Florence and the Machine, Mumford and Sons, Sarah McLachlin, The Swell Season (I saw Marketa perform in a Dublin church which was absolutely amazing), Blue October, Birdy, Hozier, Delta Rae
Plays - I am always up for Shakespeare. My favorite play is Arcadia by Tom Stoppard. While I am not huge on musicals, Rent is also a fave. I am usually up for watching anything live.
