I am here looking for genuine connections, and not just romantic connections. (Though I am open to and interested in romantic connections if that is where the chemistry leads us.) I want to meet those who are smart, funny, and interesting. But I also want people in my life who challenge me because I think life is about continuously learning, growing, and exploring. I am hoping to meet those who doesn't necessarily make my life easy, but makes it interesting every time I am with them. I am looking for people who like the random spur of the moment activities or enjoys following whims and the occasional flights of fancy. I have been known to buy a ticket for a concert the day of the event, walk up to a play 20 minutes before it starts to see if they still have seats, book a vacation within a week of going, and take the random path or stairway just to see where it leads.
While I grew up in Portland, I have returned after a 14 year absence. 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 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.
