My self-summary
I'm quite unique. I'm honest, direct, driven, kind, goofy, and passionate. I'm a massive nerd; I have no problem embarrassing myself to give even a little bit of entertainment to a kid. I go to the symphony on a regular basis. For halloween, one year, I dressed up as a booger with a sign that said, "pick me first". Anything scientific, particularly astronomy, interests me. Music is the only subject, like religion for most people, that will incite an all out war with me. I'm fiercely independent and very much my own person.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a makeup artist getting my business started. Two days a week I teach my piano students. In college I majored in music with the dream of becoming a composer. While in music school I started working for M.A.C and discovered I also have a passion and talent for makeup artistry.
I’m really good at
I'm not a concert pianist, but I did major in piano. I'm very creative and fairly good with anything artistic. People also tell me I'm funny.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height (5'10), blonde hair, blue eyes, and intelligence.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Classical music and film scores are my main musical focus, but I also appreciate everything from the Beach Boys to anything Pharell Williams produces. Some of my favorite artists include: Aaron Copland, Igor Stravinsky, Danny Elfman, Bela Bartok, Francis Poulenc, Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, Phillip Glass, Thomas Newman, J.S. Bach, George Crumb, Charles Ives, Henry Cowell, Erik Satie, Alice in Chains, Megadeath, Ben Folds, The Beatles, DeVotchka, Beruit, Animal Collective, Beethoven, Cake, Common, Tupac, NERD, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, and ridiculous pop stars.

The only book or series I've ever fallen deeply in love with is Harry Potter, and I've really been enjoying Richard Dawkins. Though I've read lots of plays, some classics, factual books and other pop series. Books I've enjoyed include: Outliers, On the Shoulders of Giants, The Sayings of Confucius, The Universe in a Nutshell, Oedipus Rex, the Bible (hell of a read), God is Not Great, Contagious, Emma, Blue Like Jazz, Twilight (don't judge), A Brief History of Time, and I'm currently reading The First Twenty Minutes and the God Delusion. I do read every night but find I think most of the authors are narcissistic and lack an edit button. I couldnt even stomach finishing Bossy Pants or Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. No one can honestly tell me that Outliers needed to be that long, or The Tipping Point for that matter.

Movies: Don't Tell Mom the Babysitters Dead, An American in Paris, Clueless, Daddy Long Legs, The Red Shoes, Midnight in Paris, Requiem for a Dream, Miracle on 34th Street, Pi, Wayne's World, anything from Pixar, Alladin, and Big Fish.
Six things I could never do without
My phone and piano are the only non-negotiables; I can MacGyver anything else.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm a very curious person. I spend a lot of time googling things with a life-long goal of becoming a Snapple cap. Success and self-improvement also occupy large chunks of my thoughts. Whether it is finding ways to generate more creative, fulfilling work or developing the skills needed to become a better composer, it's usually on my mind. I also think of ways to live in other places, not that I don't love SF, but I have a desire to go exploring! I'm interested in living in London, New York, and really anywhere completely different; granted, it must be relatively safe.
On a typical Friday night I am
At Davies Symphony Hall watching Michael Tilson Thomas blow my mind! Otherwise, I'm usually working on a photo shoot or out and about probably drinking scotch.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't tell a story without mimicking the people's voices and accents that I'm talking about. People either love it or hate it, but I don't realize I'm doing it.
You should message me if
You think critically and observe the world through that filter. The word bromance appears nowhere in your, or any of your friend's, vernacular. If you tend to dislike entitled, shiny people. You are not a creepy, rich dude looking for an "arrangement" (if you're approaching women for an "arrangement," I have news for you, you are creepy. It does not matter how fantastic you think you are, decent people will not be interested.) You are intelligent, driven, kind, and goofy. You don't believe a woman's body has a way of "shutting that whole thing down." (Yeah, that's right, I threw that in there.) I'm a huge dork and appreciate having a drunken conversation about the social implications of Harry Potter. I make bad band jokes and love a good pun. If any of this interests you, we may get along. I have no interest in timid people, if you're interested I'm not doing the bullshit look at your pics like me thing anymore, just reach out. Fortune favors the bold.
The two of us
