My self-summary
I am an art therapist, working and living in Philadelphia. I'm also painter, which I guess also makes me self-employed. I'm generally here to connect to other artists and make friends. I also enjoy reading, and have recently developed an interest in classic literature. Leo Tolstoy, Jane Austen, to name a few. I also enjoy going to shows, galleries and visiting new cities. I'm a bit of a homebody these days, but love to go out and try different restaurants and bars the Philadelphia. I could eat sushi every day of the week if I could. I love living in the city, but also enjoy camping and hiking.

As mentioned before, I am only interested in making friends here. I am in a relationship and do not want to receive messages that allude to wanting that.
What I’m doing with my life
I work with adults with chronic mental illness in an psychiatric rehabilitation program. I provide group, individual and art therapy to the clients. I am also painter, and work primarily in oils and water colors. I recently exhibited work in a group show at a gallery in Brooklyn, NY. I am looking to show artwork in Philly galleries.
I’m really good at
I think I'm generally a good listener. I kind of have to be, in order to work in my profession. I also think I have a lot of patience, but even that has a limit.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair, so I've been told.

It varies between going out or staying. Depends on how tired I feel after work.
