Ever since I can remember, I’ve always been perfectly satisfied being the yin to others’ yangs. Probably has a lot to do with growing up in a family of seven. While I always seem to fit in well, I don’t blend in. I’ll often be the loudest, most vulgar person at the table unless I happen to be in the company of someone more outrageous than myself, then I like to sit back and just enjoy the entertainment.
I love music and it’s been a part of my life from the very beginning. I play the flute and piano and have won an exorbitant amount of grammies for my in-shower vocal performances of popular songs. I’ve been snowboarding for over 10 years and love to hike and kayak. I’m a HUGE football fan and am obsessed with Peyton Manning. While normally a very chill and mild-mannered person, I have the potential to get violent if someone attempts to talk shit. Hot topics for me: Peyton Manning, Beyonce, and Britney Spears. I’m not exactly sure what my infatuation with them is, but it’s deep. Lately, I’ve been pretty caught up with old 40s and 50s films. There’s something captivating about how raw the acting seems without all the contemporary special effects and camera techniques.
It's hard to explain when people ask where I'm from, I usually say "A few places, its a long story." I’m half black and half Irish(amongst whatever else) so even though I rarely get angry, I can leap over a table if I need to. I believe strongly in family, respect, and honesty. I grew up with three older brothers so I’ve heard almost everything and respect brutal honesty rather than being offended by it. People who I notice only tell me the things I want to hear creep me out… I have never met a person who scared me, I have never felt like a victim, and I have no problem standing up for myself if I feel disrespected regardless of the person’s size, gender, or age. I have a dark, sick sense of humor at times and can get really weird when I’m bored. I usually prefer quiet nights to partying and clubbing but when I do go out, I expect to party HARD and either have amazing stories to tell the next day or not remember it at all.
