What you see is what you get! I say what I mean and do what I say. I'm a good ol' midwestern girl who grew up on a hog farm. People seem to get a kick out of me explaining this about myself, as I 'don't look like 'that,' whatever 'that' is supposed to look like! Am I supposed to be donning a straw hat and jean overalls?
My profile name is homage to Dave Matthews Band and my friends say it's also an accurate description of me. I care about others oftentimes more than myself.
***I don't get the 'meet me' thing so a real message is the only way I'll see you.***
I'm giving. Affectionate. Driven. Silly. Selfless. Rational. Aware. Reliable. Hardworking. Direct. Witty. And Genuine. I'm happiest with the most simple of things. Cool with yoga pants/hoodie or completely glammed up. Complex but not dramatic. Having grown up on a farm, I love being outdoors and I'm not afraid of dirt. I feel I'm balanced and know who I am and what I want. I love learning and experiencing all that I can.
Professionally, I've mostly steered U.S. branding, marketing and distribution for a wide collection of international news channels. TV and journalism have always been my life! I'm a news junkie, especially love investigative stories and docs. I just recently started a VP position with a tech company focused on advertising in content on streaming apps.
I'm super fantastic at being silly, with equal parts seriousness when it calls for it. being empathetic, sympathetic and truly listening. having fun literally in any environment I find myself in. Making songs up spur of the moment. Witty comments at the precisely correct time. Baking yummy things. Putting fly outfits together. how's that for starters?
Most things I read these day have to do with digital and branding strategy... But I love biographies and history titles. My favorite book as a kid was The Phantom Tollbooth.
I love all music- everything from Dixie Chicks to Skrillex, Pearl Jam to Gavin DeGraw.
Big on good food, but equally love hot dogs and potato salad. I'm big on Middle Eastern, Vietnamese and French dishes... And tacos. Yay, tacos!
We should talk if: you like witty banter and laughing. You like thinking about things and wonder 'why' and 'how' things work. I like curiosity and adventure... Hope you do, too! Kind and thoughtful is important, as well. You know how to communicate. (I mean this!) You're attractive and 'with it' in the fashion department.
My whole life is built around this quote from one of my fave singers. If you identify with it, too...send me a message!
"Sometimes our only way is jumping/ I hope you're not afraid of heights." -GDG
