I'm an ambitious, artistic, energetic, health-conscious individual. I try to think outside of the box whilst coloring just inside the edges ;-) I don't deliberately go against the grain for its own sake, life just sometimes seems more rational that way. I do have long hair (to my shoulders), and people tell me that I look younger than I actually am. One of my coworkers has asked me why I lie about my age to make myself older! LOL!
I am finally exercising regularly. I use weights 3-4 times a week, and I'll work cycling in as well, once I get my weekly life schedule more worked out. I also enjoy racquetball & tennis.
I discovered an interest in photography in 2015 and I have been working on that skill. And I FINALLY got my first photo gig too, on 30 Oct 2015!!! It was a friend's wedding! Yay for me!!! Talk about a big shot of confidence!
I enjoy reading, and I'm working on doing it more often. Some favorite authors are: J.R.R. Tolkien Suzanne Collins, Michael Ende, Naomi Klein, John Gribbin, Sean Carroll. I'm a fan of many film genres, some favorite flicks/series are: The Hunger Games, Fight Club, High Fidelity, Zombieland, The Great Dictator, Modern Times, Paul Blart: Mall Cop, The Happening, Wayne's World, Star Wars, Harry Potter. Two of my favorite German actors are Daniel Brühl and Julia Jentsch. TV shows I'm a fan of: The Odd Couple starring Matthew Perry & Thomas Lennon, Supergirl starring Melissa Benoist, The Big Bang Theory, The X-Files, The Newsroom, Restaurant Impossible, Chopped, Good Eats, Cutthroat Kitchen (I'm a BIG fan of Chef Alton Brown).
Musically I trend towards rock, but I am very eclectic; for example I'm not a fan of country but Sam Hunt sounds interesting. A few favorite artists: John Mayer, Silbermond, Taylor Swift, Queensryche, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts (saw her live in September!), Joe Satriani, Sammy Hagar, Sara Bareilles. I am not a strict vegetarian nor could I ever be, but I try to eat mostly vegetarian. I also refuse refined grain as much as possible (white bread, white rice).
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
It doesn't really matter what we'd do, so long as I have good company, but I'd probably lean towards something like coffee, a drink or a small meal, not a long dinner.
