The one thing I am passionate about...
My career as a lighting designer -- I'm very lucky to have found what I want to do with the rest of my life at a young age, and I love every minute I spend doing it. I love the creativity and freedom my field allows, and I value those two things highly. I'm equally as passionate about living a balanced life, though, which means that goofing off, relaxing, and exploring New York City are equally as important to me.
I typically spend my leisure time
I normally have to do something creative, whether its mentally creative like reading or writing, or physically creative like drawing, painting, or building something. I love to work with my hands, which I think comes from my love of LEGOs and K'NEX as a kid. I'm always a fan of a good movie or TV show at home too. Otherwise I love spending free time wandering and exploring the city, discovering new places to go and experiences to try. I also try to go see as much theatre as I can possibly afford.
The most influential person in my life has been
Imagination -- I find imagination leads to creativity, creativity to intelligence, intelligence to passion, and passion to an energy and enthusiasm for life. If you have a wild imagination definitely let me know!
The first thing people notice about me
That I smile -- ALL THE TIME. Most people are amazed by how happy I am all the time. I tell them: it's all about attitude. Life is so much more fun when you're happy and excited to be living it.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I'm a bit of a thriller junkie -- I love the James Rollins series about a secret government team of scientist/ninjas who have to stop a new world-threatening danger every book. It's Dan Brown kind of stuff. I love the suspense.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My happy, caring, supportive family.
- The deep friendships and lasting memories I have formed that always give me reason to smile.
- The good fortune I have had to pursue my dreams without limit thanks to the love and support of my friends and family.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I am a sappy romantic with a hidden sensual side.
Friends Describe me as
