I'm a singer and I write songs. I perform with a band. I do voiceovers for fun and to be sure I make a living. My other jobs have included Teacher, Wilderness Counselor, Foster Care Supervisor, Barista, Adoption Specialist, Optometrist Assistant, (Terrible) Waitress. I'm kind of a Pollyanna. I'm from Des Moines originally but moved a million times as a kid, so there's no place that's my hometown, really. I can be won over by almost any earnest person. I have a Master's Degree in Social Work / Mental Health. I can do a bunch of character voices. I've acted in some films and on TV. I won spelling bees in sixth grade. I like new technology. I'm learning to be less controlling. I like people who make me laugh, because I can be too serious. I like taking random walks to find random things. I like being alone. I also like being with people, but I get more selective all the time about who those people are. I'm a romantic. I'm a pragmatist. I'm a good dancer. I get bored quickly. I know I get bored quickly, so I work on it. I always have the goal of liking people that I don't care for when I meet them. I think most people are doing their best at any given time, so it makes sense to try to understand where they're coming from. I don't think I'm great at love, but I really like it. Buttered toast is my favorite thing in the whole world. Besides singing.
most things, but I tend not to ask for it.
I admire so many people. That's a longer conversation.
Shapeshifting. When a situation isn't going my way, I go full "when-in-Rome" - temporarily modifying my mannerisms, accent, maturity level, and/or stance on feminism to win over the likes of traffic cops, credit card companies, sound guys, and boyfriends' moms.

A rhythm pattern using a cup that I learned at camp, OR how to make a little stand for your chopsticks at a restaurant, with the wrapper that they come in.
