First of all, I have recently moved from my hometown of Los Angeles to NYC. I have many friends here, and it has been a good adjustment. I've had a great time noticing and appreciating the cultural differences. People here talking on their cell phones aren't talking about whose hands at Warner's their screenplay is in. Or DESCRIBING an idea for a movie... That is a nice relief. People here spit in public much more. Strange men here murmur something dirty in your direction when you are passing by. In Los Angeles, they just stare, as it is nearly taboo to speak to a stranger. All that is missing is that I need to find the magic clubs. Because I like magic.
My walks here are breathtaking. I TRY to run in the am. I like to go to Battery Park and sit and do my reading for work. I like to visit with dogs in the street. People in New York seem very open to that, especially if I ask to visit first. I usually can't let a bulldog walk by without asking to visit for a second. But I feel it out first. I have a special bond with bulldogs.
Also, I make films/videos, in the short, experimental sense, not in the Hollywood sense. My favorites are anywhere from 10-30 seconds long. Micro-cinema. I make a few a week.
I make people laugh, but more importantly, I make people feel comfortable. There's a lot I should say about who I am looking for, but really, it's about chemistry.
But hopefully, someone funny! I am graceful and professional, but I can also pull the ridiculous and sharp side of wit mixed with physical comedy out myself out like lightening in appropriate company. (I hope that doesn't bring to mind an image of myself pulling a tablecloth out from under a set table, because that wasn't really what I meant. Not really.)
I prefer viral videos that make me cry laughing over cute ones. I get the best ones from the high school students I counsel (for college) as part of my profession.
And I should also say something about this: I was watching Downton Abbey when I signed up, and didn't realize I couldn't change it! :) So please know, it was a BBC Masterpiece Classic and I'm not a girl named Abbey who considers herself, style and sassy attitude to be very... "Downton" and then embarrassed herself with a tragically misspelled "Downtown".
In all, it's kind of hard to describe myself outside of typing- I wouldn't say I speak very loudly. I smile a lot. My profession encourages it.
PS- All my photos are within a year. The photos with the lighter hair are most recent...
