I'm a constantly smiling extrovert living in New York City. Originally from Austin, Texas, I got rid of the accent ages ago but held onto the southern charm and wit. I worked as a classically-trained ballet dancer but have since settled down from constantly touring and living life on the road, but I do miss it on occasion. What I don't miss is coming back to New York City and scrambling to find a place to sublet and job to hold me up until I sign my next dance contract. As such, I'm now pursuing other creative ventures in social media marketing, event design and production, graphic design, and have even adopted a pup to call my own.
I recently started taking my weightlifting endeavors to a whole new level and am definitely on the lookout for training buddies and other like-minded individuals. You can find me on BodyBuilding.com under the username "EllingtonBear".
I've also thrown myself back into the dating pool and am making friends as I go along. I like to surround myself with people (for both platonic and romantic adventures) who have drive and passion in whatever it is they do and a good head on their shoulders. That, and people who enjoy a cocktail at a bar as much as a glass of wine at home.
