My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’ve lived in LA, Las Vegas, Europe, Jersey and now Brooklyn , with a bi-eyed (it’s a real term) husky mix named Bowie and a hipster-friendly backyard, complete with an overgrown garden, fire pit, the requisite strands of broken Christmas lights, and hat rack for festive summer hats. I also have a washing machine and don’t save quarters.

I have a rarely-used Masters in English lit & creative writing and work as the programming director for a non-profit performing arts center, presenting rock, pop, dance, classical, dance, comedy, family, and all things artsy-fartsy, which I need to go see regularly for work. I speak fluent English, present-tense Spanish, inappropriate German, and Italian restaurant. I insist on oxford commas and double space between sentences.

I have a high tolerance for eccentric strangers, homeless people, and modern art. I celebrate sarcasm, look for the joke in everything, go to yoga when I can, meditate when I remember, plan hiking & camping trips, beach often. I’m trying to play soccer, bike, and run more.

When inspired, I’m an amateur cook & lapsed graduate student in nutritional science. I grow herbs & vegetables that my roommates and I forget to eat. I make my own beer (big surprise here), bread, nutmilks (wow, I just typed "nutmilk") and really there's not much I won't juice at this point. I’ve looked into making cheese but that might be taking the whole urban homesteading thing too far. I won't pickle. Sorry. There needs to be some limits.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Starting a new job I love. Subtle chaos. Over-scheduling myself. Teaching my dog guitar. Performing at weddings. Going to concerts, shows, etc.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Setting up a campsite
Making the greatest guacamole ever
Brewing beer
Biking alongside multiple dogs
Making 10 minute meals
Shopping at farmers markets
Road tripping
Eating tacos

I'm thinking about getting one of those fuzzy, fake velvet matching track suites so Sundays in the fall... I also own a pair of "designer" crocks, which are a holdover from by days in LA where the footwear is no so maligned.
