My self-summary
I'm a mix of passion and playfulness, equally excited by political issues and art projects; creative, curious, and colorful; fond of adjectives and alliteration.

I grew up on Long Island, but I'm convinced that was just a fluke of the cosmos and I got lost on the way to being born. I love this city as if it were capable of consciously loving me back. I can't imagine living anywhere else. Though I will still correct you if you say "in" Long Island instead of "on."

I've read every book that I own at least twice, and I get a kick out of seeing movies on the night they open. If I know the lyrics to the song, I will sing along, whether the music is coming from a live show, the office elevator, or someone's extra-loud iPod on the train. I'd rather pretend I don't speak English than admit to a tourist I don't know how to get to where they're going. I always stop to pet the bodega cat. I like my substance with a dash of style.

DISCLAIMER: OKCupid has magically determined that my personality is "more adventurous," and while that's true in many respects, I feel it's also a bit misleading, as I've only been on a plane twice in my life. ("All my pleasures are homey ones: armchair splendor, the sedate excitements of domesticity...a mystery novel in bed...the symmetry of grocery bags sitting on the kitchen counter waiting to be unpacked...") I don't have anything against traveling, really, I just haven't gotten around to it much yet. Care to accompany me as I catch up? :)

SHOWS – THEATER:
I was one of the volunteer spellers when I saw The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee on Broadway. My word was "pakapu." I got it wrong. It was devastating. :(

SHOWS – TV:
I have something of an unhealthy affinity for HGTV and The Walking Dead.

MUSIC:
As a former college radio DJ, there's a special place in my heart for all things "alternative."

FOOD:
I could eat grilled cheese and tater tots or my mom's chicken lasagne every day of my life.
The six things I could never do without
1. Books.
2. The Internet.
3. Prescription sunglasses.
4. An unlimited MetroCard.
5. My crazy, amazing siblings.
6. A flat iron.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Color, texture, pattern, and shine.
(I spend a lot of time designing/styling things.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was 5, I requested an R2-D2–shaped cake for my birthday. The bakery called my mom twice to confirm that the cake was indeed for a girl.

You are bookish and boyish and a little bit edgy, like sci-fi and subtitles, enjoy amusement parks as much as museums, and would like to meet a dynamite girl. :)
