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 (it's a reflex reaction — sometimes I don't even realize I'm doing it). 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.
What I’m doing with my life
Putting the commas in the right places.
I’m really good at
Puzzles.
Napping.
Karaoke.
Getting lost.
Picking out perfect birthday presents.
Constructing elaborate, lunatic Halloween costumes.
The first things people usually notice about me
Most likely the white streak in my hair. It's been gaining prominence since I was about 22.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BOOKS:
Almost anything by Margaret Atwood
The Corrections
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
The Hunger Games (I know, I know...)

MOVIES:
Aliens, Inception, The Usual Suspects; Little Miss Sunshine, Run Lola Run; Pride & Prejudice, The Princess Bride...

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.)
On a typical Friday night I am
unwinding.
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 should message me if
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. :)
