For me, the definition of adventure doesn’t always include an
itinerary. Whether it’s organizing an all day un-holiday party, a
spontaneous karaoke crawl through K-Town, or random Nerf gun
battles on Thanksgiving, I dare myself in day-to-day life. Turning
daily happenings into new experiences is my hidden talent.
Even at the office, I’m dubbed “The Minister of Fun.” Snack Wars is
my recent social experiment, where two snacks go head to head every
week. The first to be eaten is the winner and moves on to the next
round. Our biggest battle yet was between Milano cookies and
chocolate chip, but Milano won the championship. Unfortunately, my
team (Goldfish) failed horribly. I guess I should stick to fantasy
My match wouldn’t take life too seriously and would have a wit
about her. She’d appreciate lazy Saturday moments with just the two
of us, be okay with me cursing/crying every Sunday over the Jets,
and have a knack for pulling more awesome out of me.

I’m a freelance web developer and designer, creating sites and concepts for clients. I also teach a web development class for women -- it’s fun to teach them tech talk!
I’m really good at
Finding good blues clubs in the city. My favorites to pop into are

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I’ll travel to next; it’s been awhile since I’ve taken a trip out of the city for fun. Las Vegas, Amsterdam and San Fran are top of my destination wish list for 2016.
On a typical Friday night I am
Catching up with friends at Souths, laughing at an Improv comedy event, sneaking in one more run on the treadmill, or walking the Williamsburg Bridge — gotta love that view.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wish Mayor Bloomberg would create a tourist walking lane so us
natives could go about our normal lives.
You should message me if
You’re playful, up for a random escapade around town and appreciate
technology. You’d understand the ever-changing schedule of a
freelancer and have a fun social life. Bonus if you know what Comic
