5′ 3″ (1.60m)
Body Type
Mostly other
Agnosticism, and very serious about it
Gemini, but it doesn’t matter
Graduated from masters program
Rather not say
Doesn’t have kids
Has dogs and likes cats
English, French (Fluently)
My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am pretending to be a blank slate. (We see what we want to see, anyway. It feels so much better to be optimistic than realistic!)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to figure out what's next so I won't be surprised. By the way, I don't drink desperately, just thought that was a hilarious answer choice!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, reasoning, thinking, teaching.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My close resemblance to Frankenstein's monster.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Some examples of my taste: Nurse Jackie, In Plain Sight, Mad Men, Weeds, Big Love, United States of Tara, The Big C, and Scandal. (Strong female leads.) I discovered binge watching with the extraordinary Orange is the New Black, then binged on Dexter, Breaking Bad, and The Good Wife. Despite my degrees in English I rarely read fiction, but love reading about psychology, the brain, perception, behavior, and why people believe weird things (such as conspiracy theories). I typically have over a dozen books checked out from the library. As for diet, I follow Michael Pollan's advice: "Eat real food, not too much, mostly plants" (although my efforts towards calorie restriction are consistently sabotaged by chocolate). Music: Mostly internet radio through my audiophile stereo system– lots of French music, both old and new, piano and vocal jazz (i.e., Ella Fitzgerald and Diana Krall, not the screechy, irritating, I've-either-got-to-turn-that-off-or-throw-myself-out-the-window kind of jazz), and contemporary hit songs. I love watching music videos on my home theater system to get the story that goes along with the song (try it, if you haven't). I find popular music energizing and mood lifting.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends, books, the internet. Times two.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whether consciousness continues after the body craps out. What my present would look like if I could go back to certain moments and hit Undo. Why my college students are so bewildered by commas and semicolons. Why the Fox News demographic is so gullible. Whether the world is savable or if we are doomed. Why anyone would want to keep up with the Kardashians. If I will ever learn how to attain perfect crèma from my vintage Pavoni espresso machine. If God hates me because even though I try, I don't exactly believe in Him... or Her. (But I mean, really, think about it– if God is either one gender or the other, then there is a penis or vagina hiding underneath those flowing white robes. I find this problematic.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Grading papers or procrastinating (exactly what I'm doing right now, as it is indeed a Friday).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once really believed that by practicing Transcendental Meditation twice a day I would become enlightened within five years. That's what they promised, so at age 20 I moved from NYC to Palo Alto to learn the technique in a Stanford classroom filled with flowers and incense. I even became a TM teacher to speed up the process. After those five years went by and none of us had achieved Cosmic Consciousness, we were told "ten years." When those were up, they said it would surely happen "within this lifetime." A few more years went by and nobody had hit the Nirvana jackpot, so they added ".........or maybe the next lifetime."
(I finally caught on.)
