My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Just moved here from Brooklyn, NY, which I realize is not an uncommon migration these days... I promise I'm unique in other ways! And I'm from Milwaukee, WI originally--so my cheesehead tendencies and Midwestern demeanor still outweigh any bad habits I may have picked up in NYC (I hope!).

I'm all about the details. Not in a nit-picky sense, but the details of a day, a book, a meal, a painting, and definitely a person are what interest me most. I will listen to the same line of music over and over if it strikes a chord with me. I can (usually) pick out exactly what spices were used in a complex sauce. A good line of poetry will stay with me for weeks. And it's the same with my relationships...not looking for anything ornate or overblown--simply something simple but full of beautiful, memorable moments. I'm hoping to meet someone who likes getting lost--either literally or figuratively--in the excitement of every day.

While I'm nowhere near being a great chef, I do love experimenting in the kitchen--and reading/collecting cookbooks--and I try to eat fairly healthy although I'd be perfectly satisfied with pizza and good beer every night thanks to my WI roots (Leinenkugel's anyone??) I also love live music--anything in the folk/acoustic genre is usually up my alley, and am always up for checking out a hole-in-the wall venue or splurging when someone good is in town.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in publishing, so I pretty much read/talk about books for a living (mostly fiction, memoir, and cookbooks), but I still try to write my own stuff (fiction, poetry) and take painting and cooking classes in my free time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading fast, getting lost (aka, wandering around finding fun, unexpected places), dinner parties, cooking/baking without recipes (or at least taking creative license), writing funny songs/poems, harmonizing, making connections, being spontaneous.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Other people's lives and happiness levels...I guess it's the writer in me. I could people-watch for hours if I let myself.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Catching up with friends, seeing a show, or catching a plane/train/ride outta here for the weekend.
