Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up on the eastern sea board and can’t seem to escape the
inevitable fact that because I was born there I will end up
there….New England grabs my heart in a way I hate so much I can’t
help but love. As a teenager I was rebellious, unruly, and would go
to great lengths to avoid sitting in class. I loathed school from
kindergarten until 11th grade when I left public school and east
coast to go to an “alternative” school. Since then education and
education reform has become a crucial aspect of my life. I’ve
somehow managed to go to three high schools and four colleges and
in the process moved from cities, to towns of 200, and from
mountains to deserts. I liked to move around a lot, but I’m finally
starting to get a little tired of it.

-I enjoy cooking for other people, when it's just me, as much as i
love food i find myself eating the same things out of convenience
and economic reasons. But I love making beautiful fancy dinners for
friends and family or anyone. I was a chef for about two years, so
i can't escape my love to cook.

-Most things Dave Eggers, Vonnegut, Fantasy, and anything based on
reality or makes me question.
-I will go ahead and just say most romantic comedies and fantasy
(Pans Labyrinth). I've been known to fall asleep to sleepless in
Seattle...ironic no. If I'm going to brainwash myself I at least
want it to feel good. But that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy other
things as well, I'm pretty open as long as it won't scare me.
-This American Life- enough said there
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My sister and our one-zies
2) All things with two wheels, specifically my bike but not limited
3) Long Nights and early mornings....rooftops
4) Dive Bars with pool tables, juke boxes that have Tom Waits, and
5) the environment and people who care
6) Men in button ups or flannels...totally different style i know
but both equally important
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

-Playing lawn games
-new recipes and themed dinner parties
