Brand new to this. I've lived all over. South Africa, Australia,
CT, MASS, CA then NYC. I cook (well), I'm a gardening nerd and New
Orleans jazz is on heavy rotation on my record player right now.
Jazz, The Band and a side of the Beatles. I go through odd stages
of being obsessed with France. Day dreamer. Chelsae Market is my
happy place but people that use the term "foodie" upset me. Bit of
a hopeless romantic & Christmas is my absolute favorite time of
Brand new to CT
What I’m doing with my life
Chasing my dream as a Landscape architect. Was in publishing with
Vice, then the record industry in artist management & event
production, fashion for a hot second, for the past two years I was
GM at Sway (nightclub down on Spring St). I also work with troubled
kids each summer, takes a knuckle head to know one.
I’m really good at
Shaking ass, throwing random french day picnics on piers, China
town strolls, enjoying the rain, dinner and I'm oddly proficient
with a shotgun.
The first things people usually notice about me
The odd inflections I place on certain words. Curse of being raised
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Pablo Neruda, Amelie, Annie Hall, Hud, Caddyshack, Ghost busters,
any John Hughes, Love Actually, A Very Long Engagement, Royal
Tenenbaums, Nowhere in Africa. Anything food related a la Ruth
Reichl, cook books (slowly conquering the Thomas Keller trilogy),
sucker for Peter Beard (i will own one one day) & Soul,
Standards, Beirut, anything by Louis Armstrong, 60's & 70's
peppered with a little Guns & Roses (appetite)
The six things I could never do without
A wooden spoon, record player, my garden, the kruger national park,
family & npr on a sunday afternoon.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My garden, whats for dinner & the Knicks (I have an ugly
relationship with the Knicks). Trying to shoot this from the hip.
On a typical Friday night I am
Cooking, drinking wine & listening to Louis Armstrong.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have been known to save drowning insects in swimming pools.
You should message me if
If your idea of a Saturday afternoon well spent is casually
strolling through a farmers market figuring out what to make for
dinner quickly followed by a drink to ponder our plan of attack for
And if your kinda a smart ass.
So far ct freaks me out, just sayin. If you feel like a fish out of
