I started a small company that produces proofreading software. It's one of the most exciting things I've ever done, but when I go out, I switch the topic away from work quickly (do you really want to hear about correct hyphenation?). Mostly that means talking about music, dancing, cooking, food, cocktails and movies.
I do a lot of dancing, especially swing dancing. I’m usually out dancing twice per week. In London I ran a monthly blues night with a dance class and live music. In New York I go and see a lot of live music (Mona's, St Mazie, Pegu, Terra Blues, and others).
And I do a lot of cooking. It’s not easy in my little, Chelsea kitchen, but I persist. I’m always on the lookout for ingredients and take an immediate liking to anyone who has advice on good produce.
I'm also an expert trip planner. The last adventure was live music in Nawlins. Before that it was whisky tasting in Scotland.
Everyone in New York says I sound British. Everyone in London says I sound American. And people from pretty much everywhere say that I eat a lot of bagels.
Before Sunrise, Three Colors, Grand Illusion, almost anything by Almodóvar, Rohmer, Wilder or Buster Keaton (and anything with Fred & Ginger or Cary Grant). Recently: Boyhood.
The Little Prince, Watching the English, Generation X, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, Love in the Time of Cholera.
Treme (still can’t believe it got cancelled), Breaking Bad, The Wire, Twin Peaks, West Wing, Seinfeld.
Otis Redding, Stevie Wonder, Miles Davis, Townes Van Zandt, Warren Zevon, Allen Toussaint, Tom Waits, Billie Holiday, Lightnin' Hopkins, and almost anything that came out on Chess Records or Stax. I also suffer from a minor obsession with Sam Cooke.
Too many to list, but especially Vietnamese, Korean, Mexican, barbeque and deli food. I'm on a quest to find the best bagel in New York (though I doubt anything can beat the mini-everything bagel at Absolute).
I'm addicted to This American Life and The Moth. I just told my first story at a Moth Storyslam, and I'm told my NPR nerd-cred has gone up enormously as a result!
Also, my background is in international development and I'm very political. I really want to do something that will help make sure the next President is a Democrat (whoever she may be).
In truth, some nights I have to work too. I’m my own boss, but guilt kicks in if I haven’t done enough work during the day.
I go for strong women who can express themselves. If you haven't written anything in your profile, it isn't going to work.
