After being tortured at UChicago for four years, I ran off to the Big Apple to pursue my modeling dreams at a French company ... turned out it was an investment bank. Realizing my mistake, I left the States and have been bouncing around Eastern Europe,the Middle East and Asia since. Recently decided to go for an MBA and am back in Chicago.
What I’m doing with my life
Expanding my apartment's balcony garden (decided to sustain my lettuce & tomato needs), playing backgammon, grumpy cat memes, compulsively watch x-files reruns, planning to adopt a teacup piglet, planning my next vacation... Bali perhaps?
I’m really good at
Discussing current events with people who have different
perspectives -- and knowing when to "accidentally" turn off gchat
if the conversation takes a turn for the worse
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes, my curly hair, and my sarcastic sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books/Authors: Wild Sheep Chase, The Psychopath Test, Good Omens, Crime & Punishment, The Economist, Calvin & Hobbes, Joy of Mixology, Tiger Heads Snake Tails
Movies: Fifth Element, Pulp Fiction, Snatch, Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, Night Watch, George Romero movies, 28 Days Later, Indiana Jones (the old ones), Battle Royale, Paprika, Howl's Moving Castle
Shows: Veep, Colbert Report, Modern Family, The Office, 30 Rock, Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Workaholics, Peepshow, X-files, Tosh.0
Music: Pretty much whatever comes along
Food: Lately having a strange obsession with oysters, sashimi, and pretty much anything that's new and exciting (I've been trying to find an Uzbek restaurant)
The six things I could never do without
Sparkling water (it's just more fun than regular)
The Hubble Space Telescope
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to survive the impending zombie apocalypse, and what whiskey would be best paired with it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Loitering in front of the corner store ... gotta keep it real.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once ate an entire box of clementines in one sitting.
You should message me if
If you're an aspiring tea or espresso aficionado, because I don't know much about either and would like to learn.
(Also, if you share my interests and think we could have an amusing conversation over light snacks.)
