I moved to New York last year from Houston. I’ve moved a lot
(Oklahoma → Austin → Boston → LA → Austin → Houston → NYC), but
this is where I’ve always wanted to end up, and I completely love
the city. There are a million things to do here; send me your
A good friend said it best: “I like you because you always want to
do stuff.” Sometimes exhausted but rarely bored. ISFJ.
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 at a literary agency and plan to have my own
agency someday. In previous versions of my life, I practiced law
and taught high school English. I write a bit.
I’m really good at

Just a few of each...
Books: Middlesex, Pride and Prejudice, The Sun Also Rises, The
Portable Dorothy Parker. And so. many. more.
Movies: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Wedding Crashers, The Princess
Bride, Midnight in Paris. I tend to see more independent films but
re-watch lighter fare.
TV: The Newsroom, Modern Family, and, if I'm being honest, Gilmore
Music: Current alternative like The Killers. The Indie Dance
station on Pandora. 90's alternative/grunge like Nirvana and Veruca
Salt. A smattering of everything else.
Food: Caesar salad, very rare steak, and French fries would be my
last-meal menu, but I love trying new foods/cuisines/restaurants.
Pizza and tasting menus: both excellent.
Hedwig and the Angry Inch is the greatest thing I've seen on
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Friends around the country and the world
- Negronis in the summer and Manhattans in the winter
- My trainer, who kicks my ass in the best way
- Theatres of all sorts
- Sunglasses (I have weirdly sensitive eyes.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My dreams and how to achieve them. Where I want to travel to next
and how to make it happen. Increasingly, how to make my lifestyle
better match my ideals.
And whether I'm going to get a puppy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends or crashed out on the couch. Either way, there
will probably be drinks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

“I want all that stupid old shit, like letters and sodas.”
