Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved to New York about two years ago from Texas and just moved
from Manhattan to Williamsburg this spring. I’ve moved a lot, 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
My personality is sort of Dorothy Parker meets Taylor Swift, and I
dress like Blair Waldorf meets Joan from Mad Men. If that made any
sense to you, we're off to a great start.
Here's a collection of things that I think I am:
Loyal friend. Voracious reader. Frequent flyer. Indiscriminate
movie watcher. Bon vivant. Theatregoer. Fun instigator. Lindy
hopper-in-training. Museum ambler. Football and basketball fan.
Regular exerciser. Neighborhood explorer.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a literary agent--I represent authors and sell their books to
publishers. It's amazing. In previous versions of my life, I
practiced law and taught high school English. I write a bit.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Literary analysis (super useful, that one)
- Making friends wherever I go and keeping in touch with them
- Planning trips
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

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
- Regular exercise (I've been working on this over the past
- 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’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Now that I'm living in Brooklyn, I decided I needed to re-learn how
to ride a bike. It's harder than that stupid expression would lead
you to believe (i.e., there's a picture out there of me lying on
the ground laughing, with a bike on top of me). I need more

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're smart, witty, and fun. You like books. You want to grab a
drink. You have a favorite Williamsburg spot you'd like to take me
to; I'm still exploring the neighborhood.
