Hi! First of all, please allow me to take a moment to thank you for
liking my photo enough to read the rest of my profile thinger. I
think I'm pretty cute, too. So you're off to a terrific
I'm a native New Yorker who speaks sarcasm as a first language. My
social circle is small but incredibly close -- I grew up an only
child so my friends are like my siblings, and a lot of them have
been around for a LONG time (I work on a daily basis with the guy
who has been my best friend since I was five years old, for
example. I was even the best man at his wedding last summer.) I
cannot believe my luck that I've somehow achieved my dream of
making my living as a writer. Now looking for an equally facetious,
smart, nerdy, artsy girl to come home to every day. Does that make
me sound too "Aw, shucks?"
What I’m doing with my life
Once upon a time I was a struggling writer, working at a talent
agency, representing stars of the stage and screen to make ends
meet. My best friend, who was equally unhappy with his job at a
major record label, said to me, "Hey, why don't we start a music
blog?" I thought that sounded like a fun idea, so we did.
Three years later, we were making enough money to quit our day jobs
and do the blog full-time.
So yeah I have pretty much the best gig ever. NBD.
I’m really good at
Writing of pretty much any variety is my first love. Even when I
had one of those awful jobs where you sit in a cubicle and blah
blah blah, writing e-mails and memos was always my favorite part of
the job. I also happen to think I'm pretty funny, assuming you
don't mind sarcasm. Of course, nothing I've typed here thus far has
been funny, but, y'know. It's an online dating site and I'm new at
this. Cut me some slack.
The first things people usually notice about me
My stunning green eyes and girlish figure?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
In no particular order: "The Great Gatsby," "The Sun Also Rises,"
"Snow Crash," "White Jazz," "The Rules of Attraction," "Lolita,"
"The Road," "The Shining," anything by Sarah Vowell or David Mamet,
"The Dirt" by Motley Crue (possibly the most entertaining thing
ever). I am slightly embarrassed by how much I enjoyed and how
quickly I consumed "The Hunger Games" trilogy.
I'm a HUGE film nerd and see/watch a ton of movies, so this is a
hard question to answer. I love all kinds of movies in all kinds of
genres, as long as they're well-told stories. Some favorite
directors include Stanley Kubrick, Terrence Malick, Alfred
Hitchcock, Woody Allen, Christopher Nolan, Steven Spielberg, David
Fincher, The Coen Brothers, Spike Jonze... really, if you want to
talk about movies, just say so. I can ramble for hours.
Television: "Arrested Development," "Game of Thrones," "The
Sopranos," "30 Rock," "Modern Family," "Community," old "Twilight
Zone" episodes. Currently obsessed with/crushing on Amy
Food: Chicken makhani from the Pakistani Teahouse in Tribeca, the
rigatoni with chicken and mushrooms in pink sauce from Pepe Verde
in the West Village, anything from Buttermilk Channel in Brooklyn,
and Pasta a la Me from me.
Music is also a HUGE part of my life, and I write about hard rock
music for a living. But I have very diverse tastes: Guns N' Roses,
Faith No More, Living Colour, Alice in Chains, Muse, Agnes Obel,
Fiona Apple, Baroness, Mastodon, Florence + The Machine, Hans
Zimmer, The Rolling Stones, Sigur Ros, Nine Inch Nails, Phil Ochs,
Martha Wainwright, Satie, Saint-Saens... and Ice Cube's "The
Predator" will forever remain my favorite hip-hop album. Shrug.
The six things I could never do without
Brain, heart, liver, at least one lung, at least one kidney, art in
all its various forms.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Storytelling; specifically, the art of storytelling. Also, that big
volcano under Yellowstone Park. That thing is scary, man!
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, probably either at a concert, a movie, or a dive
bar. Or a concert or movie taking place at a dive bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Since I was about seven years old, the way I've remembered the
difference in the spellings of the words "desert" and "dessert" is
as follows: "dessert" has two "S"es, because you always want some
You should message me if
You want to get a drink and nerd out over any topic related to the
arts for hours and hours and hours. Or at least until we finish our
