Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've always liked a good story. This has gotten me into all kinds
I have wanderlust like you wouldn't believe. It's taken me to all
of the continents - even the one covered in ice and penguins. I
sure like coming home though.

like life to be a little outside of the box.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm at a startup that makes a really neat cooking device for a
method called sous vide. In my spare time I dabble with writing,

Books: Steinbeck is my soulmate. "Oh the Places You'll Go" is my
comfort book. "You Are Here" was a game changer. Cookbooks are a

but won't ever say no to a 2 a.m. street vendor (veggie) hot dog.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I like Friday nights spent curled up in a warm blanket under the
stars. I like Friday nights that makes me shake my head on a
Saturday morning. I like Friday nights spent dancing around the
kitchen in my pajamas while making pasta. I like Friday nights
debating new ideas over old whiskey.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes (okay often) I start my day blaring "Valerie" (my name)
by Steve Windwood and dancing around the house triumphantly.
