My self-summary
I guess I'll do this chronologically, though I'll skip over all the freudian stuff. Don't worry, I have a perfectly healthy relationship with the fam... sad they live 3k miles away.

Okay... I grew up in Jersey, went to college in Michigan then back to NYC to study screenwriting. Follow the breadcrumbs out to LA. Moved in with family out here for the requisite six months in the guest house... pool, tennis court... it was fun playing the role of spoiled brat for a bit, but I got this once in a lifetime chance to bond with little cousins who are now like siblings for life. I'm pretty lucky on the family front; I feel like I have enough amazing family for three people. Add a little perspective, and it's not hard to realize that "spoiled" isn't so much mansion and hot tub as it is having amazing people in your life. Not to disparage a hot tub...

I've been in LA for 11 years now, settled by the beach. I still play piano almost every day - think more Billy Joel/Stevie Wonder/Ben Folds than Chopin. Huge political nerd, my dream job would be a staff writer on the West Wing. I know, it's over, I've moved on, but it's still buried in there, like being a princess or an astronaut. Prince, I meant prince. A girl I met in a bar in Barcelona (who, of course, turned out to be an oncologist from Orange County) told me that I reminded her of Ted Mosby... for whatever that's worth.

What else... I love the Mets, the Jets, and Michigan football, though they break my heart. I have a history of training for crazy races. Two full marathons and a triathlon so far... just broke my personal record for a 5k in the Santa Monica Xmas run, and I highly recommend the first half of the San Francisco marathon (something magical about running 'cross the Golden Gate). Also fell in love with Yoga this year. Found an amazing place in Venice, more athletic than spiritual, but one of these days I'll get myself in a 110 degree room, give that whole thing a whirl. Back on the wanderlust front, last summer I spent 10 days in Spain. It was the trip of a lifetime (so far), some serious perspective, a cultural/culinary/sangria adventure with a minor international incident. Planning the next trip in my head already. Maybe South America, southeast Asia... we'll see. Had an amazing time in New Orleans for Jazz Fest!

In short, I love dogs (have a beagle mix), mountains, good mexican food, NPR and long hair on a clever girl. Curious to see where this goes...
What I’m doing with my life
I supplement my wavering creative aspirations... still hoping to end up writing features or tv... though my educational consulting practice, which is effectively a trumped-up title for a high-end SAT tutor/admissions consultant, keeps me in Whole Foods shopping trips. It's a pretty great life. I make my own hours, have plenty of time to write, take 4-6 weeks vacation a year, make a great living, meet some incredible people and like to think I have an impact on kids' lives. Some of them, anyway.
I’m really good at
Playing the piano, and I can fake my way around an acoustic guitar enough to make a campfire fun. And writing emails. I am probably more confident in my writing than anything else. Sadly, however, I think I've come to terms with the fact that email might be my best form. Not much of a market for a hot shit email writer. Working on that...
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, then my eye lashes. They're natural.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Big into John Krakauer, Chuck Palahuick and Dave Eggers right now. I tend to find an author and devour everything he/she wrote. Oh, and TED talks rock. Not sure that fits here, also not sure I care.

Lots and lots and lots... love Charlie Kaufman, Wes Anderson, Coen Bros, Todd Haynes, Kubrick, Woody, PTA, Spike Jonze. Love classic funny, Groundhog Day, Spies Like Us, Fletch, A Fish Called Wanda, Mel Brooks, Jason Segal/Paul Rudd-ian comedy... Documentary nerd.

Gave up live TV, experiment with Hulu and Netflix is now a year in, and no regrets. Daily Show, anything Sorkin, Bill Maher & Colbert, Charlie Rose, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Parenthood, How I Met Your Mother, Modern Family, Californication, Top Chef, Louie, HBO... "George Bush doesn't care about black puppets."

Grew up on classic rock, got into funk, blues... a smattering would be Phish, Beatles, Doors, Floyd, Talking Heads, Zeppelin, Paul Simon, the Dead, Billy Joel, Jeff Buckley, Bob Marley, My Morning Jacket, Dylan, Cohen, Dawes, John Butler Trio, Ben Folds, Alabama Shakes, etc.

I'm a foodie. Love to cook, not a restaurant I wouldn't try...

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything... I think way too much. Working on that, too.

All over the place. Or home, sometimes home.

I own a pair of Crocs. Never wear them out, but judge away...
