Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am equal parts French and American blooded, with that I’ve also
spent an equal amount of time on either side of the Atlantic.
Born in the oldest hospital in Paris (founded in 651) I
subsequently spent the first nine years of my life there and its
Western suburbs. By nature a ferociously independent and
rambunctious child, I was utterly crushed by the French educational
and somewhat just wasn’t in my element for a few years until came
the US of A. Scenes of red corvettes, wind blown hair and movie
star glasses became a reality. I was moving to the training grounds
of the NY Yankees and to the set of Harmony Korine's latest oeuvre
Spring Breakers, the good old Tampa Bay area, FL. Out went my cute
flowered dresses, little girl head-bands, French leather shoes and
most importantly the accent. Within 6 months I had the spandex
shorts, teased, hair-sprayed side bang, oversized puffy-paint
shirts and Keds...and I was already trying to convince my mother a
fourth grader should be able to start shaving her legs at 9…Sheesh
[Disclaimer-in reality somewhat not so black and white, more for
effect- France was/is in reality an amazing part of my life.
So it goes from that time on, flipping from one coast to the other
every few years. I've been in NYC (on and off-most recently got
back from living in Copenhagen and am tempted to move to Barcelona
in the next year or two) for 9 years and I'm still drawn to this
energy as much as I was that first Indian summer afternoon the
cabbie took BQE exit 32 and stopped mere feet further in front of
my new abode.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Design researcher who gets to study all sorts of wonderful people
to help advise on new products and services...
And for a bit more clarity I'm a mix between an astronaut and an
athlete. What are you?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Filling my loved ones' bellies with scrumptiousness, being a
fiercely loyal friend, being a connector, sharing my honest opinion
when you ask for it, going going going and those around me
wondering where I get the energy to keep going.

That girl's got an ass on her, or rather that I’m easily
approachable and at ease with strangers or that I’m wearing
extremely weather inappropriate shoes (heels in snow, rain-boots on
a warm day?!!).

Currently reading: am between Infinite Jest (sorry gave up on that
one after rereading the first 100 pages again-wiki recap was
great), Jitterburg Perfume and Cheri with the occasional film
script thrown in there to further distract me.

Food: s'il vous plait? I'm what you call 'une vraie gourmande'!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I might do next with my time now, and then really what I'm
doing with my life, making up stories about those same people you
see on the subway platform every morning, my future bike touring
adventures, why Mikhail Prokhorov and Bruce Ratner had to bring the
NJ Nets to Brooklyn and subsequently all this construction outside
my window, so maybe then plotting escaping the city for a few
hours, days or months but up until now consistently coming back to

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Somewhat tired but most probably gallivanting about town.

When I'm nervous I hum a lot.
