I sing. a lot. I was in a co-ed acapella group in college, so spontaneous harmonizing occurs frequently. I also play the alto sax and piano. I'm an ardent feminist, I've worked for women's rights nonprofits and am very passionate about my feminist activism. After quitting my nonprofit work last year to travel, I'm happy to be back in New York.
I like the beer, yummy food, and brazilian coffee. i really like pickles and milanos. Not together. I have a passion for pho noodles. Beards are a plus. I left my dog in DC. he is a beagle mutt named after a disney movie. he barks at the wind. He's special.
I have a few tats, small and meaningful. I'm planning more, some black and grey illustrations. I like going to all kinds of concerts minus rap and country. I dig the modern art. I lived in Brazil and am extremely obsessed with the country. I speak Portuguese pretty well, as well as Spanish and a little bit of Hindi. I like being independent, but Im looking for someone to have adventures with. It's not a deal breaker, but definitely makes you more attractive if you're interested in feminism, women's rights history and feminist literature. I can name all the state capitals. If you can name two or more legends of the hidden temple teams, a very good sign indeed.
Movies-not a huge movie gal, more of a music/books person. But i do love "Once", "darjeeling limited", "Broken English", "Very Young Girls", "Conversations with Other Women", "Erin Brokovich", "High Fidelity", all documentaries
