My self-summary
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”
― Roald Dahl
What I’m doing with my life
I am the Director of Theatre at a school and teach/direct both middle and high school students. I am in my second year of teaching and spend a lot of time being blown away by my amazing students.
I’m really good at
Feeling feelings, surrounding myself with people who love to laugh, making guacamole, going after my big dreams, drinking whiskey, writing song parodies, and dancing like no one is watching.

Yes, sometimes this entire list takes place in one evening. (Just another Tuesday.)

On a typical Friday night I am
Doing reeeeeallllllllly super cool/fun things.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
A Sylvan Learning Center commercial (the one with the mother receiving her child's passing report card for Mother's Day) has brought me to tears.......on more than one occasion.
You should message me if
You, too, are compiling sketch comedy material based on the first (compelling) OkCupid interaction: hey.
