My self-summary
I'm a journalist based out of D.C.. Lover of strong coffee, dance parties, witty banter, animals, great American novels, tennis, volleyball, campfires, unexpected conversations, international adventures, obscure pop culture references, bad puns and soul music.
What I’m doing with my life
Covering global women's rights and working on a TV script on the side. Also watering my plants on a semi-regular basis, slaying crossword puzzles and scrabble boards, and trying to keep life a bit weird.
I’m really good at
Parallel parking, writing, making the perfect mixtape, peeling crawfish, twerking, solving other people's relationship problems.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been called a "tall drink of water," but I have yet to figure out what that means aside from the tall part. It's a compliment, right? I don't even care.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Ohhhhh man here goes. Books: Wuthering Heights, The Sun Also Rises, The Great Gatsby, The Phantom Tollbooth (#TBT), anything by Junot Diaz, Tom Robbins, Toni Morrison, or Hemingway. Really into non-fiction and biographies at the moment. Favorite movies are Pulp Fiction, Royal Tenenbaums, Dead Poets Society and Good Will Hunting ("It's not your fault!") I watch True Detective and House of Cards, and I'm devastated that Breaking Bad is over. I'm all over the place with music, but I especially love 60s soul, 90s hip-hop, Robyn (yasssss!), Holy Ghost!, Van Morrison, the Beatles, the Stones, and Radiohead. D'Angelo's new album is incredible.
The six things I could never do without
Oxygen, sunlight, food, water, exercise and guacamole.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What the one thing is that Meatloaf wouldn't do for love. Whether cheesecake is technically a cake or a pie. Why Congress is so fucked up and has so few women in it. Maybe I just answered my own question?
On a typical Friday night I am
I try to avoid typical Friday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I absolutely hate online dating, like probably more than you do. But I am willing to do this to expand the universe of awesome people I might meet.

That said, if one more person writes "u" instead of "you" in a message to me on this thing I might go insane, quit my job, move to a deserted island and throw all my electronic devices in the ocean.
You should message me if
You've got soul. You know who you are and what you want. You know what it feels like to laugh so hard actual tears come out of your eyes, and to get so absorbed in a book that you read it standing up on the metro. You are genuinely curious about people and difference cultures, and you're plugged into what's going on in the world. You're kind to waiters, you respect women, you can laugh at yourself, and you don't take shirtless selfies at the gym. You seek out adventures. Bonus points if you like to dance.
