My self-summary
I was born and raised in Brooklyn and I love living in New York - there's always something to do. Whenever I can escape from the exciting world of corporate law I really enjoy exploring the city.

I spend my free time reading, exploring museums, while I'm not much of a treadmill person I love taking new workout classes (classpass is amazing), and of course exploring the constant supply of new bars that are always popping up in the east village.
What I’m doing with my life
Exploring new bars and restaurants, playing board games over wine with friends, and trying to figure out what I want to do next.
I’m really good at
Making things - scarves and sweaters, furniture, gazpacho, mixed drinks.
Games (although I've been told I can get a little competitive)
Dancing
