What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm originally from Chicago, but I came to New York a few years ago
for grad school. I'm currently working as an editor at a trade
magazine, but before that, I worked for a trade magazine in
Chicago, a newspaper group in central Illinois, an environmental
blog in Ukraine, and taught English in the Czech Republic.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Expanding the definition of "within walking distance." I love
walking around New York and consider most of Manhattan to be
walkable from Brooklyn. A great day for me would involve hours of
walking new neighborhoods or just my favorite Saturday haunts:
hitting the farmer's market, meandering around with an iced coffee,
browsing used bookstores, and then meeting friends for dinner.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite authors: Atul Gawande, David Grann, Joan Didion, Jon
Krakauer, Ian Frazier and Tony Horowitz.
My Pandora station is currently set to Of Monsters and Men, though
I've also been listening to a lot of Etta James.
Big fan of dessert and anything chocolate, salted caramel, or
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, friends, running, books, travel, dark chocolate
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Leaving the country. International trips provide the chance to use
my limited and extremely impractical foreign vocabulary. (If you'd
like to learn how to say "nose" in German, "nutmeg" in Polish, and
"ham" in Czech, look no further.) A friend and I decided our New
Year's resolution should be to take advantage of our yellow fever
immunizations and travel more.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing something like meeting friends for dinner, the occasional
movie night or watching a musical improv show. And if they hosted
the Moth storytelling events on Fridays, I would always be there.
I'm obsessed with the Moth. So great.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'll get back to you on this one ...
