My self-summary
While driving with a friend one day, I was scrounging around for quarters to feed the parking meter. In my search, I retrieved a can of cat food from the side of my door and said, "Here, hold this a minute." She stared blankly at me and then down at the can in her hand until finally she remarked, "It's weird. You LOOK so normal on the surface, but..."

I guess she's right. I'm quirky, creative and a bit disorganized, but I'm also practical, hyper-critical of my work and art, and like a little routine to keep me grounded.

A few years ago I moved back home to Denver, but I have lived everywhere from Rome to Boise (in that order) and have learned that every place I go has something incredible to offer. But let's face it—it's always more fun to explore in good company.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm passionate about the arts. I have a background in photography, art history and Italian language, and, having spent a few years in Italy, it's safe to say that I'm an Italophile. My current job primarily involves curating exhibitions and organizing educational programs.

As a more general response to this question, I'd say that I'm trying to prioritize and enjoy important things, such as my family, friends and new interests. Dirty laundry has to be washed and errands have to be run, but I don't want to miss out on my life, so I try to give everything that I do the proper hierarchical ranking (insert British accent here).
I’m really good at
I'm good at giving an honest opinion, encouraging people to be themselves and cooking tomato basil risotto.
The first things people usually notice about me
I think my smile is the first thing that people notice about me, but I'm not sure; I'll have to take a poll.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Hands down, favorite book of the year: Jitterbug Perfume (you're guaranteed to love it or hate it).

Movies: The Princess Bride, Il Postino, The Lives of Others (which is incredible, but so depressing that you can only watch it once), 500 Days of Summer, Amelie, and Young Frankenstein. Believe it or not, that last one was my favorite childhood movie. My sister and I used to fight over whether we'd watch her pick (The Sound of Music) or mine.

Music: Ray LaMontagne, Citizen Cope, Beck, Norah Jones, ZZ Ward, Florence + the Machine, Nikka Costa, Adele, Pete Yorn, Paul Simon, Regina Spektor, Feist, The Xx, Madonna, Fiona Apple, Michael Franti, Pavarotti, David Keogh, Porterdavis. . .

Food: Ummm, my friends nicknamed me Snax, so narrowing down my favorite foods might be a bit of a challenge. Does tiramisu count? And don't let the photos fool you—eating may be one of my favorite activities.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about things like: Would that make a good photograph? Is that sentence grammatically correct? Did I follow that dance move well enough? Are we really still debating women's reproductive rights? How much energy am I saving when I unplug all of my chargers? Does that shirt smell fresh enough to wear again?

I also spend a lot of time thinking about unrealistic desires, such as teleportation. I'd like to relax on the couch, telling stories and eating homemade cookies with my friend from St. Louis one night, and meander bridges and narrow passageways with my friend from Venice then next. I feel fortunate to know wonderful people in diverse places, but with my loved ones scattered across the globe, I'm left wishing that I could compress space and time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Most Friday nights I'm out doing some form of partner dancing, having dinner and a drink with friends, or at home watching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Don't tempt me. A few years back, a friend wrote and performed a slam poem about how freely I shared a certain detail about myself (one that most would consider quite private). After that I thought I might take it down a notch.

That said, I'm still very open and honest and I hope that (eventually) you will be too. Otherwise, it would feel like I'm missing out on something good—which would be getting to know the "real" you, of course.
