Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey, I'm Caity!
I'm a through and through Jersey Girl who was accidentally born in
NYC. I love the smell of vinyl records, watching behind the scenes
footage from film sets, and looking at fresh snow (but never being
in it). For monetary and creative purposes, I'm a video editor, and
I'm currently working towards my degree in Film Production. After
school, I have this great fantasy of moving to New Orleans to work
on productions there, and singing in a little jazz band. Fingers
crossed that I can realize that!
I try to stay politically active and I love participating in
political discussions, particularly conversations about feminism
(wait, where are you going?) and race relations.
When I'm not attempting to smash the patriarchy or dismantle the
power structure, or, you know, working, I can generally be found
downing chai lattes, discovering music on Pandora, or dancing
embarrassingly. Sometimes, I do all three at the same time.
Clearly, I'm a party animal.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now, I’m pursuing my BFA in Film Production in Philadelphia,
and I’m trying to build my client-base for my video work through
jobs, internships, and freelance work. Come May, I'll be working
for a production company in Brooklyn
— I'm super excited for
Oh, and I’m also binge-watching far too many TV shows on Netflix.
It’s a problem.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
After studying voice for 11 years, I think I can confidently say
that I'm a good singer — but if we ever meet, you can be the
On a much less impressive level, I'm really good at making grilled
cheese sandwiches, doing my makeup on a bus, getting into fights on
the internet, and having really intense daydreams.

I’m a nerd, so the books
I like tend to be based in social
science or history. At the top of my list are books like Zealot
by Reza Aslan,
by Steven D. Levitt and Stephan J. Dubner, and
For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is
by Ntozake Shange. Oh, and How to be Black
Thurston because it’s profound and damn hilarious.
I really love a wide range of films
. My all-time favorite
movie is Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing
, but since
I'm a documentarian, I highly recommend movies like Morgan
, Alexandra Pelosi's The Trials of Ted
, and the late Maysles Brother's Grey Gardens
I don’t think I’m picky when it comes to TV shows
has been my favorite
show for the past 8 years, so I’m sincerely mourning its end. I
also follow Call The Midwife
, Downton Abbey
, Jane the Virgin
, I like to kick it really old school with artists
like Sam Cooke
, Nat King Cole
, Ray Charles
, Fats Waller
anything composed by Harold Arlen
. When I listen to
modern artists, I tend to hone in on musicians who are heavily
influenced by Jazz like Amy Winehouse
, Janelle Monáe
When it comes to food
, I’ll eat most anything edible.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friday's Mozzarella Sticks — I know that they're made
of government funded genetically modified blah blah blah, and that
they will most likely result in my developing a third leg or
something, but they're so darn good!
Hair products — Lots and lots of hair products (see:
My thumbs — Two thumbs waaaaay up for evolution on that
High Heels — It's not that easy being under 5 feet
Disney Movies — Everyone has their vices, mine just happen
to be comically benign.
The cool side of the pillow — I don't think this needs
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about how I'm going to make the
world a better place — through educating myself and others
around me, through treating people kindly, and through my work.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I'm staying in, I love to throw on a record or two and just get
lost in the music.
If I'm going out with my friends, I love getting together and
watching a movie or two, or driving down the shore to watch the
sunset, or just all going to a coffee shop and catching up. I have
