Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in the theatre. My parents ran a summer-stock my entire
life, and I did around ten plays a year until I was in my mid
twenties. I ran the snack bar at age eleven, and ran the paint shop
at seventeen, all while being the resident kid for any shows that
needed a child on stage. I was an astonishingly bad actor as a
child. Like, kid from The Phantom Menace quality. I got pretty good
eventually, but thinking about myself in Camelot still makes me
feel a bit ill.
Currently I manage a high end Italian restaurant. I like my job
quite a bit, even if it regularly requires pacifying the
I love to cook. I spend at least one day a week making something
elaborate from scratch. It doesn't always end well. That's what
delivery is for.
For fun, I generally do things with friends like play cards, board
games, and going about town. I have the good fortune to know a lot
of smart, fun, and talented people. Please don't tell any of them I
said that, I have a reputation to maintain.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, taking random classes, learning about anything that
strikes my fancy, and spending the maximum amount of time I can
surrounded by people I love. Assistant directing a movie
I really try to learn 5-10 things every day. Not for any particular
reason, I just want to understand everything. EVERYTHING. Part of
my nature is the need to constantly find out how things work. I
consequently don't like watching illusionists.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Board games, card games, volleyball, cooking, and internet-fu. I
also have a really good memory, which isn't always super fun.
Possibly okay at painting, acting, singing, and annunciation.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If the subway system is any indicator, I really look like I know
how to get wherever the tourists want to go.
If I took a poll though, I think most people notice my sense of
humor and my voice first. I sound like I should be doing radio,
from what I've been told. The defining three traits according to my
friends are my intelligence, my wit, and my kindness. I question

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Good lord, that's an open ended question. I debate just about
everything in my mind with myself. I love trying to puzzle out the
truth of things, whatever they may be. Forcing yourself to try to
constantly see new sides to problems is really rewarding.
Or I might be remembering a recipe I saw a year ago, and wondering
why I never made it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with friends. Usually playing some type of card/board
game, and drinking an irresponsible amount of whiskey. Possibly
going on some random adventure in the city.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm loyal and empathetic to my own detriment.
I'm also an absolutely terrible speller. Four years of AP English
and I can never remember how to spell anything. I can't even
remember the spellings of things later in the day after looking it
up. If auto-correct and Google didn't exist, my writing would have
the spelling mistakes of a fifth grader.
