I am workaholic and a fun junkie---meticulous and impulsive in equal measure---a super type A plan-maker and go with the flow wave rider. I wake up every day just to watch the sun rise and I often fall asleep in all my clothes. I am a gregarious and energetic introvert---my ambition generally presents in the form of helping others realize their potential. I will look for any excuse to wear a costume or dance.
I'm a freelance branding and launch specialist, which means I marry creative vision and logistics to make things go. Usually those things are restaurants, sometimes creative start-ups.
What I really want to do is just grow heirloom tomatoes and get weird out in the country.
I have an Interdisciplinary degree in Art History, Anthropology and Religious Studies, with an emphasis in South Asia---a course of study that well prepared me to be a bartender for most of my twenties.
I dig words, smells, foods, flowers, candor, Greek and Spanish things, old houses, rock n roll, thunderstorms, surf movies, dance (any kind, any where, all the time), art deco design, making things with my hands, witty banter, serious debate, intense reflection and dick jokes. I really appreciate vulgarity, yet I am super proud of my polite, Southern upbringing. I do have a faint accent that is particularly noticeable after I get off of the phone with my mother or have a few glasses of rosé. If I'm drinking rosé with my mother---forget about it.
A friend once described me as someone with the tenacity to chew my way out of a bear trap, but the first thing you will probably notice about me is my rack.
People ask me about my ethnicity a lot. I don't know much about my heritage, but whoever my people are, they can really pop, lock and drop it.
