My self-summary
One time, I carried a lobster we caught off Boston's south shore from the beach back to our house up the hill. I think it was the longest I'd ever held my breath.

Among many things, I am a:
community runner, avid public radio listener, fiercely loyal friend
dabbling artist, loud car-singer, experimental cook, happier eater
occasional museum-goer, always dancer, always live music lover
sometimes-gypsy-soul
committed tea drinker, amateur gardener, aspiring beekeeper

I expect to live a life that lets me add new things to that list (book writer? around-the-world-traveler? yoga teacher?), and to finding a partner with whom to share that life.

"tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"
What I’m doing with my life
running. watching the sun rise. exploring. working in food and agriculture.
I’m really good at
making hummus
spontaneous dance parties
making popcorn
eating with friends
apartment crawls
porch sitting
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

almost all the fruits and vegetables; avocados; brussels sprouts; chocolate cake; spaghetti squash; home cooked meals with loved ones are the best
The six things I could never do without
community (not the show, although it is also awesome)
running shoes
Ball jars
public radio
hot sauce
storypeople

seriously, though: the outdoors.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
farmers, farms, & food. how to make the food system better. whether I could cut it as a farmer.
where the best places are to see sunrises and sunsets.
building community.
running. whether to sign up for a race in yellowstone or somewhere else rural and beautiful. how I need to stretch more.
where i could have a little farm - or at least a big garden - with bees. maybe chickens and a goat?
You should message me if
you have a great popcorn topping recipe;

you're a bee-whisperer;

you would go square dancing with me;

you would wake up early and find some place amazing to watch the sunrise;

if none of these apply, go ahead and send a note anyway :)
