Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a doctoral student living in NYC. I am the owner of one
fabulous French Bulldog and I love to bake. When I am not studying
or grading, I am walking my dog, on a run, having drinks with
friends, and exploring the city. My two favorite NYC places are the
Highline and Alphabet City.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am ABD and completing my doctorate. I work as an adjunct
professor/teaching assistant/writing consultant for Master's
students who are studying religion and theology. My dream is to be
the type of professor who inspires people to be their absolute best
selves in the world.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
hosting people in my tiny apartment, baking vegan desserts that
cause even the pickiest of carnivores to salivate (my latest feat
is the strawberry rosé cupcake), navigating maps and traveling in
foreign countries, and having pleasant conversation with strangers.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books: Presently, only nerdy stuff related to my dissertation.
Zanker, Panofsky, Elsner...anything regarding Roman Art and visual
exegesis. I read James and the Giant Peach once a year and try to
read a guilty pleasure, non-academic book before bed (currently
rereading the Harry Potter series)!
Movies: 90s RomComs, baby. Anything but horror films as I still
sometimes take a flying leap into my bed at night for fear of the
proverbial alligator under the bed!
TV Shows: Scandal, Last Comic Standing, OITNB, The Goodwife, SATC,
Grey's Anatomy (yes, still!), CSI: SVU, Downton Abbey, Breaking
Bad, Arrested Development.
Food: I can and will eat anywhere, but I am a vegan (food
allergies, but seriously, I'm not a picky person). I can be around
others who eat meat, and I do not let my eating restrictions get in
the way of my social life.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family and friends
My snuggly dog
Spirituality/ethics/connecting with others who think about these

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how to inhabit a lifestyle of faith, hope, and love. I am aware of
the many privileges I have been given in this life, and I want to
be a gracious, humble human being who fights for the full
personhood and privileges of others. I love LGBTQ people and think
they should marry/be ordained/have full rights. I think women
should be ministers and do whatever they want with their lives. I
believe that racism is alive and well in the world, and I want
people of color to live an existence free from hegemony and
paternalism. My faith is important to me, but I am not a fanatic. I
love interfaith dialogue and entertaining/embracing ideas that are
different from my own—I am a true Gemini in these respects!
I also spend a lot of time thinking about the people I love and
trying to be a thoughtful, attentive friend. I love baking special
treats for people, and I have an insane greeting card organizer. I
call my Mom throughout the week. I have two nieces and four
nephews, who think I am an international superstar (they live
across the country) and their love melts my heart.
On a typical Friday night I am

you think we might have common interests and something to chat
about over casual drinks or coffee. I prefer face-to-face
encounters as texts/messages do not gauge chemistry, so do not be
offended when I shy away from giving out my number at first--not a
huge phone person. Thanks for reading my profile!
