My self-summary
I love fun. That said, I work too hard and occasionally need a reminder to have some.

Born and raised in east Queens. New York is like a big sister to me; I admire her, but sometimes I get sick of her and wish she'd just shut up. I love discovering new places near and far. I'm a compulsive listmaker who's actually pretty great at living in the now.

No one can get enough of my dance moves. Take me to a block party and I will make friends.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a copywriter at an ad agency. On my own time, I write edgy short fiction about insufferable people. I love photography, thrifting, theater, comedy, aerobic yoga, knitting, cooking, baking, hiking, ice skating, travel and Duolingo.
I’m really good at
Close reading, planning vacations
The first things people usually notice about me
Loose curls, amicable realness

The six things I could never do without
Apart from physiological needs and human relationships:

1) My laptop, Holly
2) My iPhone, Thom
3) My financial independence
4) My free time
5) My glasses
6) My domain name
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How could I have saved Amy Winehouse?
Will they notice if I check my phone?
What's something I have not yet done — and can I do it today?
Am I subverting a trope or just becoming one?
Do I need real shoes for this?
On a typical Friday night I am
going somewhere new with old friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I want it to work.
