I am a petite, gregarious social worker who likes dive bars, eating
and cooking all types of food and reading anything I can get my
hands on (or that pops up in my Twitter feed). I love running and
animals (though in a "cute videos on YouTube" way, not a PETA way).
What I’m doing with my life
I work for a housing/legal services organization, where I help
individual low-income tenants and work on larger affordable housing
issues in the city. I managed to make it sound dull when it is
anything but--I love it!
I’m really good at
writing, trivia (all of my time watching VH1 countdown shows is
good for something!) tap dancing, trying to work wonky graduate
school terms into casual conversation, spotting famous people (most
recent spotting--Taryn Manning, aka "Pennsatucky" from "Orange is
the New Black").
The first things people usually notice about me

Food: I can't think of a type of food I really can't stand, but I
am always up for Thai, Middle Eastern and Mexican. And cheese. I
love all kinds of cheese.
The six things I could never do without
1) My family
2) My friends
4) The salad bar at West Side Market
6) Comedy (movies, TV, stand up)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I could actually make a living as a writer
On a typical Friday night I am
Either hanging out with friends at a local bar, going somewhere new
in the city or watching something on Netflix.
You should message me if
You are into a girl who watches "Jeopardy" and is not afraid to
admit it, and likes to talk about serious literature and "Animal
House" in the same breath.
