I'm unapologetically enthusiastic and able to add hyperbole to any sentence. I'm a little bit of a workaholic (see below). The Olympics are my favorite time of year. I keep my apartment stocked with Moscow Mule ingredients (you can get ginger beer on Amazon).
I like trying out the best of DC, traveling whenever possible (just for back from 2 weeks in Thailand), spinning & yoga, and would rather be at the beach than just about anywhere else. I bought a bike but truth be told I'm a little scared to ride it in the city.
I grew up in New York (go Mets!!), went south to undergrad in New Orleans (yes, was there for Katrina), and much to my surprise I've been in DC for almost 6 years. I think I might like it here?
I'm looking for someone who's a good person -- not too tough I'd think.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a Creative Director at a small digital marketing firm working with non-profits, political orgs, etc. (sounds fancier than it probably is). Just trying to find a way to make my little corner of the world a little better, a little brighter.
I lead a lot of brainstorming sessions, come up with cool ideas, and write things. AND they pay me.
I’m really good at
Puns and parentheticals. Wii dancing. Watching tennis (and sometimes playing). Interrupting you (I'm working on it). Marathon Netflix viewing. Ice breakers.
The first things people usually notice about me
Someone once told me I have eyes like a cat. You can do with that what you want. Also, my Kelly Kapowski-like hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Book: Lots of fiction and anything about World War II (weird?). Some favorites include: Dave Eggers, Jennifer Egan, and I am proud to controversially state my love of Franzen's Freedom -- it was excellent. Also, Harry Potter. Also, the Art of Fielding -- go read it.
Movies: Apollo 13 (seriously, it's a classic), Dead Poet's Society, Miracle, Home Alone, period movies with Kira Knightly, Indiana Jones.
TV: Friday Night Lights (Texas forever), The West Wing, The Wire, Parks & Rec, Mad Men, Happy Endings, Arrested Development, The Wonder Years, and so many more
Music: I once met Paul McCartney so I am forever first a Beatles fan. Elton John knows my heart. Hall & Oates for karaoke. I'm certain that Jay-Z and I would be great friends (you can ask me more about this theory but that pretty much is the whole thing). Not ashamed to say that Guster is probably my all time favorite brand cause I'm nostalgic like that.
The six things I could never do without
The Olympics (don't make me pick)
Coach Eric Taylor
Pictures of Joe Biden eating ice cream
Big windows that open
And throwing in socks as a 7th
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why people could possibly have an issue with Oxford commas. And life on other planets. And what I'd haunt if I was a ghost.
On a typical Friday night I am
enthusiastically enjoying whatever it is I am doing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think 99% of what Aaron Sorkin writes is perfect.
You should message me if
If you want to hear my Paul McCartney story. Or if you read this far.
