Born and raised in CT, I'm an only child though I'm told that
personality-wise I'm anything but. I've been in Manhattan nearly 10
years... which I think makes me a legit New Yorker. No intentions
of leaving anytime soon as everything I love is all right here.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in marketing and promotions for a national women's magazine
and kind of love my job. But work/ life balance is huge for me so I
offset time at work with time spent plotting my next travel
adventures. Just back from Turkey (incredible), so am starting to
dream up the next.
I’m really good at
Seeing the big picture
Making people feel comfortable
Finding humor and joy even when things get stressful
The first things people usually notice about me
People compliment my style. But I work at a magazine so have to put
the best foot forward. I'm also super warm and friendly and can
strike up a conversation with anyone.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food - I am obsessed. My college friends dubbed me 'the tank'

corner bistro and in general anywhere with really legit pasta. Also
love a good lobster roll and am always up for brunch.
Books - Love anything I can't put down. When I'm stressed or sad, a
good book is typically my foolproof fix. Recent favorites include
Let The Great World Spin and Shantaram.
TV - I don't watch that much but am into Mad Men and recently got
The six things I could never do without
Friends and family - Obviously. Tea in the morning. Red wine.
Hitting the gym. Clean sheets. Night showers.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I'm going to be in 5 years. Where I'm going to travel next.
When I'm going to meet you.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hosting a dinner party, grabbing drinks with friends, winding down
after a long week, or heading up to CT to see the family.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I usually don't talk this much about myself. So tell me about
You should message me if
You're ambitious, serious, but silly when the time is right. Love
your friends and family and take care of yourself.
