My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Adventurous, playful, sometimes funny, and often ebullient, I'm a fan of food, laughter, reading, writing, biking, the outdoors, photography, ping pong, and random acts of kindness.

I've done a lot of traveling, and I look forward to more. Though good company is more important to me than location, some of my favorite spots include Nepal, Iceland, Berlin, Barcelona, Provence, and the Adirondacks.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm writing a book, finishing an MFA in nonfiction at Columbia, and teaching creative writing to high school students. I love to make my students laugh and to see their stories unfold; I also love to lose myself in my own writing.

People's curious ways
Food
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is no typical Friday night, but I like to get dinner with a friend or two, and in the warmer months, I may be en route to a trip in the great outdoors.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This is certainly not private, but there's no option for this in OkCupid's pull-down menu: Jewish by birth, I'm a non-practicing, secular Jew. I grew up with a Lutheran father and Jewish mother. As for religion, I'd say I'm agnostic.

Also, my mother died four years ago.
