loving and caring once you get through it. I tend to like
non-traditional people - crazy, weird, and quirky. People who have
ideas that amuse and fascinate me.
Last summer, I drove cross country and back with my pit-bull,
Melvin. It was quite an epic journey. The trip reminded me how good
it feels to be out in nature. I'm beginning to wonder if I'm really
a city person. Now that the winter is over, I want to do lots of
hiking and camping
I love the Moth and This American Life and I want to make my own
shows like that, but I get overwhelmed about where to start. I like
talking to old people and hearing about how things used to be. I
would time travel if I could.
I was raised Jewish and feel a connection to others who were also.
But I am not religious or practicing.
I also enjoy food. Food is good.

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am managing a museum education program that is exclusively
working with Philly public schools. It's fun!
I'm being a great dog mom.
I'm getting obsessed with projects in my house and garden. I want
to replace all the ugly home depot doors in my house with salvaged
doors, but sizing has proven to be a challenge. I haven't given up,
I'm making quilts (inspired by Gees Bend)
I often go antiquing on Sunday mornings.
