Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've been in NYC for 8 years, still loving it in a pretty serious
way. Sure, I've had the fantasy of renting an entire house for half
the price of my fancy shoe-box and surrounding myself in something
greener, but I still really appreciate how awesome and unique this
place is and can't really see myself leaving any time soon.
After all this time in the city I still feel pretty mellow, calm
and altogether nice, although I do have the desire to physically
push down every single person who stops and answers their phone in
the middle of the subway steps... that being said I consider myself
to be a very open-minded and empathetic person who has an overall
positive view of the world despite a solid streak of good humored
I'm an independent lady who appreciates a goofy sense of humor as
much as an intellectual conversation. As a creative and ambitious
person, I love meeting others who are driven by passion and
curiosity, and genuine folks who follow their own interests. NYC is
SO good for that...
Also, I'm a proud feminist and lean pretty far left- I'm pretty
diplomatic and get along with most people, but any hardcore
right-wingers should probably just leave now...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I curate exhibitions and co-run an artspace in Brooklyn and work at
a nonprofit organization in the city. Then there are always
outside/freelance projects, but I won't bore the internet with
those until they happen and need press, ha...I work hard and often
but am happy to say that I'm learning how to balance my time
I enjoy checking out art galleries/museums in the cities and seeing
live music as often as possible. I grew up on the beach and really
like to be outdoors, always looking for ways to do that in and
outside of the city. I need to get upstate more! I practice yoga
regularly (or semi-regularly, I try) and like hiking, tennis,
spending time on the water, traveling, practicing new recipes, and
happy hour- ok, regular drinking hour is good too.
If there is an animal in site I will approach it and do everything
I can to make it love me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making lists (to-do, grocery, you name it...)
Finding my way around new places
Memorization (short term anyway)
Karaoke (not really but god I love it)
Talking to strangers
Making a mean spinach-artichoke dip
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hair is pretty curly & can be BIG in the summer. I'm not
super tall but have been have been told that I have nice legs (ick
that feels weird to write but I'm going to push through it and keep
writing). I give a good hand shake and am pretty sweet at heart but
also sarcastic a lot of the time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I usually have one or two going at the same time so this is
tricky but I always like David Sedaris, Jeffrey Eugenides, Vladimir
Nabakov, Junot Diaz, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Phillip K. Dick.
And Harry Potter of course...
TV: The Daily Show, Colbert Report, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad,
Arrested Development, Parks & Rec. I don't like reality TV but
I have to admit I'm a total sucker for some of those kids on The
Music: Blues, 90's grunge & lady rockers will always have a
special place in my heart but I like a lot of different stuff, not
so much pop on the top 40 these days though.
Food: Good Mexican food is my happy place, but I like almost
everything. Especially blueberry pancakes, sushi, and oysters with
a blood mary.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My cats...they are awesome, sorry haters
Those special people in my life
Toothbrush (because everything is better with clean teeth)
I know that's six, but I have to add cheese...cheese is really
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My next trip. New artists/projects and how to fund them. Cool stuff
to do in NYC this weekend and new recipes to try out. How fall (no
matter how short it is) is the best season.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably checking out an art opening or some live music, then
hitting up a low-key bar for dinner & more than one drink with
friends. Or in my apartment with a bottle of wine and a movie,
depends on how little sleep I've had that week...
* As of late my I'm enjoying more and more Fridays at home. Still
like to go out but I'd prefer to do that during the week or on
Saturday at the right bar
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not only do talk to my cats, I also sing to them. I feel this does
not make me a crazy cat lady (yet) because I would be singing
anyway, it's just more fun to have them around to listen.
