Phoenix native and love it but still have a spot for Tucson after living there for five years, though I don't think I could give up on some Phoenix luxuries like streetlights or sidewalks anymore.
I have a bachelors from UofA in History and a masters from ASU in Public Administration. After being in school for eight years I am pretty happy that I no longer have to do homework. Urban planning, city development, and community building in general is what I'm really into.
What I’m doing with my life
Used to do public affairs, currently working as a consultant in the public sector.
I’m really good at
I really enjoy making new friends and talking about anything. My

The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my first name.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A brief, misguided stint in film school left me loving classic foreign films and really dig french new wave like Jean-Luc Goddard or classic Federico Fellini films (Pierrot Le Fou, Masculin Feminin, La Dolce Vita especially).
I read a lot on topics like history, politics, and economics, with favorite authors being Rick Perlstein, Antony Beevor, Paul Krugman and Eric Foner. For fiction nothing beats mediocre detective novels. If it can be bought in an airport bookstore I want it.
I am pretty open to all types of music, but really enjoy jazz like Dave Brubeck and indie music like Brazilian Girls, Cansei de Ser Sexy, Eleanor Friedberger, or Broadcast.
The six things I could never do without
1. my kindle
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics, a lot of the time. Animated GIFs. Thinking of something
absurd and then seeing how much people post about it on tumblr.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out drinking with friends or trying to dance.
You should message me if
You want to grab a drink or hang out. I'm mostly a creature of
downtown, so if you like that part of town message me. Or if you
want to talk about what (seriously) is the deal with the Westward
