Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've lived in Boston, Berlin, and London, and I've traveled from
Munich to Mallorca, from Amsterdam to Aqaba, but I'm a California
girl through and through. I moved to Atlanta a year ago to start a
PhD program in Classical art history at Emory and am loving it here
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m absolutely crazy about the ancient Mediterranean. From working
on exhibitions about Pompeii and polychrome sculpture to
researching millennia-old gems in museums across the country, I
want to educate others about the treasures of Classical
civilizations. I am really thrilled to be getting my doctorate and
dream of becoming a curator after I'm done.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Playing tour guide in art museums.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
...is that I'm very put-together. That, and my insanely curly hair!

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My chef's knife
A really good cappuccino
My black stilettos
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What to cook next! I own well over twenty cookbooks and cooking is
one of my biggest passions outside the classroom. Currently cooking
my way through Yotam Ottolenghi's "Plenty More," a cookbook from
one of my favorite spots in London.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Honestly? I don't have a real "Friday night routine." But I do
prefer low-key nights, like staying in with a good book or having
friends over to share a bottle of wine (preferably white!), over
going out for a raucous time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I secretly want to be Martha Stewart. Seriously. From piping
chocolate ganache on a cappuccino-fudge cheesecake to hand-knitting
a sweater, I think I could give her a run for her money.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You don’t have to love Almodóvar films, be an Italophile, or have
kickass culinary competence to write me. It would help if you loved
the Giants, but I’d overlook allegiance to even the Dodgers (well,
maybe) if you have a vibrant passion to which you bring brimming
enthusiasm in what you do or how you live.
If you want to share with me what makes you tick and you are
curious about the world, message me!
PLEASE don't send me one-liners asking me how my Monday is going,
simply saying "hey," or introducing yourself by name-- I really
want to get to know you instead of getting a terse message. And it
shows me you actually care enough to read to the bottom.
