I'm 26, born and raised in Massachusetts and I love to laugh and
explore new things.
I'm completely obsessed with the Spanish language and in the future
I see myself traveling/potentially living abroad in South America
or Spain, but for now I love my life in Boston.
I love performing arts (acting, singing and dancing), I love
cooking health conscious yet flavorful meals, I love being active
and outdoors (soccer, kayaking, frisbee), and I'm very passionate
about social justice. I could go on for days discussing ethics and
What I’m doing with my life
I currently work at a community development non-profit in Jamaica
Plain. I supervise a team of youth who create theater activities
based on children's literature for elementary aged kids, in order
to spark their interest in reading and improve their literacy
skills. It's pretty awesome.
I'm also involved in a few nonprofit boards. One is a nonprofit
networking board and the other is a community theater board. If you
find either of these things interesting, we should talk :-)
I’m really good at
being liberal, over-thinking things, and doing various accents in a
short span of time
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm really peppy
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: I like almost everything, but some favorites (across genres)
include Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson, Alicia Keys, Janet Jackson,
Best Coast, Veronica Falls, and Dum Dum Girls.
Movies: Mean Girls, When Harry Met Sally, Save the Last Dance,
Chicago, Hairspray, Hercules (Disney), Beaches, Love Actually, The

Books: The World According to Garp, The Color Purple, Tuesdays with
Morrie, 1984, Dracula. I generally read non-fiction (tho I realize
all my listed favorites are fiction...)
The six things I could never do without
Friends/family, my ipod, laughter, a planner/organizer, chocolate
and my car
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Current events and politics. I'm always thinking about how I, and
we as a society, can do better
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends at parties or clubs or hanging out with my
roommates watching a movie/drinking wine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still use kid's toothpaste because I don't like mint...

message me, so please do so if you would like to!
