My self-summary
I appreciate simplicity and honesty, mixed with elaborate story-telling and aching belly laughs. I have wonderful people in my life whom I am certain I will know through to old age. There are choices, fears, obstacles, adventures that sometimes distract me from remembering what matters most to me. Which is a pretty common theme in life, as can be found in books, movies, music, the arts etc. And maybe we'll connect on some of those.
What I’m doing with my life
Living it as true to myself as I can. Which means what, exactly...
...I've learned I prefer quiet gatherings more often than large parties. I get great joy from sharing seriously goofy moments with people. In those moments, people are open and not self-conscious. I've lived in Brooklyn for 12 years. The things I love about this city are: neighborhood coffee shops with great aesthetic and energy where exchanges with strangers can happen seamlessly; the kind and smiley man who runs the 24 hr. vegetable store/bodega; nodding hello on the street to the owners of businesses I support; the diversity of languages I hear daily; the bus driver that welcomes my hello when I step on and my thank you when I step off; the history and architecture on every corner.

I'm practicing presence, I'm thinking up creative projects to execute, I'm dreaming up quick trips out of New York that make a zipcar membership worthwhile, I enjoy my bicycle rides. I like sleeping in.
I’m really good at
Creating a space.

The six things I could never do without
My glasses, pens and paper, toothpaste, laughter, and those really good songs that just make everything amazing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think about the best way to relax on the weekend. I think about fabric combinations and color schemes that would go well together, a fun hobby of envisioning rooms. Which leads to thinking about taking some courses in interior design, maybe shift work gears in that direction.
On a typical Friday night I am
I pretty much do whatever to suit whatever mood I'm in.
You should message me if
You appreciate quick wit and laughter, and have some you can't help but add to the world. You have the capacity to love. You enjoy both social and solo events. You have a sense of your own sex appeal. You looked at my profile and thought, "I want to go bowling with her."
