Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
EDIT: This profile is a little old because I just reactivated, and
I'll add some newer pics (I think I pretty much look the same?),
but the gist of it remains the same. I mean, obviously I've
grown--I have a newfound obsession with Sons of Anarchy, and my
hair is longer!
That said, I am witty, self-aware, and generally a pretty relaxed
person. I grew up in Texas, Japan, and Colorado--quite an
interesting mash-up. I was exposed to a ton of vastly different
cultures growing up, which not only sparked my travel bug but I
think shaped me into an accepting and curious person.
I'm back in Colorado after a 7-year stint in Miami. I miss the
ocean, but thank God. I mean, really.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm still deciding what I want to be when I grow up (this does not
mean I'm lacking in goals or direction). Here's what I can tell
--I'm a nanny, and I love it (but it's certainly not a forever
--I went to college in Miami where I studied film and creative
writing, and moved back to Colorado a little over a year ago.
--I'm hoping to get my master's in counseling and become a child
and/or equine therapist.
--I'm currently taking a workshop and training to become an
advocate for survivors of childhood sexual abuse, trauma, and

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

pretending I'm a good painter/"artist"
People tend to spill their life stories to me, so I guess that
means I'm good at being...empathetic, maybe?

This is like asking me to pick a favorite child, so I'm just going
to put a few recent favorites...
Books: Cutting for Stone, The Art of Racing in the Rain, Back to
Blood (Tom Wolfe is a genius and one of the most astute
sociologists of our time)
Movies: Just accidentally-on-purpose bought Moonrise Kingdom from
Shows: Not new, but Arrested Development may be the most famazing
show ever and I am beyond excited for its return. Also love
Community, Lost, Always Sunny, Parks & Rec, American Horror
Story, The Daily Show, The Colbert Show, Portlandia
Music: Here's my cliche response: I believe almost any genre has
the possibility of producing "good" music--except maybe polka, I
don't like polka. That said, a few Pandora stations I've been
listening to a lot recently are Alabama Shakes, Metric, Beatles,
Led Zeppelin, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Sublime, CCR, Muse (ok fine
the last are forever favorites)
Food: All of it except tomatoes. I HATE tomatoes (but I wish I
didn't, it's super inconvenient)
Other: TED talks, NPR, Book of Mormon* (The musical. Definitely not

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Beboppin' around town, hitting some divey bars, sleeping, booking,
netflixing, resting up for an adventure. Shenanigans.
