My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Bookworm, eater, cook, haunter of Greenmarkets, frequenter of Murray's, cocktail maker and drinker. Lover of culture, both high and pop. Fiercely loyal and incredibly game friend. Manhattanite of 13 years who recently made the jump to Brooklyn.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Consuming as much culture as I can, cooking up a storm, reading voraciously, spending as much of the summer either outdoors or in movie theaters as possible, wandering the city, and traveling whenever the opportunity arises.

I work in technology (user research, strategy, and product management). Basically, I ask questions, tell stories, and solve problems. I love it.

Currently reading: Andrew Ervin's Burning Down George Orwell's House.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I make a nearly perfect gougère (there's always room for improvement), a killer tomato and avocado salad, and my chocolate cake is legendary in certain circles. My sticky toffee pudding is legendary in all circles. I cook up a lobster boil every summer, so if you're looking for a woman who can select, kill, and steam a dozen lobsters to perfection, I'm your gal.

I'm a superlative traveler - I'll go anywhere, anytime, and I fall asleep immediately upon boarding the plane. I can make conversation with pretty much anyone, but it takes a particular sort of person to make me want to keep listening.

I believe strongly in the value of interborough travel. Have MetroCard, will subway.

People tend to mention my laugh (it's loud) or my hair (it's dark and sometimes curly, sometimes not).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Coffee, and plenty of it.
New York's theater scene.
Cheese.
Something good to read.
Bourbon or rye.
Sunglasses.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I'm going to read next.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Deciding which cocktail to order/make. Spoiler alert: it's usually a Manhattan, but I've gotten a taste for the Boulevardier of late.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I had a childhood crush on Matt Lauer.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're curious about the world. You like to read books or see movies or pieces of theater and then talk about them. You're amazing, think I might be, or some combination of the two.

You're funny as hell and know how to go in for the kiss.
