Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Marathoner, artist, teacher, adventurer, and foodie.
Currently, I work as an art teacher at a public middle school.
After working for a few years in marketing, I embarked on a scary
(but worthwhile) career change to art education. I am passionate
about working with kids and I think art is a way for us to make
sense of ourselves and our experiences in the world. I especially
love painting, drawing, and ceramics.
To offset the inevitable stresses of teaching, I love being active.
I'm usually training for some kind of race (usually a marathon or a
half marathon), but I also love yoga, dancing, skiing, and
I've spent my adult life alternating between NYC and DC. I grew up
outside of NYC, so I consider this place to be home. Urban life
really suits me, but I love spending time in nature.
Some other things that I love... farmer's markets, cooking,
traveling to new places (near or far), playing boggle, getting lost
in bookstores, people watching, joe's coffee, spotify, museums, and
marcel the shell.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
learning and teaching, making art, building ikea furniture,
navigating, and making people laugh (at least those who get my
quirky sense of humor).

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
there is no typical friday night for me. i'm usually pretty
exhausted by the end of the week, so it is likely something
low-key. i'm more apt to be out and about on a saturday night.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm looking for someone who is kind, self-aware, passionate about
something, and active. You know when to be serious and responsible,
but you also know how to be light-hearted, spontaneous, and maybe
even a bit goofy. Bonus points if you can make me laugh.
