What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently a PhD student and associate instructor at I.U. Before I moved to Bloomington I was the Volunteer Coordinator and Small Shipments Manager at a small Non-profit organization in KY. The organization I used to work for delivers approx 250,000 textbooks and library books every year to over 70 different countries to promote global literacy and reduce poverty through educational development. I have also worked as a cinema projectionist, caterer (food prep), barista, line-worker at a peanut butter factory, and horse trainer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking: I love to cook and experiment with new recipes. I am a bit of foodie and would like to have been a chef in another life.

Discussing literature, cinema, and education: Partially because its my job, but also because I think it helps me understand the world and my place in it a little bit better.

Tennis: If you are looking for a frequent tennis partner, I am always looking to play.

Thinking of unusual things to do: I get tired of routine, so I have learned to appreciate the small variations that can blossom into adventures.

Some of my guilty cinema pleasures include old-school James Bond films, Garden State, Mannequin, Two Weeks Notice, early Kevin Smith films, (I appreciate what many consider to be "low" culture films that range from the unbearable to the disgustingly popular)
