My self-summary
I grew up in Oak Park, and now I live in Chicago. I'm always interested in finding out how other people's lives are different from my own. I love reading, and I'm also a big fan of film and art. I care a lot about the people in my life and about social issues. I like bringing groups of people together.
What I’m doing with my life
I work a 9-5 at an advertising agency and I recently finished my masters in Library and Information Science. I'm currently in full-on job search mode. I'm interested in the way that old media and new media are colliding, and I want to be involved in shaping how that turns out. Or maybe I just want to find a good place to read a book.
