Storyteller. Not great at commas. I probably get too excited about how interconnected everything is and the inextricable power of narratives.
I'm fairly low-key. I love a good book, good people, a good beer. I'm not a dramatic person, but I love to be surprised. I also really like kind, genuinely nice people who give a shit about the world. Emphasis on that last part.
Let's go to the zoo.
I love Harry Potter! And honestly, I'll read just about anything.
I'm also a big movie fan, although growing up with intermittent cable means I've missed a lot of the classics. Juno, Walk the Line, Silver Linings Playbook, Knocked Up, Pride and Prejudice, Twister, Spy Game (weirdly my favorite movie of all time. Spys!), Across the Universe, Children of Men.
Watch all the TV and only feel slightly guilty about it.
This American Life, 99% Invisible, Radiolab. J-School has allowed me to Q&A with both Ira Glass and Robert Krulwich. Life is good.
Like all good things it changes over time, but right now I'm digging The Gaslight Anthem, Metric, Bad Books, Manchester Orchestra, Andrew Bird, Thursday, The Head and The Heart, Dr Dog.
For better of worse I love food. All of it; it's amazing. Except sardines, no sardines.
Also, if you have your life all wrapped up in a nice little package that's lovely, good for you! I...don't. And at this point in my life I don't want it all wrapped up. If you're looking for 100 percent together I'm not your girl. If you're open to being around while I get it together I'd love to have you.
Also I could just use a couple of new friends, so if you're looking for one of those too feel free!
