My self-summary
Ready, steady go! I'm a professional, intellectual, hysterically-funny woman. On OkC I'm looking for smart people who are not bogged down by social conventions. Not sure where my future is taking me and am totally fine with that!
What I’m doing with my life
Solving problems (and creating them as well). I am a lawyer!

When I'm not lawyering, I enjoy cycling, gardening, chess, and getting drinks with friends while watching futbol (i.e. soccer).

I love to travel and learn about different cultures and ways of life.

Loving the ocean, hating the beach.
I’m really good at
Cooking, arguing, filing briefs, sewing, wandering, walking, biking, riding the EL!
The first things people usually notice about me
People probably notice my accent as my parents are from Cape Verde, but I spent my first years of life living in Argentina before moving to the US when I was 10.

So, I have a crazy accent that nobody can pin down!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Gender Trouble, Walden, The Tin Drum, Strunk and White, Ellison, Borges, Cortazar, Morrison, Isabel Allende, Saramago, Fanon

Films: Weekend, Guenny Pires, Van Peebles

TV: I don't watch much TV, but I love Portlandia, South Park, cooking shows, Al-Jazeera, watching soccer (Barcelona!) and C-Span!

Music: Cesaria Evora!, Al Green, John Coltrane, King Sunny Ade, Astor Piazzola, Arcade Fire, Sleater Kinney, Sammy Davis, Jr. etc...!

Food: I love cooking Indian and Mexican. Love going out for Ethiopian, Italian, and French. I will try anything and have been interested in learning more about entomophagy!
The six things I could never do without
Water, my bike, the Art Institute, dal, WestLaw, running shoes, gin
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the law, inequity, democracy, summer!
On a typical Friday night I am
Working, eating out, working out, eating at work, and/or having a nice gin-based cocktail!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It's a secret!
You should message me if
You can spell and are not a fool or a jerk!
