My self-summary
I just returned from five months of traveling South America, and I'm looking to meet some new people.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in education nonprofits, though having just returned to the US, I'm still looking for my next position. I sing with the Symphony and explore Houston's cuisine, art, and offbeat museums.
I’m really good at
-telling stories
-retrieving things from the top shelf
-spelling and grammar
-keeping things lively on the dance floor
-trivia games
-rescuing children from non-emergency situations, ex. hunger, untied shoelaces
-making lists
The first things people usually notice about me
My height.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: yes please! Mary Roach, Gregory Maguire and Colum McCann are some favorites.

TV: I haven't been watching much TV since I've been out of the country, but I'm excited for Broad City and Game of Thrones to come back.

Movies: I've got some catching up to do. I did see the new Star Wars movie... seemed basically the same as the original.

Music: For a musician, I'm not very picky. I like most things in moderation, but I'll binge on Chet Baker Sings. And after three hours of rehearsing Handel oratorios, I like to put the windows down and blast Girl Talk.

Podcasts: I'm a raving fan of Lexicon Valley, RadioLab and On The Media, among others. I don't get the excitement over Serial.

Food: I enjoy a good food adventure like the goat brains masala at Indika, but I can get down with a bowl of queso too.
Six things I could never do without
Obviously I could do without any of the below if I were, for example, thrown in a Turkish prison. A more apt lead might be, "six things that make life more awesome are..."

-watersports, particularly swimming and boating
-the unfettered connectivity of our modern age
I spend a lot of time thinking about
education, opportunity, and the growing income gap that is undermining the American Dream. Happy travel memories, and how much longer 'til I can take off again for the wild blue yonder. Facebook addiction, whether it's a real problem, and whether it's *my* real problem. Gratitude, because I've heard it will make me happier. Pro-Houston PR. And sentence fragments.
On a typical Friday night I am
relaxing: a low-key happy hour, a run or swim, an evening of entertaining baby nephews followed by bourbon time with their mom. Saturdays are for adventures, cocktails, dancing. And Sundays are for naps, errands, rehearsals and barbeques.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The first boy who kissed me was named Clint, and I was so surprised, I bit him. In my defense, it truly came out of nowhere. Who tries to make out during Stigmata?
You should message me if
you are looking for smart, funny, opinionated, tall, cybernetic enhancements, tasteful sideboob... note to self, must stop looking at Cards Against Humanity deck for OKC profile ideas.
