My self-summary
I am a middle child. I'm a feminist and left of left. From New York City, originally. My profession is very important to me - but so is just relaxing and enjoying life.

I'm equal parts Brooklyn and Backpacking in the wilderness.

Things that put me into a good mood are: Art. Hiking. Running. Fall weather. Coffee-shops. Used book stores. Painting. Rainy days. Hammocks. Lakes. Trains. Snowshoeing and Biking.

Overall, I'm a kind person, passionate, invested in learning and incredibly down to earth.

Parlor trick: I can light a fire with a single match. (I was a girl scout)
What I’m doing with my life
Busy being an ambitious young woman.

Outside of work, I try to find ways to relish mornings and afternoons by creating impromptu dance parties, brewing tea, pickling vegetables, watching movies (a serious favorite of mine), running, rowing, taking painting classes and enjoying beer, wine, and whiskey.
I’m really good at
Whistling and telling a story, but not at the same time.
The first things people usually notice about me
Blue eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anna Karenina. Joan Didion. Virginia Woolf. The Death and Life of Great American Cities. Simone de Beauvoir. George Orwell.

Movies: Anything Woody Allen, "The Way We Were," "Cool Hand Luke," "Once," "Kramer v. Kramer," "Adam's Rib" and Brat Pack movies.

Favorites foods include: spinach, avocados, mushrooms, cheese, fresh bread, sushi, beet soup, sauerkraut, quiche, tiramisu, and flan.
Six things I could never do without
running shoes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to make the world a little better. What I'm going to write next. Places I want to travel. Economies of Power. Corruption. Gender. Stories I need to tell. My career. Why we have laws. How to live a more balanced life. The different interests in liberty and equality.
On a typical Friday night I am
trying to unwind. there is usually a beer involved in that.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I could never do a cartwheel. Still not that coordinated - but quite flexible.
You should message me if
I'm a warm person. I'm attracted to the ones that are fiercely intelligent, passionate, and yet are salt of the earth.

But most of all I like people - who have heart. If you are not a douche, you can laugh at yourself, and you like a strong intelligent women I invite correspondence.
