My self-summary
Journalist and life enthusiast.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an editor at a local news website, covering everything from politics to plays. I also help nonprofits with their social media and communications. I'm always down to explore.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh (or trying to).
Telling stories. Asking questions.
Holding the door.
Adventuring. Making up words.
Taking naps- it's kind of a superpower.
Looking at things with an open mind
The first things people usually notice about me
My sweet dance moves, probably because I'm busting them out in an inappropriate place.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I'm currently looking for a new book to read. Any recommendations would be welcome and would greatly improve my El commute.

Favorites: anything by Vonnegut or Tom Wolfe, Michael Chabon, the Autobiography of Malcolm X, the Walking Dead. I'm also a print fundamentalist- I still read magazines and the newspaper.

Movies: The Nice Guys is great- go see it! Classics: Motorcycle Diaries, Pan's Labyrinth, Elf, Ace Ventura (I can't help myself), The Dark Knight, and Scott Pilgrim.

TV: In John Oliver we trust. Game of Thrones. Silicon Valley. House of Cards. Vice News.

Music: Rock & Roll or anything with soul. Love: Phantom Planet, The Strokes, Tom Petty, and the Kinks among others. Songs that always make me happy: "No Rain" by Blind Melon.

Food: Banana bread, sushi, aged cheddar, good beer. Anything grilled.
The six things I could never do without
Rock & Roll
Something to write on
My CTA card
My cell phone
Caffeine
serendipity
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How someday our tweets will look like cave paintings- I mean those guys did nothing but talk about food they just ate.
On a typical Friday night I am
Checking out some kind of concert/performance, dancing to whatever music is playing, or hanging out with my friends at a dive bar. Not necessarily in that order.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm super transparent- ask me anything.
You should message me if
You reached the bottom of my profile. C'mon, why not?!
