As for the fun stuff, born and raised on Long Island. Mostly accentless, if you were worried. Come summer, I can be found swimming. Come winter(fell), I keep my A/C on. I really (really) love dogs and hope to name my future basset hound Chester Copperpot. (Double points if you can name that movie. No Google cheating.)
I also am pretty serious about my television intake, adventures outside the city, and my goal to read 60 books this year.
Pretty darn good at cooking, Cranium, and remembering obscure details.
Books: Cloud Atlas, The Cider House Rules, Middlesex, A Prayer for Owen Meany, Shadow of the Wind, The World According to Garp, Let the Great World Spin, so many more.
Shows: Homeland, Game of Thrones, True Blood, The Mindy Project, Top of the Lake, Hannibal, Six Feet Under, Lost, Big Love, True Detective (which you should also be watching)
Music: Mumford & Sons, Ben Howard, The Lumineers, Florence + the Machine, Of Monsters and Men, and the like, plus an embarrassing amount of top 40 to dance to
Movies: Atonement, The Goonies, Shakespeare in Love, Silver Linings Playbook, Shame, Pitch Perfect
