My self-summary
I'm a writer who used to study astrophysics and now works in theatre marketing. I figure if I keep pretending I know what I'm doing I'll eventually stop needing to pretend. In the meantime, I'm trying to live a life that is interesting enough to justify being a writer.
What I’m doing with my life
Just moved back to the Bay from New York after graduating. Now working my dream job at Berkeley Repertory Theatre and enjoying all the amazing food and weather I missed on the East Coast.
I’m really good at
being serious when I need to be, and silly the rest of the time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm seventeen feet tall and bright pink. But in reality (vastly overrated as it may be) it’s probably my hair, which can be described either as a “luxuriantly exotic cascade of soft curls” or “too long.”
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: War and Peace, The Iliad, Crime and Punishment, Yertle the Turtle.

Movies: I feel like putting Fight Club would make me like just about everyone else on this site. That said, I love Fight Club. Plus: A Fish Called Wanda, Zoolander, Love and Other Drugs, Annie Hall and all four Step Up movies (long story)

TV Shows: The Wire, Girls, Newsroom (basically anything on HBO).

Food: Chinese, Japanese, Burmese, Xianese. Plus, I'm learning to cook for real (I sous chefed part time in a professional kitchen for a couple years part time but I've only recently started crafting my own recipes)
The six things I could never do without
My friends and my family (the obvious, possibly boring two), plus my Shakespeare collection, post-it notes, my stuffed animal platypus (seriously), and parentheses (apparently)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Muffins
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends and a few bottles of wine. Or writing. Sometimes both.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I had to choose between being nice and being interesting, I would probably chose interesting.
You should message me if
I see no reason for the "if" here. You should message me. It's that simple.
