My self-summary
I like people. People who engage in deep conversations, tell a crazy story, have a kind smile, or make me laugh till I cry... these are the ones who make life interesting. I love to learn about new things, so I am particularly drawn to people who are passionate about something- it almost doesn't matter what. If you can speak intelligently on a subject, I'll take the time to listen and learn.

I love to travel. I tend to be drawn to the great outdoors as opposed to cities, though my passion for good food and drink is sometimes at odds with my desire to enjoy open spaces.

My faith is the core of who I am. Finding someone who understands the significance of that statement is important to me.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I am a school social worker for an elementary school. For the ten years before that, I taught middle school special ed. People always comment, "You must be so patient!" However, I think the real key to success is a great sense of humor. Somewhere down the line, I hope to be working with at-risk teens in some sort of faith-based non-profit organization.
I’m really good at
Talking. Writing. Drinking coffee. Maintaining friendships. Lego Batman. Death stares (comes with the job).
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Let me start with the fact that I am terrible at favorites. It depends on my mood, the time of year, the company... That being said...I am always reading something. I often cheat and listen to books on tape during long drives. Some all-time favorites include "To Kill a Mockingbird," "Brave New World," "Mere Christianity," and "Pride and Prejudice," among others. A recent fun read was "Orange is the New Black." I love sharing books from my childhood with my students. Reading The Giver with my 7th graders was one of the highlights of my year.

I have a broad taste in movies. Let's move on. (Did I mention I hate favorites??)

Music depends on my mood. I used to play the cello and I sing, so music resonates with me, however, I don't listen to it as much as you would assume.

Food is fantastic. I like to try new restaurants. Any sort of Asian food would typically be my top choice, but I also love a good burger. I do love to cook.
The six things I could never do without
Redemption, friends who tell it like it is, new places to visit, Philly sports teams, a job that lends a sense of purpose, possibilities.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future.
My faith.
My job (unfortunately)
On a typical Friday night I am
On my living room couch, playing board games with my roommate, at a local dive bar listening to a friend's band, at the stadium rooting on my Phils or Flyers, or on a roadtrip to visit friends. I spend my weeks managing crises. Weekends are mine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My roomate works in a board game store, so my house now contains 100+ board games. If I don't have plans, it's not rare to find me at home gaming with a couple of friends.
