My self-summary
This quote from the movie Auntie Mame sums up my perspective: "Life's a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!"

I like to try stuff!

I think it is very important to keep an active body/mind and do GOOD things for the soul!

I enjoy nice things but can rough it.

I love to travel and have been to a lot of places. Some include Thailand, Cambodia, Japan, China, Laos, Vietnam, Italy, London, Colombia, Costa Rica, Spain, France, Mexico... I'm dying to go to Patagonia... and hug a penguin :)

I like to watch sports, though probably not as much as you.

I tend to over use exclamation points!!! That doesn't mean I am crazy, just happy and enthusiastic!
What I’m doing with my life
I grew up in Long Island, went to college in Baltimore, studied abroad in Thailand, and now have been living in NYC for almost 10 years.

I don't like to be bored - so I like projects, goals, and planning activities. I ran the NYC marathon twice - that was fun... And will probably never do it again! ;)
I’m really good at
Gathering groups, navigating around new cities, talking with and meeting people, picking music, making up recipes, decorating / design stuff ...
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and dimples?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am not a huge TV person. But do love the Daily Show, Colbert, Seinfeld reruns, and The Voice!

Books: I love non-fiction. I started a book club so I'm forced to read 1 book a month. Ones I've loved are: Gone Girl, Art of Racing in the Rain, Outliers, Dance, Dance, Dance by Murakami, Vonnegut...

Movies: Rudy, Notting Hill, Amelie, Woody Allen films, Like Water for Chocolate, The Hangover, Up, documentaries...

Music: SO MUCH TO LOVE! From Radiohead to Alabama Shakes...The National... Bruuuuuce, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Brazilian Girls, Killers, Andrea Bocelli, Jay-Z, Local Natives, Adele...

Food: Generally anything fresh, healthy, spicy...
