I'm looking for someone to complement me (and maybe even compliment me, occasionally!), but also push me out of my comfort zone—we should all be doing things that make us nervous more often—and introduce me to new things. In return I promise to make you lots of mixtapes made up exclusively of bands of which you've never heard and to proofread all of your cover letters/emails/Facebook statuses as needed. Passion, talent, and genuineness are attractive to me... pretty much everything else is negotiable.
I'm a playwright and member of a professional feminist theatre company here in DC.
Otherwise, I like going to concerts, wine touring, reading, discovering new podcasts, collecting quotes, volunteering, etc.
Listening: My tastes tend to run to the obscure (Spotify says my favorite genres of 2016 include "Stomp and Holler" and "Chamber Pop," so that's... a thing), but I enjoy listening to Top 40 on the rare occasion I'm in a car (see more on that below). I also love making excessively long and aggressively themed playlists.
Food-ing: People who don't like desserts scare me. The list of foods I won't eat is very short (and includes avocados [I know! Please don't give me a hard time about this!], raisins [the devil's fruit], and coconut water).
- The Internet
- Library card
- A journal in which I can jot down good quotes/random bits of dialogue
- Air conditioning
- I have an unironic love of unicorns. My desk at work looks like a Lisa Frank store exploded nearby.
- I haven't owned a car or driven regularly since I was 17 (although I have a valid license, just in case). I've only driven on a highway once, and that was with a driving teacher in the car (he had his own break, which was reassuring/not at all reassuring). All of which is to say: You're driving, but I do my best to be an entertaining/appreciative passenger!
