My self-summary
I'm a native Chicagoan who has lived in Brooklyn since 2000. I'm really happy to live, work and raise my daughter here, so have no plans to leave. I was also thrilled that the Cubs finally won the World Series after a 108 year draught, but that euphoria lasted less than a week and now back to reality that sports are just sports but our country is heading for some rough times.
What I’m doing with my life
A few years ago I switched from a more conventional career, so I can focus entirely on what used to be my "hobbies". I'm very busy running several school gardens and a small farms, and also creating art work. It's taken a few years to find my niche, but it seems to be working...
I’m really good at
making people laugh, growing my own food, making kimchi, and also making good coffee.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many books to pick a few, but some of the recent ones I loved are The Nix, The Sellout, City on Fire, Purity and Let the Great World Spin and Super Sad True Love Story. Others from years ago, The Leopard, Confessions of Zeno, Tropic of Capricorn and Sister Carrie.... As for movies, I like a ton of movies old and new, including The Fall, Midnight Cowboy, La Strada, The Leopard, The Killing Fields, and Tell No One. Also, Bad Santa, Trainwreck, Superbad, The Hangover (and sequels..).

Food: pretty much everything, lots of variety. Especially good peaches in the summer and good blood oranges or clementines in the winter.
The six things I could never do without
coffee, iPhone, a book to read, living in a walkable neighborhood that is filled with people, a kitchen full of fresh produce, and last but not least...knowing that my daughter is safe and happy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Now I'm a bit too preoccupied with the political situation. I guess I've always been preoccupied with it, but now there's more worry involved. I'm trying to figure out what we can do beyond just having opinions and arguing with old high school acquaintances on FB.
On a typical Friday night I am
It varies, but maybe recovering from an exhausting week, sometimes watching a movie on Netflix...
You should message me if
You think we have something but not everything in common, and you would maybe like to meet in person eventually.
