My self-summary
I grew up in CT. Went to University of Richmond for college and studied Art and Art History. Took a year off to decide what I wanted to do and lived in CT. I applied and got into Columbia University for Grad School, so I moved to NYC. Spent 2 years in the Art Ed program, got my masters, and have been teaching for the past 2 and a half years in Brooklyn at a public school. I love what I do, but it can definitely be challenging some days. I relax by reading, visiting museums, spending time with friends, or going running...I'm currently in the process of training for my first half marathon!

I spend a lot of time thinking about
A little about a lot of things
On a typical Friday night I am
out with friends, relaxing on my couch with a movie, or at my parent's place in CT making pizza with my mom
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
As mentioned above, one of my favorite things to eat is beef stew, and it has been since I was 5. My first "love" was a boy named Brandon who went to the same babysitter as I did when I was in Pre-K. One day, in an effort to win him over, I told him I would make beef stew every night for him if he married me. He looked at me in disgust and told me he hated beef stew. I was crushed, but accepted it was not meant to be if he could not share my love of beef stew. I now make my own from scratch in my slow cooker...I don't plan to make it every night, but I remain uninterested and wary of beef stew haters
You should message me if
You're kind, you're looking to be in a committed relationship (read: those looking for a hook-up buddy can leave my page now), have good values, are motivated (stoners can also keep it moving), don't pronounce espresso as "expresso" (pet peeve), family is important to you, you're honest, and especially if you like Nebraska Cornhuskers
The two of us
