What I’m doing with my life
I'm originally from Chicago, but I came to New York a few years ago for grad school. I'm currently working as an editor at a trade magazine, but before that, I worked for a trade magazine in Chicago, a newspaper group in central Illinois, an environmental blog in Ukraine, and taught English in the Czech Republic.
I’m really good at
Expanding the definition of "within walking distance." I love walking around New York and consider most of Manhattan to be walkable from Brooklyn. A great day for me would involve hours of walking new neighborhoods or just my favorite Saturday haunts: hitting the farmer's market, meandering around with an iced coffee, browsing used bookstores, and then meeting friends for dinner.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite authors: Atul Gawande, David Grann, Joan Didion, Jon Krakauer, Ian Frazier and Tony Horowitz.

My Pandora station is currently set to Of Monsters and Men, though I've also been listening to a lot of Etta James.

Big fan of dessert and anything chocolate, salted caramel, or macaron-related.
The six things I could never do without
Family, friends, running, books, travel, dark chocolate
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Leaving the country. International trips provide the chance to use my limited and extremely impractical foreign vocabulary. (If you'd like to learn how to say "nose" in German, "nutmeg" in Polish, and "ham" in Czech, look no further.) A friend and I decided our New Year's resolution should be to take advantage of our yellow fever immunizations and travel more.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing something like meeting friends for dinner, the occasional movie night or watching a musical improv show. And if they hosted the Moth storytelling events on Fridays, I would always be there. I'm obsessed with the Moth. So great.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll get back to you on this one ...
