My self-summary
Lifelong New Yorker turned DC transplant...trying to make sense of our nation’s crazy capital.
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated from Brown in 2010. I've been working as a television news producer ever since. I have a love/hate relationship with my job. I get paid to follow what's going on in the world, which is absolutely fantastic. The hours, however, are tough and the content can occasionally be questionable. Sometimes I think Hunter S. Thompson said it best: "The television business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also the negative side."
I’m really good at
Being nocturnal (I used to work the graveyard shift on a morning news program)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
It would take me a dozen lifetimes to finish all the books I want to read. Some of my favorites include: Catch 22, The Things They Carried, Nine Stories, White Noise, Empire Falls, Fun Home, Maus, The Plot Against America, Cat's Cradle, Guns Germs & Steel, A Hope in the Unseen, Me Talk Pretty Pretty One Day, Kitchen Confidential, The Unwinding

Movies: The Shawshank Redemption, The Godfather, Mystic River, Network, Dr. Strangelove, The Usual Suspects

Shows: Breaking Bad, Mad Men, 30 Rock, Community, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Daily Show, Morning Joe, 60 Minutes, Sunday Morning

Music: I'm a musician, so this is a really tough question for me. My tastes are pretty wide-ranging. I like everything from jazz (Wayne Shorter, Pat Metheny, Michael Brecker), to funk (Soulive, Trombone Shorty, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings), to singer-songwriters (Tracy Chapman, Dan Bern, Ray LaMontagne), to alt-rock (Pearl Jam, Florence and the Machine, The Black Keys).
Six things I could never do without
1. Craft Beer
2. Alliteration
3. NPR
4. Witty Banter
5. Dark Chocolate
6. My dignity
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-The rationale behind the tooth-fairy's business model.
-Which missing, adorable white girl is going to dominate this week's news cycle
On a typical Friday night I am
Out at a craft beer bar, drinking the best IPA I can find.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once interned at one of those infamous, super trashy daytime talk shows (one critic called it "the worst thing on television - period."). One show we did featured a man who claimed that he was vampire. He was the most normal guest we ever had...
You should message me if
-You're able to find that missing, adorable white girl (and I can book you for the exclusive interview)
-You can appreciate someone with an absurd sense of humor...or better yet, have one yourself
The two of us
