My self-summary
I am a New York transplant, and as such, am exceptionally snobby about both pizza and bagels. I'm super snarky, and I love cheesy jokes.

Describing yourself in a dating profile feels inauthentic but I'm giving it the old college try.

I love to cook - but hate doing dishes. One of my favorite pasttimes is to learn how to cook something that sounds like a thing people don't make. (i.e. poptarts. I make amazing poptarts. #humblebrag)

I try to experience as much of the world as I possibly can. I have a million hobbies and interests that I've dabbled in, but I'm not an expert in any of them.

I love people-watching, eavesdropping on their conversations, and trying to figure out their life stories. People are endlessly fascinating to me.

Brunch is my favorite meal of the day.

What I’m doing with my life
I decided I wanted to work in TV when I picked up a video camera for the first time at 13. I moved out here to pursue my dreams and I've been pretty successful. I'm a freelance producer and I love my job.
I’m really good at
Combining words together to make new words. It's a pastime.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, my obnoxious hipster glasses (if I'm wearing them), my red hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
In no particular order or genre distinction:

The Thin Man, Casablanca, Sushi, Harry Potter, How I Met Your Mother, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Scrubs, Boy Meets World, Joshua Radin, Jason Mraz, When Harry Met Sally, Enders Game (not the movie), Clerks, Back to the Future, Star Trek, Daria, Degrassi (I KNOW, it's for kids, but I've been watching it since I was 13. I've made more of a commitment to that show than basically anything/anyone else in my life, I need to stick with it.), Lost, 10 Things I Hate About You, Clueless, superhero movies, The Princess Bride, Joshua Radin, Freakonomics, Malcolm Gladwell books, Dan Ariely books, social psychology
The six things I could never do without
Friends - I have a very tight knit group of friends who are my family out here. They have gotten me through absolutely everything and I'd be lost without them.
Trendy restaurants - how could you live without small plates of weird foods?
A car - we live in LA
My cell phone - I lost my carrier pigeon. :/
Books
Laughter - it's just good for you.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'm going to make for dinner.

Whether or not I'm just like Elliot from Scrubs.

How I can change the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching movies, staying up all night talking, driving for no good reason, playing Monopoly, drinking at bars, making friends with strangers, playing mini-golf, getting to know someone, splitting a bottle of wine with girlfriends, listening to podcasts, trying to cook something I've never made before.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I know all the words to One Week by Barenaked Ladies.

I wanted to be in the circus when I was a kid. After spending a bunch of money on juggling, poi, and fire baton twirling classes, my parents decided that wasn't a real career I could have and made me stop.

I've taken up some circus classes again as a hobby and I love it, but I probably won't join the circus anytime soon.
You should message me if
You are fun, funny, interesting, and not a jerk. I'm all of those things as well.
