My self-summary
EDIT: Let's repudiate and destroy fascism together. And be kind as hell to everyone.

I love fun, but I work too hard and occasionally need a reminder to have some.

Born and raised in northeast Queens. New York is like a big sister to me; I admire her, but sometimes I get sick of her and wish she'd just shut up. I love discovering new places near and far. I'm a compulsive listmaker who's actually pretty great at living in the now. No one can get enough of my dance moves. Take me to a block party and I will make friends.
What I’m doing with my life
Agency copywriter. (I promise I've never made anyone call me a "creative"😷.) On my own time, I write edgy short fiction about insufferable people. I love photography, thrifting, theater, comedy, aerobic yoga, knitting, cooking, baking, hiking, ice skating, travel, board games and Duolingo.

The six things I could never do without
Apart from physiological needs and human relationships:

1) My laptop, Holly
2) My iPhone, Thom
3) Financial independence
4) Leisure time
5) Amtrak
6) Pens
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How could I have saved Amy Winehouse?
Will they notice if I check my phone?
What's something I have not yet done — and can I do it today?
Am I subverting a trope or just becoming one?
Do I need real shoes for this?
On a typical Friday night I am
going somewhere new with old friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I want it to work.
