My self-summary
I'm pretty much your standard starry-eyed, kale-eating, NPR-listening, liberal-intellectual idealist.
What I’m doing with my life
Designing my way to a better world. Or, at least, that's how I spend my workdays. I'm a creative director focusing on branding and campaigns for progressive nonprofits. And, as of this year, I get to do it as the owner of my very own business.
I’m really good at
Spelling. I could probably kick your ass at spelling. Other things I'm also not too shabby at: campfire-building, map-reading, sandcastle-architecting, fitted-sheet-folding, semi-experimental-baking, pun-making, adventure-taking, hyphenation. On the flipside, I'm an absolutely atrocious bowler but I'll gladly do it anyway.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hopefully my smile, since I'm usually laughing, smirking, or some combination of the two.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite movie is Die Hard...followed closely by Pride and Prejudice (the BBC version). So go figure. I never get tired of Jaws even though I'm convinced it's to blame for my fear of the ocean. And I'm a sucker for anything Wes Anderson, Martin Scorsese, or Alfred Hitchcock.

Books I could read over and over and over again: Cloud Atlas, The Blind Assassin, The Visual Display of Quantitative Information; Books I've read recently and am still thinking about: The Goldfinch, Life After Life; Books I'm perpetually only halfway through: Moby Dick

Favorite food...all of them? In a car-ride game of, "If you could eat just one food for the rest of your life (and, yes, it would magically satisfy all your nutritional needs)" I recently answered peach pie. But I concede there may be flaws with that choice.

Definitely "music that can be listened to outdoors for free" tops the list. Beyond that, it sort of veers wildly between soul, bluegrass, and classic punk.

Shows are probably unsurprising: The Walking Dead, Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black, Louie, and Mad Men (RIP).
The six things I could never do without
Friends (cliche and obvious, but true)
A decent burger
A good beer (preferably alongside the burger)
The Sunday New York Times
Running shoes
Sunshine
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Just about everything. And pretty opinionated about some of it, but very curious and up for a healthy debate on the rest.
You should message me if
You're interesting and smart and thoughtful and engaged in what's going on in the world...but also goofy and warm and able to enjoy the simple stuff.
