My self-summary
Naples transplant, political reporter for the Naples Daily News.

ENFP

Born in Michigan, raised in Pittsburgh, undergrad in Arizona, grad in New York (plus life), short stint in DC.
What I’m doing with my life
Reporting. Writing a book. Pretending I have free time.
I’m really good at
having entire conversations in my head while I walk down the street and then realizing that I'm lost. Also, accidentally following people.
The first things people usually notice about me
a boy in college once told me that the first thing he noticed about me is that I am "very thorough." He then asked me to be his econometrics partner. It worked out decently well.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books (sort of random): The Power Broker, Death and Life of Great American Cities, Handmaid's Tale, Middlesex, Waiting for Godot, Understanding Institutional Diversity, How Fiction Works, Infinite Jest, White Noise, Steppenwolf, Pride and Prejudice, The Time Traveler's Wife, A Farewell to Arms, Like the Red Panda, A Separate Peace, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, Tales of Ordinary Madness

Food: Italian, Indian, anything spicy, I love all food, can you really go wrong here? I eat a cheeseburger once a week. The fastest way to my heart is through delicious sushi and lots of sake... just saying.

Music (this list is old but i'm lazy): The Blow, Soko, Teen, Cherub, Grimes, Dirty Projectors, Wilco, The Chapin Sisters, The Xx, Jenny Lewis

Shows: latest obsession is Mozart in the Jungle, Deadwood is the best show of all time
The six things I could never do without
Food, love, shelter, ... what are those other essentials? Books, pedicures,.. oh wait, cross that last one out, trees - my roommmate tells me New Yorkers need on average 8 plants per room to breathe healthy air, I would be very sad to never see the ocean or a tall mountain again....hmmm - lots of money? Where do I find that?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
gentrification in a global society, online culture merging with offline culture and its relation to intimacy, mental illness, polyamory, love in general for the mobile world - these are writing topics.

I also think about how I wish I knew more about sports and sometimes about dark matter. I think a lot about how I might be a secretly a badass programmer.
On a typical Friday night I am
either trying to get R to be my friend or partying late and then sleeping late on Saturday because I'm still in my twenties and that's glorious.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I played tennis for years. I wasn't very good.

Also, I'm a mediocre cook and I often kill plants. There, those are three private things.
You should message me if
you read fiction, if you are into monogamy, if you know what you want.

Also, I generally like to meet creative people that I may be able to collaborate with in the future. People I could collaborate with most easily: programmers, math nerds, film makers, installation artists, possibly other writers.

I love to go to the theater, art shows, music less so but still into it.
