My self-summary
Basically, I love travel and adventure and meeting new people. I don't like to plan when I travel. My best stories are from getting lost.

I might have a rough exterior when you first meet me, but I'm very loving and caring once you get through it. I tend to like non-traditional people - crazy, weird, and quirky. People who have ideas that amuse and fascinate me.

Last summer, I drove cross country and back with my pit-bull, Melvin. It was quite an epic journey. The trip reminded me how good it feels to be out in nature. I'm beginning to wonder if I'm really a city person. Now that the winter is over, I want to do lots of hiking and camping

I love the Moth and This American Life and I want to make my own shows like that, but I get overwhelmed about where to start. I like talking to old people and hearing about how things used to be. I would time travel if I could.

I was raised Jewish and feel a connection to others who were also. But I am not religious or practicing.

I also enjoy food. Food is good.
What I’m doing with my life
I am managing a museum education program that is exclusively working with Philly public schools. It's fun!

I'm being a great dog mom.

I'm getting obsessed with projects in my house and garden. I want to replace all the ugly home depot doors in my house with salvaged doors, but sizing has proven to be a challenge. I haven't given up, though!

I'm making quilts (inspired by Gees Bend)

I often go antiquing on Sunday mornings.

Otherwise... good question - what AM I doing with my life??
I’m really good at
remembering names, numbers, and specific episodes from 80s tv - particularly perfect strangers. I'm reasonable at salsa dancing and traveling a lot. also crossword puzzles. but not sudoku. but yes cryptograms
The first things people usually notice about me
my hair.
it
is
curly
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books: memoirs, sedaris, eggers, Steinbeck, The Jungle ..

Tv: all the usuals although I don't watch a ton - only on DVD or streaming. . The office, breaking bad, mad men, the wire, arrested dev, Louis ck, colbert, daily, curb, house of cards - basically i like it if it's funny, clever, and/or good.

Movies: besides goonies? oh, marx brothers!

Music: american routes, new orleans brass bands, regina spektor, leonard cohen, paul simon - and the patsy cline pandora station.

Food: baked mac and cheese is the ultimate best, but not so good for me. I love butter
The six things I could never do without
nature, my bike, hugs, silliness, friends, travel
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'm doing with my life.

How to turn junk into something cool.

Picture frames - I find cool ones at flea markets and thrift stores and I cut them down and reframe random stuff.

I also think a lot about education and how to set kids up for success in life. And community development.

I also think about guinea pigs because they are cute and squirrels because they are agile....and cute. Basically, I like rodents.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having dinner/drinks with friends or working obsessively on my latest project.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I already told you.... I like rodents!
