My self-summary
To know me is to discover that people sometimes don't make any sense at all.

- I'm originally from New Jersey. I'm a sensible driver.
- I volunteer for a suicide hotline. I seize up if I get two e-mails in the same minute at work.
- I'm a podcast addict, but there's no feeling more satisfying than when my Unplayed playlist hits 0:00.
- I lived in DC for four years after college. I didn't work for the government.
- I listen to a ton of indie rock. I also get fired up by Luke Bryan and old Miles Davis songs.
- I've never used Snapchat. I am 28 years old. Is that a dealbreaker, Internet?

- I'm enjoying being single. But for the right person I'd be thrilled to be in a relationship.
What I’m doing with my life
- Working for a mutual fund manager. Just admitted to graduate business school, but hush hush! No one's supposed to know that yet...
- Taking theater dance classes, so I can overcome the idea that the apex of my dancing "career" was the moment my profile photo was taken.
- Running: I recently ran two marathons in three weeks just to prove that I could. Now that I have my weekends back, I have no idea what I'm supposed to do. Sleep? Post pictures of my parents' dog on Instagram? Pity shop?
I’m really good at
Forgetting to take my vitamins in the morning. And by forgetting I mean the bottle's been empty for months and I haven't bothered to get a new one.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Usually something that has a really compelling looking card at the bookstore. I bought "Room" recently not even knowing it was a movie, but because "Jessie" at Word Jersey City said she really liked it. I don't know you Jessie, but if it's good enough for you...

Music: The Gaslight Anthem, Beach Slang, anything Andrew McMahon makes, Matt & Kim, Courtney Barnett, Julien Baker, St. Lucia, the Jazz Classics Spotify playlist, and something new every day.

Food: Most things, but I recently spotted a highly-Yelp-reviewed Chicago-style pizzeria in NYC, someone needs to tell me if this is a capital offense or just really intrepid.

Shows: Anything at all about how comical dating is these days. Also John Oliver, Broad City, The Americans, House of Cards, Master of None, Bojack Horseman, The Man in the High Castle. Basically, anything witty or about how America is doomed.
The six things I could never do without
Spotify.
One of those Amazon devices that you can command to do anything except, apparently, help write your OkCupid profile.
Two good books.
Flight of the Conchords on DVD.
The Music Hall of Williamsburg. I'm at concerts there so often that I wonder why the bouncers don't hassle me for my share of the utilities.
That running watch my old roommate's dog mistook for food but keeps counting miles nonetheless.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why anyone ever replaces the toilet paper roll under. What a terrible time to have to solve a puzzle.

Which theme-song-from-a-coming-of-age-TV-show is the best. I never watched Dawson's Creek, but that Paula Cole song, man...
On a typical Friday night I am
At a concert, volunteering, catching a ballgame (Ha! Halfhearted pun!), or, let's be real, something significantly more mundane because I probably did those things earlier this week and honestly, PJs are always an easy decision to make.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I saw Nickelback once.
You should message me if
you've taken up a hobby and actually stuck with it. There's a guitar, a French-English dictionary, a bike helmet, and a wok that are counting on you!
