My self-summary
Back at this after a bit of time away. I'm not as hipster as some of those photos would suggest.

Daily Activities include:
-- running through greenpoint
-- getting people to eat more mayonnaise
-- judging (silently and aloud)
-- actively trying not to order the hungry bear at enid's
-- listening to sonic youth's teen age riot on an endless loop
-- going to gwyneth paltrow for lifestyle advice
-- wondering why i never run into courtney love at dell'anima
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an associate director at a research and brand strategy firm ... basically brands hire us to talk to consumers and report back (how do we get them to eat more mayonnaise?) ... it's very fun, I'm paid to talk to people and think, which I love.

When I'm not doing that, I'm all about traveling (which I get to do often), running, movies, reading, and exploring Brooklyn bars and restaurants with friends.
I’m really good at
lately it's been navigating new cities without a hitch, throwing rambling dinner parties, making playlists, buying cardigans
The first things people usually notice about me
glasses and comic timing
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books -- I frequently re-read Play It As It Lays, The Witches of Eastwick, Less Than Zero, and Postcards from the Edge. The Accidental Tourist. I also recently read The Easter Parade and think it's one of the best.
Movies -- Boyhood made me cry several times on an airplane, so that's something
I'm big into Woody Allen, Pedro Almodovar, Todd Haynes, David Lynch, and Something Wild. My favorite line (from probably my favorite movie): "Wouldn't it be great if insecurity and desperation made you more attractive? If needy was a turn-on?" -- from Broadcast News
Food -- octopus, roasted red peppers, brussel sprouts, soba noodles
Music -- M83, Wild Nothing, Wild Beasts, Teengirl Fantasy, Beach Fossils. My favorite band is Sonic Youth and my favorite all-time album is My Bloody Valentine's Loveless.
TV -- 30 Rock, Mary Tyler Moore, Ab Fab, Parks and Rec, The Comeback, Daria, Arrested Development, Damages
The six things I could never do without
iphone (cliche but true)
cardigans
whatever book i'm reading
friends (also cliche, but also true)
sense of humor
club soda
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- what it would be like if i ever moved to Austin
- what it would be like to live in a loft
On a typical Friday night I am
usually out with friends, hopefully in brooklyn
You should message me if
you're creative, involved (in your community, etc.), funny, (mostly) not crazy, and are ready to start something.
