My self-summary
i've got nebraska roots, but consider myself more of a californian at heart. i went to usc for college and grad school and am finishing up my mba at ucla now. in between i spent a couple of years in nyc, south africa, and chicago. i've been back in the city of angels for a few years now and am excited to keep checking things off my LA bucket list.

on the weekends you'll probably find me on the beach, preferably at a volleyball net. i dig running, playing golf and tennis, rock climbing, snowboarding, and going to outdoor festivals and concerts. oh, and eating. i *love* food. i also like to take pictures of stuff and have taken a couple pottery classes in case you're on the search for a shoddy looking bowl or an ugly mug to impress your friends.

i picked up the travel bug after college and have been doing my best to see the world since. the next place on my list is south america, so if you've hiked the inca trail or have any recommendations for the area i'd be keen to hear about it. or, if you think you've got a better idea of where i should go, let me hear it.
I’m really good at
making pancakes. i'm on a quest to find the perfect flapjack.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
reading for me goes in streaks. if i get into a book i have to finish it immediately, then sometimes take weeks or even months off between reads. if it's not that interesting i'll just get stuck in the middle and never finish, but always feel weird about starting a new one before it's done. favorites include david sedaris, nick hornby, and the harry potter series. it's mostly case studies these days though in case you have a keen interest in the economics of eharmony or doing business in dubai.

too many movies to choose from. i like comedy and action/adventure flicks and anything pixar. cheesy teenage comedies are also a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine. some favorites include the princess bride, the shawshank redemption, definitely maybe, braveheart, iron man, and the lord of the rings series. i have a bit of a man crush on ryan reynolds and an actual crush on isla fisher, and i could watch the scene in forgetting sarah marshall where he sings the vampire song over and over.

i don't watch much tv, other than sports (college football and any playoffs), netflix, and hbo so i'm not up to date on much. big fan of game of thrones, westworld, and silicon valley. i also like archer, himym, the league, 30 rock, scrubs, arrested development, breaking bad, and the wire.

i love music, especially live. i'm big on indie rock and old school hip hop but will gladly go to a blues or jazz show. favorites include bon iver, the national, frightened rabbit, mountain goats, the magnetic fields, florence + the machine, radiohead, lykke li, mumford & sons, the black keys, the civil wars, and the xx.

food... yes, please (but hold the mayo... that stuff is disgusting).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why groupon is convinced that i am really a narcissistic woman in disguise. no groupon, i do not need a brazilian wax, liposuction treatment, and heavenly massage combo pack. thank you though, that's very thoughtful of you.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i *hate* shaving. every time i do i feel like i am secretly being punished. i'm sorry world... whatever i did to offend you, i apologize. just don't take it out on my face.

i'm a terrible singer, but i will probably do it around you anyway... just not at karaoke. my sadism has it's limits.
You should message me if
you know a cool restaurant, bar, or area of the city to check out.
you've got an extra ticket for concert you're dying to see.
you want a running, tennis, or golf partner.
you have a large sum of money that you need help getting out of nigeria.
The two of us
