My self-summary
Almost-native. Witty, self-aware, and generally a pretty relaxed person. I grew up in Texas, Japan, and Colorado--quite an interesting mash-up. I was exposed to a ton of vastly different cultures growing up, which not only sparked my travel bug but I think shaped me into an accepting and curious person. Seven years in Miami taught me to appreciate this fabulous state. I've been back for almost four years and couldn't be happier about it!
I’m really good at
Skeeball, reading people, doing yoga but not taking pictures of it, writing, water-related activities, napping, empathy, not taking this site too seriously.
The first things people usually notice about me
Sunglasses? Smile? Riding crop?

I probably look just like your [cousin/coworker/best friend from seventh grade].
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I double majored in film and creative writing, so obviously I like these things. But this is like asking me to pick a favorite child, so I'm just going to put a few favorites...

Books/Authors: Middlesex, Cutting for Stone, Bonfire of the Vanities, Mary Roach, Stephen King, Ernest Hemingway, Chuck Palahniuk

Movies: Sandlot. Done. OK fine, there's more, it's just too much--let's save this one for later. (Bam, built-in conversation starter.)

Shows: Arrested Development, Breaking Bad, Portlandia, the new Wet Hot American Summer, anything HBO, minus most recent season of True Detective. Someone seriously dropped the ball with that one.

Music: Here's my cliche response: I believe almost any genre has the possibility of producing "good" music--except maybe polka, I don't like polka. Alabama Shakes, Shakey Graves, Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Otis Redding, alt-J, Sam Cooke, Sublime, CCR, Robert Johnson. I work for the Denver branch of a global concert series, so local/live music is big for me.

Food: All of it except tomatoes. I HATE tomatoes (but I wish I didn't, it's super inconvenient).

Other: TED talks, almost all NPR, Louis CK, Alphonse Mucha, Radiotopia podcasts, Book of Mormon* (The musical. Definitely not the book.)
The six things I could never do without
A sense of humor
My family and friends (and yes I do include my animals)
Nature/sunshine--I'm solar powered
Stretching
Ceiling fans
GPS
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What shapes people?
Do I feel like washing my hair today?
What Pandora station am I in the mood for?
The plasticity of the human brain. Whoa.
Online dating etiquette. Like, if you send me a message and tell me you want to pay me for sex, does a simple "fuck off" suffice? Or is it cool to just not answer?
On a typical Friday night I am
MCing a show. Teaching and/or taking a yoga class. Exploring all this delightful city has to offer. Netflix and chill?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
David Sedaris is my spirit animal.
You should message me if
You're emotionally intelligent and open-minded

You think you can make milk shoot out of my nose

You want to talk books, movies, travel

The word "irregardless" makes you want to punch someone in the face

If you know (and love, or at least appreciate) Total Ghost, we're going to get along great!
