My self-summary
NJ native, NYC transplant. Reading books like it's my job (spoiler alert: it is my job).

I love: breakfast for dinner, live music, comedy shows, politics podcasts, people watching in the park, whiskey on the rocks, wandering around the city, and going to the beach.

I am: funny, sarcastic, a speed reader, a subway stander, an iced coffee addict (but I'm trying to quit), a rom-com lover...and getting over the fact that I'm a confirmed Hufflepuff. Sigh.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a production editor at one of the big 5 book publishers in NYC.

Reading, all the time. Let's be friends on Goodreads.

Exploring Astoria. Any suggestions?
I’m really good at
Banging my teeth on drinking glasses, math, rapping (yes, really), curating excellent Spotify playlists.
The first things people usually notice about me
Curly hair? You tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: everything by Harlan Coben, Jonathan Tropper, Greg Iles, Michael Chabon, and F. Scott Fitzgerald. 11/22/63. Gone Girl. Harry Potter fo' life. Asking me what my favorite book is gives me anxiety cause I just can't choose.

Movies: 10 Things I Hate About You, Silver Linings Playbook, You've Got Mail, How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days, My Best Friend's Wedding, When Harry Met Sally, Back to the Future, The Wedding Singer, My Cousin Vinny.

TV: Friends, Parks and Rec, Gilmore Girls, Veep, The West Wing, Last Week Tonight, Arrested Development, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, The Mindy Project, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Always Sunny, New Girl, The Office, Scrubs, Boy Meets World.

Music: Led Zeppelin, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Fleetwood Mac, Sam Cooke, Adele, Beyoncé, and Maroon 5 are all time favorites. Big classic rock fan, but I also love 90s pop and early 00s everything.

Podcasts: How Did This Get Made?, Doug Loves Movies, Comedy Bang Bang, You Made It Weird, Anna Faris is Unqualified, Missi and Zach Might Bang, The West Wing Weekly, Pod Save America, NPR Politics, FiveThirtyEight, Up First, The Daily. Suggestions welcome!

Food: Yes. More specifically: steak, cheeseburgers, Italian subs, coffee ice cream, breakfast sandwiches, Mexican.
Six things I could never do without
Books, friends, iced coffee, headphones, whiskey, sriracha, podcasts (seven things, cause okc doesn't tell me what to do)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can get tickets to see Hamilton, Beyoncé, and Adele without being forced to live on the streets. (Update: I'm 1/3. Bey was awesome.) Also politics, usually to my own detriment.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing with Netflix after a long week, or out with friends (super original, I know). But I will never say no to tearing it up at silent disco 💃🏻
You should message me if
You're a friend of the pod.

You fancy yourself some kind of Chandler Bing/Jim Halpert/Ben Wyatt hybrid.

Or if you want to experience my sunny disposition and sparkling personality in real life. And by that I mean get a drink and talk about stuff.
