My self-summary
After 20 years away living in Boston, Barcelona and, most recently, New York, I've returned to Providence. Forgot what a lovely city it is, though when I grew up here it was a lot shittier.
What I’m doing with my life
Just got a new job as head of instructional design for a company at the Harvard Innovation Lab (shameless name dropping I know); also casually working on various fiction writing projects
I’m really good at
Procrastinating; writing imperfect sentences; holding my liquor
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm invariably the 3rd, 5th, or 7th wheel in a group despite being the hottest, funniest, and smartest. Also, my humility.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many books to list so some favorite authors: Don DeLillo, Alice Munro, George Saunders, Ian McEwan, Faulkner, Raymond Carver, Lorrie Moore, and many many more. Fave music: classical, garage/psychedelic, 70-80s punk, non-fey indie, anything Al Green. Food: pretty much anything that once walked the earth, swam its seas, or flew its skies.
The six things I could never do without
A good book; a great burger; Bach's piano music; my laptop; Pavement's Slanted and Enchanted; necking
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The perfect sentence.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I take showers just because I'm bored.
You should message me if
You have more to say than "Hey!"...seriously that's WAY worse than a like. If you're gonna make the effort, say something smart
