My self-summary
I'm a runner, teacher, artist/maker, adventurer, and lover of food.

I teach art to a bunch of unruly (yet lovable) middle schoolers. I'm relatively new to education, but it is undoubtedly the most challenging and gratifying job I've held thus far. I love art and sharing the experience of making things with my students.

I'm pretty active and often training for a distance race (right now, my second NYC marathon). Most nights, I'm either taking a class at the gym or going for a run. As much as I love living in Brooklyn, I appreciate jaunts outside the city for hiking/skiing/beach trips/exploring.

getting on the slowest line at the grocery store. ;)

The six things I could never do without
aside from my family and friends and health and all that good stuff...

1. running sneakers
2. a stack of books by my bedside
3. expertly curated spotify playlists
4. a means of documenting my experiences (camera/journal/sketchbook)
5. travel
6. weekend brunches (especially after long runs!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
lesson plans, the next race I'm going to run, and what restaurant I want to try next...
On a typical Friday night I am
While there is no typical night, you can most likely find me having dinner or hanging with friends.
You should message me if
I'm looking for someone who is up for sharing adventures (and the non-adventures, too!). Ideally, you are kind, happy, and confident. You know how to be responsible, but you also know how to have fun and be spontaneous. Bonus points if you can make me laugh.

If you've read my profile and think we would get along, send me a message!
