My self-summary
I'm a marathoner, artist, teacher, adventurer, and foodie.

I work as an art teacher at a public middle school. After working for a few years in marketing, I embarked on a scary (but ultimately worthwhile) career change to art education. I am passionate about working with kids and I think art is a way for us to make sense of ourselves and our experiences in the world. I dabble in all kinds of art -- everything from painting and drawing to printmaking and ceramics.

Outside of work, I love being active. I'm usually training for some kind of race (usually a marathon or a half marathon), but I also love yoga, dancing, skiing, and hiking.

I'm extremely close with my family and friends. I value my relationships with the people I love above all else. I have lived in NYC for about 5 years, and spent several years living in DC. Urban life suits me, but I love planning getaways to enjoy time in nature.

Some other things that I love... farmer's markets, cooking, traveling to new places (near or far), playing boggle, getting lost in bookstores, people watching, joe's coffee, museums, and marcel the shell.

On a typical Friday night I am
there is no typical friday night for me. i'm usually pretty exhausted by the end of the week, so it is likely something low-key. i'm more apt to be out and about on a saturday night.
You should message me if
I'm looking for someone who is kind, self-aware, passionate about something, and active. You know when to be serious and responsible, but you also know how to be light-hearted, spontaneous, and maybe even a bit goofy. Bonus points if you can make me laugh.

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