Filmmaking! That's my passion.
Corporate Lawyer.
To the guys cradling small furry animals in their OkC profile pictures: I see what you did there. Well played.
Played volleyball in college and overseas, until my shoulder decided it was done. So it goes.
I need structure, but dread routine. It shuts me down.
I used to throw impromptu solo dance parties whenever I became too boring and serious. But somewhere along the way I aged out of those shenanigans. Bringing them back.
Born and raised in Orange County, CA.
Studied abroad at Oxford. One word: Hogwarts.

I will live in London at some point before I die. Oslo would be nice too.
SkyMall is underrated.
I have a hate-hate relationship with the word "should."

And those little leaflets that fall out of magazines when you pick them up to browse at the store.
"Oops" is better than "what if"
I'm an only child. This may shed light on most things.

Glüwein. It warms the soul and tastes like Christmas.
The six things I could never do without
1) my fam
2) something to look forward to
3) a day completely to myself to recharge
4) a creative outlet
5) yoga pants
6) the ability to laugh at myself
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- Story nuggets. Jot them down whenever I hear, see or think of one. There are so many out there waiting to be told.

- My original Gameboy, and why/how/when it went missing. 97% sure it involved my mother, a cardboard box, and Goodwill. 8 years later, it still hurts.

- A bluegrass-hip-hop compilation.

- The next step.
On a typical Friday night I am
not tottering in heels outside da clurb*.

*Note: Not to be confused with dance parties. Those are awesome. Especially impromptu ones.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
- "Mars Attacks" gave me nightmares as a child, and unsettles me to this day.

- Once upon a time, in the Land Before Facebook, pictures were taken. Pictures with horizontal peace signs, pouty lips,
and heads tilted jauntily to the side. Any and all evidence of said pictures has since been destroyed.

... I could say they were taken ironically, but that would be a lie.
I would say "don't judge," but I fully expect judgment here.

- I'd probably be sorted into Slytherin.
You should message me if
1) You are one of "the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, who never yawn or say a commonplace thing but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles."

2) One of your photos is a shirtless selfie taken in front of a mirror.

3) #3 in "What I'm doing with my life" made you want to vomit a little bit.

4) You don't own anything that cleverly misappropriates Britain's WWII mantra.

5) Social media slightly overwhelms you too.
