My self-summary
Well let's see...I'm a very passionate and strong-willed individual, so that's number one. I love and appreciate all things creative: music, art, theater, film etc. I'm passionate about storytelling in general. I try to stay up on current events and politics. I often have strong opinions that I'm not shy about sharing or standing up for. I try to approach things with a positive, yet realistic outlook. I'm pretty open-minded and will listen to other peoples opinions on anything and everything, but I will never back down for what I feel is right. I thrive on a good, well thought debate. My parents keep saying I should be a lawyer, but I honestly don't think I could deal with the system at this rate. It might eat at my soul...

Anyway! I value conversation on all levels in this ever so detached digital age. I'm also technically a transplant from Southern New Jersey, but I've been in the area for the better part of 10 years which means I do remember where things "used to be" that makes me a true Rhode Islander now, right?
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working in the arts and its my passion. I tend to work even when I'm not actually at work, whether it be on an independent project or toying with creative ideas for the future. Everything relates to one another so I consider it to be a part of a larger "lifestyle", if you will. It's been an interesting professional journey, but I love what I do. I go to theater often, try to go to live music events, museums etc. when I can and I'm always on the lookout for something offbeat and creatively cool or unique.

I garden in the spring/summer though this year was kind of a bust. Baseball is my favorite of all the sports and I try to get to games when I can. I also love college basketball and NFL football. Main allegiances: Phillies, Red Sox, URI and A10 teams, and the Iggles for football.

And of course I engage in Netflix and couch potato-ing per the norm it seems. I just enjoy good company, quality entertainment and storytelling.
I’m really good at
Reading people, speaking my mind (maybe too much so...), laughing really loudly and sometimes a little obnoxiously, offering moral support and encouragement. I like to think I'm relatively business savvy as I tend to be very practical and diplomatic. I really value honesty so I consider that to be a talent I guess.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I am a strong, yet feminine, woman. My hair is pretty hard to miss in a crowded room, sometimes people notice my voice, my smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Films: The Godfather I and II, Love Actually, The Big Chill, the original Arthur with Dudley Moore, Pulp Fiction, Goodfellas, Gone With the Wind, Defending Your Life, 12 Angry Men, The Birdcage, A League of Their Own, JFK, Moneyball, Wolf of Wall Street. I can be a sucker for tear jerkers and love stories like Beaches or the Imitation of Life. I've been really getting into documentaries and I'll watch documentaries about almost anything.

TV: Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Ricky Gervais Show, Parks and Rec, Key and Peele, House of Cards, South Park, American Dad, Family Guy, Soap. Making a Murderer was insane. If you've seen it, you should message me because I cannot stop talking about it.

I tend to read historical non-fiction or non-fiction in general. Biographies and autobiographies. My Dad gave me a book called Legacy of Secrecy recently, so I'm just delving into that in addition to a book called Deep State by Peter Dale Scott. I also read a LOT of plays, my favorite is Eurydice by Sarah Ruhl. I also love King Lear, Much Ado About Nothing as my favorite Shakespeare's.

I listen to a lot of stuff my Dad listened to when I was growing up in addition to personal finds over the years. Lately its been Fleetwood Mac, The Black Keys, Ben Folds, Beck, Cake, Johnny Cash, The Beach Boys, The Beatles, Junior Senior, and Simon and Garfunkel (maybe a little Whitney Houston, Madonna and Kelly...as in Clarkson. Kelly is my Beyonce). I'm always looking to be introduced to new bands or "artists".

Lasagna, Korean, Thai, I love trying new food...correction, I love food in general. I also really enjoy baking. I have a nice garden in my backyard now too which has been nice for making my own tomato sauce and pickles.
The six things I could never do without
pen/paper, laughter, a pillow of some kind, human contact, my eyesight (however impaired it may be), possibly baseball...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, happiness and what makes people happy. Society and how it can be better, how we can be better people. I'm constantly thinking about subtext. Subtext and non-verbal communication is fascinating.
On a typical Friday night I am
hanging out...whether with friends somewhere or at home watching baseball, movies, tv or somewhere somewhat stimulating. The location is less important than the company.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There isn't much I don't admit to, some things more openly than others. I'm a pretty honest person. If you want to know: ask.
You should message me if
You'd like to have a fun and interesting conversation with a relatively normal human being.
