What I’m doing with my life
I work as an editor at a publishing house (I edit grammar books and dictionaries - true story, best job) and I'm soon to be a master's student.

Music is my thing, so I play a couple of instruments and I'm a singer-songwriter (soundcloud: http://tinyurl.com/o2fva6h). I basically split my time between working with music and with language, so... it's a pretty good life! I also hold a series of odd side jobs like - hosting a popular bi-weekly podcast and editing movie subtitles for a content company. That's right; I get paid to watch movies. *hi-five* :)
I’m really good at
music-al things. It's my happy place.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have great hair. It's hard to miss.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books that I often go back to: Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Kafka On The Shore by Haruki Murakami, White Teeth by Zadie Smith, God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy, On Love by Alain de Botton, Sophie's World by Jostein Gaarder, Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera, The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, Harry Potter. I could go on. And I kind of will - Poets: Peter Meinke, Charles Bukowski, Dom Moraes, Anis Mojgani.

TV Shows: I re-watch Buffy The Vampire Slayer way too often, GoT, House of Cards, Orange is The New Black, Louie, The Daily Show, Gilmore Girls.

Music: Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, Mirah, Regina Spektor, Fiona Apple, Sylvan Esso, Extreme, AR Rahman, Amit Trivedi, Sneha Khanwalkar, Florence And The Machine, Incubus, Toshi Reagon, Ani Difranco.
The six things I could never do without
an audience, a musical instrument, a journal, my kindle, sturdy shoes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
where I'm headed. What kind of a person/life is every decision adding up to?
On a typical Friday night I am
doing the typical Friday night thing, fervently wishing for an atypical Friday night.

(That's why we're all here, right?)
You should message me if
you're brave. if you're restless. if you're kind - that's an important one. if you're pretentious as fuck and you own it.
