My self-summary
I keep wanting to answer this with a comment about being happy to be back in NY after five years away. Even though it's been over a year, I'm still just really happy to be back.

I missed the subway, walking, Theater(both musical and not), generally not being in a car, good chinese food!

The west coast made me love hiking and camping. Now I'm looking forward to finding those things in NY, too. Unfortunately my friends here aren't as into it, so I'll need to make new buddies for that. Interested?

In an effort to get more active and be outside, I signed up for my first triathlon this spring and having be loving (and sometimes cursing) the training process. The goal for the first one is to just finish then set a time goal for round two. We'll see how it goes.
What I’m doing with my life
TV production turned into a volunteer communications position at an NGO in the Carribean turned into a new job bringing volunteer groups into homeless shelters to offer support, skill building, fitness classes and of course celebrations too.

I've lived a couple lives already. But I'm ready to commit to this one now.
I’m really good at
- laughing at inappropriate times
- sarcasm
- listening (comes in handy)
- recalling super random TV trivia
- planning activities despite
- procrastination tendencies.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes are a bright blue.

...and my face tends to say more than I intended to express. Sometimes fun, sometimes not ideal.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I hate this question. I never feel like I can cover all my bases. So here's a random selection.
book - Moloka'i by Alan Brennert
movie - whip it
shows - shameless
music - lennon and maisy covers
food - cold sesame noodles
The six things I could never do without
Coffee, friends, ocean, books, travel, YouTube. And beer. (That's 7 but who's counting.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Settling down in NY. Finding an apartment with lots of light and getting a dog. A very cute one. And where I should go on my next trip.
On a typical Friday night I am
Enjoying time with friends - either dinner, drinks, a show, anything.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ask me later. Preferably after a couple of beers.
You should message me if
you're interested in taking a chance on a stranger. it could be fun.
