My self-summary
Not Just Another Scarf-Wearing Brooklyn Writer Type, We Can Only Hope!

Affectionate, emphatic. Ideal state is trading neck rubs and lounging in the sun. I love summer, books, books, books, afternoon runs, fresh cut flowers, resplendent morning routines, cinnamon, eye contact, and losing track of time.
What I’m doing with my life
Just finished my Fiction MFA, trying to stay active in ~the literary community~ as well as in ye olde word document with my novel in it. I work on the marketing team for one of the city's parks & get to spend my days rallying behind such key initiatives as "the time is now for more emoji from institutional Instagram accounts." You're welcome!
I’m really good at
- Playlists for Any Occasion
~ Analyzing literature :) /:(
- Well, not karaoke but man do I make up with that with enthusiasm

Also: Animals of all sorts seem to like me a lot for no reason. Sometimes I wish my life was a Great Meaningful Narrative so that I could take this as a sign of my intrinsic goodness (e.g. St. Francis of Assisi, Cinderella)

(Other times I wish my life was a Great Meaningful Narrative for more, like, straightforward epistemological reasons.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
one hundred years of solitude, war and peace, tender is the night, the liar's club, the family mashber, herzog (the bellow novel), moby dick, middlemarch, the corrections, sabbath's theater, I capture the castle, the wind-up bird chronicle, brideshead revisited, the department of speculation, 10:04.

Lately: Elena Ferrante all night and all day.

wizard people dear reader, big fish, north by northwest, silence of the lambs, clueless, vertigo

the wire, game of thrones, how to get away with murder, scandal, nashville, pretty little liars (unabashed)

okkervil river, shearwater, belle and sebastian, the hold steady, whatever jenny lewis touches, old 97's, the national, the mountain goats, frightened rabbit, joanna newsom, silver jews, voxtrot, spoon, wilco. others. slow jams from the 00's? soft spot for the boss.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My one peripheral brush with internet fame came from puking twice in my friend's Camry.

You should message me if
When we meet, you think we'll have one of those conversations that's warm, fun and generative, that effortlessly transforms us into our most charming, articulate selves, that leaves us three drinks deep, suddenly shocked that it's midnight.

I mean, contact me if you think we might connect.
