My self-summary
Coffee: Black
Beer: Fancy
Food: Animal-less
Laughs: Loudly

I try to live a life of balance. The first to laugh and the last to lash out in anger. Talks to strangers. Sense of humor in the 95th percentile.

Possesses the soul of an artist (still developing the talent to go with it). I offer equal parts encouragement and teasing to the friends who can take it.

Trying to live my life as if the future is infinite and anything is possible.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, pursuing an MBA, writing, Bikesharing.

When I can find the time: hiking, biking, running, jumping, climbing trees
I’m really good at
Questioning everything. Making you say, "I never thought about it that way before."

Finding the humor in any situation and helping you see it too.

Teaching my faculty how to make guns out of bananas. #RealAmericanHero
The first things people usually notice about me
People say that I am sarcastic, but people are wrong. I appreciate genuineness, but I enjoy a woman who can throw a little sass in my direction.

UPDATE! I actually am sarcastic.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Kanye West. Business school makes me listen to Rage Against the Machine and Run the Jewels on infinite loop.

Movies: Pulp Fiction (romance, action, and comedy in one perfectly paced package)

TV: Archer for profane comedy. Deadwood for the sublime performance of Ian McShane. Sense8 for its racially and sexually diverse cast.

Podcasts: This American Life, The Gist, Serial, Slate Political Gabfest, Pop Culture Happy Hour, Invisibilia, Stuff You Should Know, Lexicon Valley

Comics: Saga by Brian K. Vaughan (the most endearing thing I've ever read)
The six things I could never do without
John Oliver
Capital Bikeshare membership
Stovetop Espresso Maker
Warm beds in cold rooms
Wolverine claws
I spend a lot of time thinking about
In no particular order...

Why isn't there an overly complex German word to express the concept of "fighting words that are really flirting words?" Please chime in if you're good with portmanteaus.

Higher education and online learning, the origins of religion, why it took me 28 years to combine bananas and peanut butter.

If beards are just make-up for men.

Would I prefer to be known for being funny or profound?

Does the language of social justice advance the *cause* of social justice?
On a typical Friday night I am
Catching a random live concert, happy hour, on a Netflix binge, or curled up with good book. Jazz in the Garden. Sneaking in the workouts that I meant to get in earlier in the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I'm alone I talk/sing to myself like Jean Ralphio. I'm the wooOOoorst.

I lied about having Wolverine claws and I have strong opinions about belts.
You should message me if
You're not looking for a partner in crime; you're looking for a partner. I'm looking for something real.

(We can still commit crimes on the side.)

You are a confident woman who can conquer the world, but who also likes to sleep in and eat waffles.

You say "yes". Ira Glass is your hero. You want to join my Oregon Trail party and promise not to die of dysentery.
