My self-summary
In grad school part-time for urban policy & planning, and running a non-profit im passion about. I like to grow, cook and eat food. I'm hardly ever in a bad mood, but you don't want to cross me when I'm hungry. Before moving to Boston 4 years ago I lived on the Cape for several years. I miss the ocean, but love the accessibility of a city and not needing to rely on a car for transportation.

Things you may not know about me:
-I've made my own cheez-its from scratch
-I've gone on two 300+ miles bike rides to raise money and awareness for climate change and bike advocacy, two things I care deeply about (and about to go on a third...)
-I had my 5 minutes of fame as a 6 year old on the Bozo Show (had another 5 minutes a few summers ago when something weird happened to me, but that's a longer story...)
What I’m doing with my life
I'm driven personally and professionally by community health, social and environmental justice, transportation and urban planning. I love playing my ukulele. I don't claim to be great by any means, but am always looking for people to jam with.
I’m really good at
Going through yellow lights.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm pretty much always laughing. I've been told it's infectious... so watch out!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Persepolis, Just Mercy, Tender at the Bone, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, Wild Sheep Chase...anything by David Sedaris, Lemony Snickett or Barbara Kingsolver.

Wet Hot American Summer, Princess Bride, Zoolander, A Series of Unfortunate Events, Shawshank Redemption, The Fugitive.

The Head and the Heart, Langhorne Slim, Beirut, Dawes, Buffalo Tom, The New Pornographers, Mika... and I appreciate all live music, especially bluegrass, blues and jazz. My rule is if a band has a banjo or upright bass I know I'm going to love them.

The Wire, Transparent, Kimmy Schmidt (season 2!), 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, Veronica Mars, Six Feet Under, Freaks and Geeks, My So-Called Life. I also recently took a day-long staycation to watch the second half of the first season of Stranger Things. I couldn't stop, it was so good.

I love food, and have a newfound obsession with ramen.
Six things I could never do without
a breakfast sandwich and morning coffee
Two Dope Queens podcast
live music
ice cream (Toscanini's, obviously)
my bike
On a typical Friday night I am
Always doing something. Live music, cooking a delicious meal, ending the week at yoga for stress release, catching up with someone over drinks, firing up the grill with my roommates, some sort of nighttime bike adventure, getting ice cream.... and maybe, just maybe, at home reading a book (though usually too restless)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I always walk the hypotnuse. (Who wouldn't want to take the shortest distance between a and b?)
You should message me if
You want to adventure within, about and outside of Boston. You want to join me going places by bike, because nighttime riding is more fun in pairs. You like to eat delicious food, and appreciate vegetables (and pork - my new love!). You want to play a game of cribbage, maybe at a bar.
The two of us
