My self-summary
Currently have: one amazing, loving boyfriend.

Currently seeking: awesome female friends who love sarcasm and wine. Could it be you??


When I was a kid my dad always used to tell me that the possibilities were endless. Now I've realized that the only thing that is truly endless is graduate school... so I left.

Obligatory shoutout to the places I've lived before coming to LA: Philadelphia, suburban New Jersey, Berkeley, Austin and a magical summer getting lost in Rome and ordering many 'uno piccolo gelato'.
What I’m doing with my life
Writing, baking with whatever I can find in my kitchen (sweet potato cookies were a hit), singing in the shower, reading reading reading (fiction, non fiction, ALL THE THINGS), hiking, ballet, running & yoga.
I’m really good at
I've been skiing since before I was able to walk, courtesy of a baby backpack and carefree parents. Since then I've usually been able to make it out a few times a year and just tried snowboarding for the first time this past winter.

I can usually tell you +/- 20 years when a building was constructed. This is a cool/impressive trick to do while bar hopping but otherwise not super useful.

Ballet made me good at walking on my toes, now it's handy for reaching things on the top shelf and tricking people into thinking I'm taller than I really am.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'd like to say it's my grace and charm, but popular opinion says "hipster" glasses and goofy grin.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Bill Bryson, Junot Diaz, Cormac McCarthy, Virginia Woolf, Ernest Hemmingway, Jhumpa Lahiri, Stieg Larsson, Victor Hugo, Neil Gaiman, David Foster Wallace.

Cabin in the Woods, 10 Things I Hate About You, Elizabethtown, Stranger than Fiction, The Hurt Locker, Waitress, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Back to the future

Downton Abbey, Lost, True Blood, 30 Rock, HIMYM, Mad Men, Game of Thrones.

Ben Folds, The Tallest Man on Earth, Josh Ritter, Macklemore+Ryan Lewis, Iron and Wine, Incubus, Joshua Radin, Matt Costa, folksy music.

Vegan brunch is my religion.
Six things I could never do without
1. Tea. I can't start my day without at least two cups (one with breakfast, one to go, then maybe two more at work.. whoops, now I'm shaking, too much tea!),

2. Books, both the ones I need for my research and the fiction that keeps me sane (currently reading Jane Austen, "Sense and Sensibility" ; if you ask I'll link you to my goodreads profile),

3. Space heater, since my housemate is almost never cold enough to turn the heat on I'm fairly certain I'd be a frozen block of ice right now without it,

4. Letters of Note (especially this: http://www.lettersofnote.com/2012/01/nothing-good-gets-away.html) and other great blogs,

5. My metal water bottle. Also my fancy reusable Tupperware. Saving the environment one packed lunch at a time.

6. Pillows. Lots and lots and lots of pillows.

BONUS: good friends and witty banter.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The taste of chocolate disgusts me, which is a bit of a bummer around the holidays.
You should message me if
You're witty with a touch of sarcasm, adventurous, and can take (and dish out) a good joke.
The two of us
