My self-summary
I love to laugh--at myself as much as at others. I believe in social justice and radical tolerance, so I do take some things seriously, but I tend to dwell on the brighter side of life. Happiness is a choice after all.

My passion is writing. I'm currently working on a young adult novel, and I am lucky enough to have a great job where I am surrounded by creative people while I work on it. When I am not working (or writing) I'm always trying to learn something new, whether it's how to knit a blanket, make the perfect bolognese or use an SLR camera.

I am sort of a foodie, but I can also enjoy a good beer and a burger. I love to bike and swim and just in general move, but I always make time to read and catch a favorite show. I love to explore our beautiful city, but I would also love to stay in with that special person.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in education and I write in my free time. Ideally at a certain point I will be able to support myself solely through writing.
I’m really good at
cooking and fixing things. I'm the youngest of seven and I think the only way my parents could handle so many kids was to teach us all to be useful and self-sufficient.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my hair. It's nonstop awesome.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Harry Potter Books, Holes, A Walk to Remember, The Princess Bride, The Stephanie Plum Books, Road to Memphis, The Great Fire, Lord of the Rings

Movies: Primal Fear, Before Sunrise, Independence Day (really any disaster movies, but that's my favorite), Lord of the Rings Trilogy

Shows: Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock, West Wing (still), Arrested Development, Firefly, In Plain Sight, Grey's Anatomy
Six things I could never do without
-A book (whichever one I'm reading)
-My family
-My friends
-My music
-My computer
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sometimes I think about irreverent things like Zombies. I'm 99.9% certain that a zombie apocalypse is an impossibility, but that .1% keeps me up nights. Mostly, I think about more practical things like how I can get the characters of my story to do what I want or how I can have a positive impact on the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
at the movies or at a bar with friends.
You should message me if
-You're nice and fun, and you like other nice and fun people
