Disclaimer- These OKCupid questions make me batty; I don't think things are always yes or no, black or white, one or the other. There are too many things in-between. A good conversation proves best to navigate it all.

If you're a couple, please do not contact me. If you don't understand why it might be offensive, then Definitely don't contact me. Thanks! ::grumble::
What I’m doing with my life
Grad School- writing.
Published author, ghostwriter, single puppy mom [ha], retired my consultancy for marketing + brand development and an online publication to get back to writingggggg #gratitude
I’m really good at
Making people laugh, laughing, writing, connecting people, swimming, networking, learning, cooking now and then, finding great restaurants, both under and over estimating myself, kissing, spooning, wondering what else I should be writing that I'm not, thoughtful gifts that you didn't see coming, sleeping in/ staying up passed by bedtime, befriending dogs, chatting people up at parties, throwing dinner parties, watching movies, the JetBlue flight to LA (mastered it).
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair, freckles (at least in the summer here in NYC), gap, and people often try to figure out 'where I'm from/ my ethnic background', which is, as with any American, often all of the guesses, ha. Anything else? You tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A multitude of poets, all of whom aren't in any one book; I would be happy to nerd out over them if that's your jam, but I know it's not everyone's :). Love Frida Kahlo, Sally Mann, Lucille Clifton, Jean Michel Basquiat, Georgia O'Keef , good street art in general etc.

Shows- True Detective!! Ah!, Parks and Rec, The Wire, The Wire, Game of Thrones, Dexter, The Wire, Breaking Bad, True Blood (I know), House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Friday Night Lights, more I can't think of right now oh The Wire...

Huge movie buff, too many to list completely but I will say I Have a soft spot for terrible action movies (its like comfort food) and LOVE Will Farrell/ slapstick ridiculous humor. Yessss. Otherwise here are a few-
Gladiator, The Constant Gardner, Great Expectations, CQ, The Adventures of Baron Munchousen (sp?), The Departed, Rear Window, Lord of the Rings (obvi), The Place Beyond The Pines, Royal Tenennbaums, Life Aquatic, The Fighter, Anchorman, Gone Baby Gone, The Secret of Roan Inish, The Reader, Talladega Nights, Hook and on and on...

Food- Love pasta, sushi, good Mexican, most things with garlic or chocolate [but not together]
Six things I could never do without
Hope, spell check, my puppy Zora, storytelling, folklore, mythology, good motorcycle boots or flip flops, Free Flight, love, sunshine, laughter, ice lattes, buddy Bill, friends and family, the sea, hugs, space, optimism, art, music, the hope of DTs impeachment, ignoring rules/suggestions, making lists past 6
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How effing good this is and how I want more! http://www.superstarmagazine.com/this-is-how-beyonces-drunk-in-love-would-sound-in-the-1940s/
How much I need a massage/vacation // Gratitude for all that I do have.
What I should be writing.
Obsessively editing what I am writing.
Chocolate. Because duh.
What I want to be when I grow up.
What time it is.
How can I bring a spirit of positivity and service into daily life.
How to overthrow the current administration/ how retreat and live self sustainably on a farm ::sigh::
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing something mellow with friends or at home. Usually pretty beat from the work week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have watched the entirety of The Wire- twice. That's right.

Most the swag is sass, then it just gets terribly bashful... So don't dish it if you can't take it but then really let's hug it out because I'm always only teasing ;)
You should message me if
You really want to meet someone.
You're funny, thoughtful, available + open minded.
You laugh a lot/ are goofy as hell.
You want to meet in person.
You invented the Piano Key Necktie.
You give great massages (I had to try, right?)

You just should. Quit yer stallin
