About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Eat things. Laugh. Dance. Be surprised.

ABOUT ME

My friends would say I'm quirky, spontaneous, energetic, sarcastic, HILARIOUS, and then all kinds of sweet things about my loyalty, compassion, and awesome bread pudding, and then someone would probably mention the high frequency of costume parties and my obsessions with whisky and Abraham Lincoln...preferably costume parties where we're all dressed like Abe, drinking whisky. I am predictably unpredictable. In the best possible way.

Interests

I love art, music, movies, books, pretty much anything showcasing original thought and creativity. I love doing quiet at-home things and then big outrageous group things. And I am a sucker for anything beautiful, very broadly defined. And cheese. I love cheese.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: Amelie, The Station Agent, Moonrise Kingdom, Safety Not Guaranteed, Lars and the Real Girl, The Chorus Music: They Might Be Giants, Snow Patrol, Postal Service, Cake, Fun., Florence + the Machine, Muse, U2 Books: anything by Kurt Vonnegut, Jonathan Tropper, Barbara Kingsolver, Willa Cather, LM Montgomery, CS Lewis, Dean Koontz, Jane Austen, the Brontes. I LOVE to read.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I was awestruck in a tragic way when I went to Zambia and looked around and realized there were no old people anywhere. Life expectancy is around 35. That just broke me down.
