To you, right now, I’m just some lady with a lot of videos of animals, writing into the void. I’d like to think I’m more than that. One of my favorite ways to get to know someone is by asking short, quick-fire questions. The questions are often random, sometimes not pertinent, but it’s an easy way to get to know someone a bit and break the ice (and also a quick way to tell if I’ll scare them off). Got more questions for me? Leave them in the comments!
What do you do for money?
Video production for a non profit.
What do you do for you?
Spend time with animals, craft, bake, drink whisky, and DIY things.
What did you want to be when you were a kid?
You walk into Sephora-where do you go first?
Whichever stand is offering a new type of lipstick.
My last meal would be…
My nana's Mac and cheese, pulled pork sandwich, corn on the cob, and probably a piece of cornbread for good measure. And throw in some peanut butter pie for dessert.
Own any pets?
Two cats: Finn and Oscar.
Where do you live?
South Slope, Brooklyn
I'm afraid of…
Snakes and Sharks.
What's your number one, can't live without beauty product?
Carmex lip balm-there's always a tube or jar within reach of my hand.
Doughnuts or cupcakes?
What are five things you refuse to live without (and don't say your phone)?
Coffee, pets, hot showers, best friends, a way to listen to music
What's your dream vacation?
Somewhere quiet, local flair, full sky of stars at night, hot but not too humid, epic beauty. Where's that?
Who is your role model?
I don't have one. I believe we should aspire to be the best versions of ourselves, not someone else.
What's your favorite thing about yourself?
I consider myself a pretty self-sufficient, independent person. I'm ridiculously proud of myself for that fact.
What's your biggest insecurity?
The allergy on my hands.
What qualities do you value in your friends?
Honesty, deep love, hard-working. That last one sounds lame, but seriously, every one of my friends is working so damn hard, and it's inspiring and says great things about character.
Why New York?
I work in video production, so NYC felt like the natural place to do that. It's the city where things happen, right? Oh and driving gives me massive anxiety.
If not nyc where would you live?
Another city, but smaller. Somewhere that felt different, but home.
Favorite book of all time?
Let's go with Delicate Edible Birds or Where'd You Go, Bernadette?
If you were a cartoon what would your outfit be?
A black romper, boots, sunglasses.
I can't say that this is the absolute number one, but Fiona Apple's "The Idler Wheel..." is one of my favorites. And Ray Lamontagne's "Trouble." And I've lately been listening to a lot of Bluegrass and Jazz.
What makes you happy?
Friends, animals, music, a beautiful day at the beach.
