Originally from Ohio and moved to NYC after graduating college. I would consider myself a midwest girl, with a shot of manhattan energy and mindset (re: I talk quickly). I started out in the UES in 2007 and as I've matured, discovered I am a downtown, specifically soho type of girl, where I have settled for the past three years. It is one of the few neighborhoods in NYC that has a true sense of community, which I am fortunate to be a part of.
I am career-focused and constantly enjoying the challenges and learning experiences my job provides. I work on Wall Street most of the time, but also travel across the US occasionally for work trips. I take advantage of NYC as much as I can and try to never take it for granted. Of all the cities I have visited around thew world, I have never met a city I've enjoyed more. My newest discovery/obsession has been the tenement museum.
My family is extremely important to me. I have a twin sister, and two younger siblings and since we are all over the US, travel frequently to see them. The last trip I took with my sister was to England, which included an ad hoc overnight trip to Paris where our only mission, to go up the Eiffel tower, was spoiled when we didn't have enough time to wait in line before heading back to the airport. One day...
My friends (after inquiring) would describe me as a "fire cracker".
My favorite band is Lifehouse (most played song of 2001) and have seen them over 35 times with my first concert March 5, 2001
I have missed more flights in my life than I think most people have flown
I love investing in the stock market and my best stock pick was Airtran which was bought by Southwest in Sept/Oct 2010
I have many more worst stock picks than best stock picks ;)
My apartment is quite smaller than Bloombergs proposed "micro-apartments"
I did not like "The Hangover" and find Zack Galifanakis a little (okay a lot) revolting
My car of choice would be a white Fiat 500. If I had one, BPM would be playing with the windows down
I was anti-foodies for a very long time...until I realized I was one (the "epiphany" moment was over a year ago so I've had time to adjust)
