About me

Gender FEMALE
Industry Publishing
Location Brooklyn, New York, United States
Introduction In college, after I realized I would never make any money (or never make it) as an actress, I decided to pursue English instead. Ahaha. I wanted to move to New York before Cosmos were cool.I went to grad school for literature, and I still have a hard time remembering whether it's Master's Degree, master's degree, or Master's degree, and I have the student loans to prove it:). Ah, I wrote a food column (ish) for about a year for a newspaper in Charlotte, and voilĂ . I am in NY/NJ. I work for a book publisher, and I am a culinary publicist. I mention to someone at least once a day that I want a dog, I miss my car, and "one day...one day..one day.." is a phrase I seem to say a lot. I love yoga, and I love it when yoga teachers say things like "be fierce." I drink at least one or two margaritas a week and bagels and ice cream are my biggest weakness. I have been told I have terrible taste in music, but I think it's improving somewhat.Maybe one day, (one day...I told you), I will move back to the south and open up my North Carolina version of Beacon's Closet. Until then,I am happy turning corners in New York and never knowing what I will find.
Interests Doing whatever I want. oh. That's not an interest? Arrested Development, 90210, Sex and the City, Lost (just recently. And watching it is the only thing I want to do..)writing, reading, cooking, eating...
