The one thing I am passionate about...
One of my biggest passions is music--listening to and discovering it, not playing or singing it (I definitely don't have the voice). Live concerts put me in the best mood, and I just love the energy of an artist interacting with the crowd. Another passion of mine is writing, and I put it to good use as a freelancer. I was a creative writing major in college and I'm slowly inching back into that outside of my day job.
I typically spend my leisure time
As I mentioned earlier, my favorite way to spend free time is attending concerts. Some of my favorite musicians include The Beatles, James Taylor, John Mayer and Matt Nathanson. Obviously I�m a big fan of singer-songwriters, but I also love a lot of classic rock and I�ve gotten into the blues a bit, too. I also frequently enjoy going to comedy clubs because it�s fun to laugh so hard that my face and stomach hurt afterwards. I try to attend at least one game at Yankee Stadium a season, and I'm a Rangers fan by blood.
The most influential person in my life has been
Kindness, because it usually brings patience, understanding and humor along with it.
The first thing people notice about me
My sarcasm & wit -- I can be pretty quick on the draw.
The last book I read and enjoyed
A friend gave me a copy of "The Alchemist" as a gift when she knew I was having a rough time. I read it pretty quickly and found it to be well-written, helpful, and inspiring.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family because they've been there for me every step of the way and have helped shape me into who I am today.
- My friends because they're the family I choose for myself. Collectively, they're hilarious, insightful, comforting and a blast to be with.
- Music, both live and recorded.

A little more about me
In the spirit of absolute and complete honesty, I have a mild physical challenge that affects my walking/balance. It's generally not a big deal, and it can have its perks like boarding planes first and getting VIP seats at general admission concerts, but I might as well put it out there because it's not something that should or can be hidden & if the idea of it doesn't fluster you, that's awesome.
