Live in Queens, the most diverse place on the planet. In Astoria 14 years, Pittsburgh for 4 before that (another great, though sorely underated, city).
Love all 5 boros, but I am Queens-proud (in NYC, it's the ugly duckling, but that just means it has a low smug factor and that others haven't taken a closer look).
Love travel, arts, Dr. Who, pounding pavement, my nieces and nephews.
Love cooking, esp. discovering new-to-me veggies; love eating out, esp. small ethnic restaurants and adventurous, word-of-mouth spots.
Fan of Gothem GIrls Roller derby, good typography, split infinitives, bowling, jazz, Coney Island, free shakespeare, groupo corpo & their ilk. Interested in user experience design.
