what’s your superpower?

I happen to be a customer service savant. This wangling trait runs in the family, and comes in handy in situations like: changing a reservation, ordering after the kitchen is closed, getting into something that’s for sure sold out, etc etc

One of my best moves is getting out of the $200 airline change fee when I need to switch a flight. Let’s just say, pretending like you’re from the same hometown as the customer service rep goes a long, long way. Sometimes it goes so well that we later become pen pals over email.

what was your most iconic nyc moment?

When I was 15, I unknowingly spent the entire summer selling stolen bicycles at the Brooklyn Flea Market. 

My boss (Eddy) was an older guy with bad knees and a hard time test riding the bikes with interested customers. As a spritely teenager, I was the Yin to Eddy’s Yang, and he recruited me as his sidekick after I purchased a bike from him.

The fun came crashing down one day in late August when I asked him where we got all our bicycle inventory. He gave me a trusting smile, and then proceeded to tell me that all the bikes were stolen from Philadelphia. 

He had his operation here in NYC, and also a like minded friend in Philly. They’d switch “inventories” each week so no one could find their stolen bicycle at the city’s local flea. 

I was heartbroken to learn that I had been an unknowing accomplice to a crime for months. That said, it was also my first exposure to the idea of entrepreneurship and it made a lasting impression. 

I’ve started two businesses in my life, and am currently working on a third through MIT’s DesignX accelerator. Does anyone in Philadelphia want to trade bicycles?

😈 what’s your toxic trait?

I get really into birthday gifts, April fools pranks, surprise parties, etc. For example, I once “rented” a chinchilla from a pet store as part of the presentation of a gift. 

I also once set up a fake New Yorker interview to convince my friend that he was in an article running about young tech “disruptors” in NYC. The interview went on for almost two hours before I broke it to him that it was fake. 

Bottom line, I will put friendships, professional contacts, romantic relationships, and the well-being of small woodland creatures on the line for a memorable story. This has, at times, gotten me into trouble.

🥵 what makes you hot?

  • Recently became a Suffolk county volunteer firefighter. Will climb any tree if a cat is in danger

  • I used to be an NYC tour guide and know a weird amount of useless fun facts 

  • Really good at ordering for the table 

  • Three time chili cookoff champion (with a completely vegetarian chili no less)

  • Big fan of my mom, can generally be found at her apt on Sunday evenings for dinner

🔎 who are you looking for?

I’m looking for a woman who’s up for new experiences, curious, and motivated. Has strong opinions, but not necessarily my own. Positive/optimistic. Thinks I’m funny, I think they’re funny. Can tear up a dance floor.
