I love movies, headphones, and cheeseburgers. I'm an optimist in denial. Listening to "Planet Money", "You Made It Weird", and "This American Life" can make me smile under almost any circumstances. Just to say I could, I once licked the Eiffel Tower. I most definitely am a morning person. I'm also a narcissist in denial. Listening to podcasts at the gym is my way of busting stress. I love making jokes almost as much as I love going to shows. The wait between sets is so exhilarating. I love technology, old and new. Watching a live comedy show come together is probably the coolest thing ever. I've been to many places around the world. I love exploring new places. I'm really into business and also how 'funny' works. I love trying new foods and I get overly excited about making my workout schedule. I'm easily distracted by shiny, new gadgets. ENFJ
