How do you take your coffee?

Almond milk and sugar - I like it light and sweet.

Bike, walk, train, or drive?

Walk and bike as much as possible! I love my city cruiser to get around town, but walking makes me feel more connected to the city I love.

Favorite Northside hangout?

Big Chicks/Tweet! I love the crowd, atmosphere, management, food and the events. What more could one need?

What’s your ideal road trip?

My ideal road trip would take me West through the plains and then the mountains. Add some camping/hiking gear, a killer mix of 90's pop with contemporary indie and I've got a vacation!

What drives you?

My family and friends. These people mean more to me than anything else. They make me want to do more and be better. I know, its cheesy, but what else is there to live for?

Why Chicago?

I originally moved here to work in the theater scene, though I'm slowly phasing out of that. But since I moved here five year ago I have fallen in love with it. Always something to do and different places to explore. I still have a lot on my Chicago bucket list.

Can’t live without…

Persian food. Check out Noon-O-Kabob or Kabobi on Kedzie. You won't regret it.

Do you have a four-legged roommate? Tell us about him/her

I do! His name is Bugger. He is half chihuahua/half shit zhu and all sad faces. Seriously. He has resting emo face (REF) and everyone falls for it. He loves laying around the house and snatching up people food anywhere he can get it.

Morning routine? ( in 3’s) Wake up, Brush teeth, eat breakfast

Wake up. Snooze. Repeat.

Favorite tchotchke?

Violet.

What would your Tinder profile say?

Tinder?! Isn't that for straight people?

Define your style?

My style probably a casual hipster. Some days its sneakers and some khaki shorts with a star trek T. Other days its floral print shorts, chucks and a dark button-up.

What would your punk band name be?

Fuchsia Scars.

Hashtag yourself.

I Jam Out to…

Lately, it's been the "Feel Good Indie" playlist on Spotify! The Wombats - Give me a Try, MisterWives - Reflection, Prides - Messiah... also some of the newer house music, Alex Newel & Matvey Emerson - Show Me Love, Blonde - I Loved You (feat. Melissa Steel). Add Dolly Parton to this and you've got my varied tastes.

If I am not at home, you can find me here.

The roof! Especially lately - the sky has been spectacular.

Random fact?

I have never broken a bone. I've had plenty of opportunities to do so! ::knocks on wood::

What’s your latest binge-watch?

The West Wing! So good!

What’s your stripper name? ( First pet’s name + street you grew up on)

Zoro Brier Gardens. I don't think I would get any tips.

Cook us your favorite meal.

Put $40 in your wallet and head down to DMK Fish Bar.
