some things about me.

well aside from the obvious that im an awesome new yorker, i also work full time as an interactive designer at an cool agency in chelsea. im fluently sarcastic, a minimalist lover + live my life by way of list. my boyfriend of almost 8 years + i live together with our 3 yr old pomeranian, ari in queens. i am a self-proclaimed buffalo wing connoisseur, appreciate great type + actually own a car (if you live in queens, you need one). you will almost never catch me without my ray bans + a denim button up of some sort. i have a full left sleeve which really doesn’t make appearances until the summer.
