Instinct's Associate Web Editor
HOMETOWN: Kansas City, Missouri
BIRTHDAY: September 25
Who was the first person you came out to, and when? I didn't have the chance... Mom and good ol' grandma sat me down at the dining room table when I was 13 to tell me I was gay and that they were OK with it. I didn't issue any argument and have considered myself blessed ever since.
I first kissed a boy when… I switched from private Catholic school to public high school at 14 years old.
When I binge, I binge on... Pinkberry, which has replaced my debilitating Starbucks addition.
I make a killer… spinach salad.
The movie I'm embarrassed to tell my friends I love is... Hmmm, my friends know my tastes are often questionable but nothing really lies in the realm of "embarrassing."
The movie I SHOULD BE embarrassed to tell my friends I love, but am not is... The Notebook.
The first concert I went to was... Lollapalooza (either 93 or 94), with Hole and Sonic Youth headlining. Gotta love those '90s alternative female icons!
One album I never get tired of listening to is...OK Computer by Radiohead.
My favorite TV show of all-time is Sex and the City. My goal is to become Carrie Bradshaw without going to the lengths of a discount surgery in Thailand.
My biggest vice is… caffeine. I may have been lying when I said my Starbucks addiction has been replaced. It really hasn't.
My favorite day of the week is... Saturday.
Last traffic ticket I got was... most likely for expired registration. Red tape paperwork and the DMV make me shut-down.
My favorite animal is... my dog. Though because of the way I spoil her like my firstborn, using her as the answer to this question feels odd.
If I were any animated Disney character I would be... Prince Ali. Swoon.
I never feel more alive than when I am... traveling. Feeling foreign and exploring new environments is quite possibly my favorite thing to do. (OK—there might be a few other items that rest above traveling, but those are for a different conversation.)
Angelina or Posh? Duh, Madonna is my favorite media-saturated, British-accented celeb!
