I fangirl over politicians and British royalty. I’m a Mad Men character in a modern world. I live in the Camelot era of propriety, Frank Sinatra, and the jet set, but believe in the radical philosophy that minorities and women are people too. Buddhist philosophy, existentialism, and nihilism are some nice ideas as well. I’m a Washingtonian and a vegetarian, so I’m sure you’re surprised to learn I’m a leftist libertarian. I love Wall Street though - meaning 1) Manhattan is my favorite place and 2) I love finance. My life goal is to make the obituary of the Economist. India, cats, current events, tea (chai), Starbucks, Nutella, and fashion are high on the “things I love” list (along with friends & family obviously, I swear I’m not a cat lady).
