Grew up in... Boulder, London, and Omaha (I was a nomadic kid).
Nickname (was)... Johnyates, like it's one word.
Will kick your ass at... bar trivia.
Believer in... every party being a theme party.
If I had to be on a reality show it would be... Hoarders, according to anyone who's ever lived with me.
I am not... a Manhattanite or a Brooklynite. I live in this obscure borough that's so cool you probably haven't heard of it.
Absolutely won’t eat... unless someone reminds me to. It's called the Absent-Mindedness Diet.
I can't stand... bartenders who muddle fruit in an Old-Fashioned. I didn't order a "Jamba Juice with whiskey"
I love... NYC history, classic cocktails, WPA posters, typography, hiking, and my boyfriend.
When I’m not at work, I can be found... designing typefaces, making comedy, wasting hours in the deepest, strangest, corners of Wikipedia.
I always... wear a tie.
