Hi, I'm Allie from New York. I collect postcards, postage stamps, stickers, buttons and vintage ephemera. My favorite hobby is creating mixed-media art. I'm a voracious reader (mysteries), and I love the theater. I miss seeing Broadway shows.

On weekends, my boyfriend and I sometimes go fishing, with hit-and-miss results. My grandfather was an avid fisherman, and I have fond memories of him getting up early on a Sunday morning and leaving to catch dinner. He'd clean and gut the fish in the backyard, which seemed seriously gross at the time, but my grandmother turned his catch into the most divine dishes. He'd then plant the fish heads in the garden, as they make incredible (albeit stinky) natural fertilizer.

I love being on the water, be it sailing or enjoying brunch at a waterfront seafood restaurant. Give me a New England lobster roll or a seat at a summer clambake, and I'm a happy girl.

Before COVID, I had started boxing at the gym, which was a great stress reliever. I'm not Muhammad Ali, by any means, but I've learned to hold my own. I recommend it as a way to feel really empowered!

As you can probably tell, I'm not a girly girl. My art is seldom frilly--more modern, eclectic and occasionally weird. I like pushing the envelope. I prefer dapper gents to Victorian ladies. I'm more film noir than Disney.

I have fantasies of moving to Maine or Scotland, and I'm a little obsessed with finding the Loch Ness monster.
