Hi my name is AJ and I’m originally from St. Louis, MO! I graduated from college in 2019 with my Bachelor’s in psychology. I moved to NYC in 2019 because NYC has always been a dream of mine to live in. I currently work as a barista at a small cafe on the UWS and I’m a freelance social media manager for a couple of businesses. I’ll hopefully soon be working full time in media! Some days I work remotely, so if you hear TikTok noises, I apologize, it’s for my job! For interests, you name it I’m probably into it. I love all things pop culture, true crime, wine, Broadway, dancing, going out, reading, and so much more. I love having a night in, as well as a night out. I’m a night owl at heart as well. For hobbies, I am a big movie person, love to watch the latest TV show or true crime documentary, reading, wine and food, graphic design, dancing (I often take classes at Broadway Dance Center. My favorite genre is hip hop), going out with friends, traveling. From visiting small towns upstate to planning long weekend getaways! Unfortunately, I am not a pet person. I am so sorry, I don’t like animals in general as pets.
My roommate perk is I’m barely home. Even if I’m working remotely, I try to find a coffee shop to work at. I’m either hanging with friends (which I’m using this opportunity to make friends), exploring the city, or traveling. I’m mostly at my current apartment to sleep. Another perk is I’m down for anything! If you need a friend to hang with or go do something with, I’m your person. I love to try new things!
My ideal roommate is a easy to get along person who likes to keep things neat. I don’t mind a little mess, but I like to keep common spaces neat looking. For gender wise, I am open as long as everyone is LGBTQIA+ friendly. I am using this opportunity to make more friends. As for deal breakers, the only one I have someone who doesn’t pick up after themselves or is rude. Last dealbreaker would be smoking cigarettes. The smell makes me nauseous and I’m allergic. I don’t mind when people come over as long as mess is cleaned up afterwards in a timely manner. I’m pretty easy to get along with, so I guess my ideal roommate is someone I can become friends with!
