scientist, musician, jeweler, photographer, foodie, unintentionally intimidating, strangely wholesome, mildly manic, certainly overcommitted, gregariously misanthropic, and not a fan of trying to summarize myself.

On pronunciation: it's Cora-LINE, like clothes-line or Caroline, NOT Cora-LEEN.
(According to Neil Gaiman, and he would know.)
