Moved to Atlanta to be closer to family after finishing graduate school in Vermont. Originally from Washington State.
Trying to learn the ways of the South as best as I can.
Being involved in the community I live in is something that's important to me...so I like to spend a lot of time at outdoor festivals, volunteering, and other random events.
I would describe myself as optimistic, patient, and down to earth.
What I’m doing with my life
Advocating, supporting, & empowering students...for now. I
really enjoy my job because it's new every day.
I’m really good at
Making coffee... I spent some time as a barista.
Remembering interesting facts that eventually come in handy.
Baking/Cooking: Your Dekalb Farmers Market is sometimes my Friday night hangout.
Adventuring: One of my favorite things to do is pick a location in another city and go explore for the day.
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Revolution Starts at Home
Normal Life: Administrative Violence, Critical Trans Politics
Persian, Thai, Vietnamese, Mexican, Indian, BBQ, Donuts
How to Get Away with Murder
Orange is the New Black
Oprah (back in the 90s she taught me a lot)
The six things I could never do without
Talks that last hours
NY Times/NPR/PBS (Frontline)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future, my next meal, education reform,
social/political/economic stratification,where I can find the best
Thai food in Atlanta, and the best shows/movies I can watch on
On a typical Friday night I am
dinner, Netflix, relaxing. Saturday night is a different story
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm left handed and I've been known to be at the barbershop for a fresh cut at 6AM on a Saturday.
You should message me if
you consider yourself open-minded, enjoy good conversation, and would consider making homemade Mole fun.
Also, I'm open to meeting or dating people of all races and ethnic backgrounds.
