My self-summary
I moved to Durham a few months ago, steadily finding my people here. Been working on progressive campaigns for the last few years, now getting into teaching.

I value self sufficiency and learning how to make/fix/grow/cook/reuse stuff. I place a lot of value in communication in my relationships, intimate or otherwise. I'm into creative types, books, writing, arts and crafting, activism, bikes, hiking, good music, good radio.

ENFP, feminist.
