I'm nerdy, introverted and contemplative, enjoy exploring and thinking about the world, and relaxing with people I know.
I've lived in the Bay off and on for the last few years and fall in love with the weather again nearly every day, but it all feels mildly dystopic with the drought/global warming.
What I’m doing with my life
Ending corruption and getting money out of politics - next I'm on cancer and colonizing Mars. Also co-founder at a tech start-up. Writing an historical political drama and developing a card game in my free time.
I’m really good at
I make a mean egg scramble breakfast burrito.
Making connections between seemingly different/unrelated

The six things I could never do without
I go a little bit stir crazy when someone takes my internet away.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how we can get rid of corruption and clean up politics
the economic systems of the Star Wars (capitalist?) and Star Trek (communist?) worlds and what that can tell us about our world
Sometimes I narrate the world in my head - hey, it's practice for writing okay??
really Obama? really?
On a typical Friday night I am
With friends - out dancing, board games or just relaxing
You should message me if
