Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I landed in Tucson 3 years ago after a lot of moving and exploring,
and I love this town more every day
I'm a photographer and a cook, I do yoga, I like reading, crossword
puzzles, making art, growing food, riding my bike, camping...etc,
I'm feminist, atheist(ish), and generally have a hard time shutting
up. I will always say how I feel. I'm also very nurturing, I like
taking care of people and making the people I love feel good.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I think the best thing you can do for the world is be the most
authentic version of yourself, and I'm trying to live every day
with that intention.
As far as work, I've had a strange variety of really interesting
jobs - I've worked as: a photo editor in magazine publishing (I
worked for Oprah, who is rad, and Rachael Ray who is NOT), a
victim's advocate for survivors of domestic violence and sexual
assault, full time staff at a homeless shelter (by far my favorite
job), a WWOOF'er, and a buncha other stuff. I came to the border to
take a job at a non-profit involved in education and activism
around both immigration and food justice issues, and right now I
teach cooking/gardening/nutrition skills to women.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, reading out loud, whistling, hitting potholes I'm trying
to avoid, losing things out of my bike basket.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

My all time favorite books are A Language Older Than Words by Derek
Jensen (an uplifting 418 pages about how the dominant culture is
destroying the planet) Cunt:A Declaration of Independence by Inga
Muscio, a House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros, The Alchemist
by Paulo Coelho, and A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Genius by
I don't watch a lot of movies (you should see how long it takes me
to pick one on Netflix.) As far as TV, I got rid of the one-eyed
monster years ago and I think it's one of the best things you can
do for your sanity/quality of life. Since internet TV is a thing I
do watch some - I loved 30 Rock and am so sad it's over. I love
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. I religiously listen to a lot
of podcasts from public radio.
Food is kind of my life. I like to grow as much of my own food as I
can, and cook with/for friends as much as possible. I'm the most
comfortable and relaxed when I'm in the kitchen.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My women friends, aspen trees, my bicycle, coffee, art, and a cozy
place to sleep.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What it must have been like to look up at the night sky and not
know what the stars were. The fucking patriarchy. How Amy Goodman
fits so much information in her brain. When I can travel, where I
can go, and who I can see. If my art is actually any "good". Who
figured out how to eat an artichoke. How much longer it will be
until the planet is ruined. How rad and resilient the desert is.
How much I don't know.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually a combination of dinner/drinks/dancing/going to a show
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've never seen like any classic movies. This includes but is not
limited to: star wars, the big lebowski, the matrix, the godfather,
lord of the rings and anything else you think "everyone" has seen.
