My self-summary
Androgynous ginger.
What I’m doing with my life
I work at an ad agency doing things that most people would probably not call advertising. I'm a "User Experience Designer" by trade, which means that I draw a lot of pictures about how people might use things.

I'm a maker of all sorts. I'm always up for nerding out in the name of creativity.
I’m really good at
I'm pretty handy with a felt tip pen, and I draw silly faces or provocative calligraphy on almost any available paper product.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my hair. It's dark red, asymmetrical and does strange things sometimes. It can look either short or long-ish, depending on the angle.

On special occasions, I like to wear ties. People invariably point this out when I do, but it's usually in a complimentary manner so it's cool.

Occasionally people tell me I look like Elly Jackson of La Roux, but she's probably way cooler than me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books
Pretty much anything with either queer folks, robots, or nice design.

Movies
My all-time favorite movie is a cheesy 90's romanic comedy called Kissing Jessica Stein. I keep hoping the ending magically changes every time I watch it.

Shows
I'm really enjoying this vlog (that counts a show, right?):

Music
I've been listening a lot to Pomplamoose lately.

Incidentally, I also love La Roux.

Food
Generally I like spicy things, sweet things, and starchy things. I'm not vegan, but I do like vegan meals. Also Burritos, because they can be all of those things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm aware that my industry is responsible for all manner of problematic activities and social influence. My personal role doesn't often require me to do things that I feel are unethical, but for the record I do not sleep well at night.

I'm pretty serious about intersectional feminism. For me this often means working to address my own class and race based privileges, but also learning to be more be productively vocal when I encounter sexism and heterosexism. My male coworkers throw around the "c" word far more than I am comfortable with.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I often have to work late on short notice, which can make social plans kinda tricky. I apologize ahead of time if we make plans that I later have to rain check. Trust me, it's not an excuse to stand you up, and I would way rather be hanging out with your lovely self than wrangling project deliverables for a client.

Sunday afternoons are usually a pretty safe bet though.
You should message me if
You want to get brunch or go on a bike ride.

I'm interested in meeting friends of any gender.

Romantically, I'm usually attracted to androgynous, soft-butch, low-femme and/or genderqueer characteristics, but there are definitely exceptions. Kindness, respect, and intelligence are big turn ons for me.

I don't typically seek out more than one romantic thing at a time, but I'm open to dating poly folks, as long as it's okay with your partner(s).

I'm pretty friendly. You should go for it. If you invite me to something, I'll probably say yes.
