Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
To summarize: I'm really very straight-forward. Except for when I'm
I'm really passionate about the things that I love, and utterly
devoted to the people I love. I mostly don't have time for anything
else. When not being very in love with whatever I'm doing/talking
about, I'm very chilled out and hard to fluster.
I pride myself on being really damn scheme-y and creative. I love
design and photography and generally making things look really damn
I love watching people who are good at things. Even more so if it's
something I can't do. Failing that, I love listening to people talk
about things they love.
I'm really good at looking after myself, and probably you too. I
like people who are also really good at looking after themselves. I
look for bluntness, honesty, and strength in my people.
I have lots of strong opinions, but will usually sit out a
situation for a whilst before sharing them, until I've got the
measure of people. I like people who'll defend the things they care
about, and who aren't scared to care about things.
I have no idea what I want to do with the rest of my life except do
things that make me happy. I think that's a damn good goal. Some of
these things currently include: photography; drinking really good
coffee; cooking for people; feminism; down-to-earth queer shit;
dressing fancy; going for drives through eucalyptus trees; being
high up; horse-riding; getting my super talented homos to play
music for me and listening in awe; finding ingenious ways to fund
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Being a big homo and loving my people and my life as well as I
Moved to Cali from Britain last summer, cos it's sunnier here.
Spent a while gettin things in order, and now lookin for some
community and chosen family and all that delicious stuff! I have
come to the conclusion that I really enjoy people, so by all means
hit me up if you want to be really enjoyed.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making places feel like home; cooking; being scheme-y; getting what
I want, even when the odds are against me; being a cocky little
shit; having the kind of conversations that empty out busy coffee
shops; knowing people; dad-dancing; drinking coffee; doing things
I'm scared of; procrastinating; being embarrassingly in love with
my cat; being embarrassingly in love with Andrea Gibson; sorting
other peoples' lives out for them instead of doing whatever I
should be doing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People keep telling me they thought I was really cool when they met
me. This shows I clearly haven't been around enough puppies,
lately. I'm definitely not cool around puppies. I'm probably trying
to put one in a sweater.

I'm largely of the opinion that no one reads - or cares about -

cis white men.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- My pack of queermos
- Long and inappropriate conversations with my best friend on
- Puppies and bridges. This is a shifty doubled-up answer, cos I'm
a badass like that.
- My iphone
- Other people's hoodies (they make me feel loved)
- Fuck tons of photos
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I, without fail, manage to write too much.
When I next get to drive, passionately, over the Oakland bay
bridge. Preferably whilst eating a burrito. For ultimate
happiness-to-time ratio. [Edit: passion only applies to old bay
bridge. New inferior bridge not included.]
How many puppies is too many puppies.
Wanting to find other cats who are both irrevocably working class
and unswervingly turned on to, as my housemate puts it, 'doing the
revolution without being an asshole'.
If I've mentioned puppies too many times in this profile and anyone
has realised that I'm actually not cool, especially around puppies.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Ideally: cooking dinner with friends, a couple of beers, a guitar
& nothing to get up for in the morning.
Realistically: watching The Wire & modelling myself on Omar.
