Right now, I've finished a PhD program and I work for a nonprofit
progressive political organization on the side. I write all the
time--chapters, articles, speeches, PR, long-winded emails. That's

Durham or Raleigh, or just walking my dog and thinking.
The best compliment I've received this week is that I'm
adventurous. The most useful critique I received is that I can be

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'd like someone/s to hang out with and have fun. While I'm really
open to a lot of things, anything will begin with coffee and a

Family dinner is kind of a cultural thing. But after, it's up in
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am perpetually daydreaming. Even in situations when it's really
You should message me if
You're open minded, kind, and read my "time thinking about"
section. If you'd like to meet up and see where things go, drop me
a line! But please, please don't message me asking to meet for sex.
