im a shy nerdy brown girl living in brooklyn, with roots in Chicago and Mumbai... I strive to be creative and conscious and tend to surround myself with artists and writers.. I love traveling, particularly long road trips and short getaways to breathtaking places. I'm the one who's always up for taking late night zipcar rides to the fringes of the city to stargaze. I spend a lot of time in speculative and mythic worlds of things im reading and things i'm writing.
What I’m doing with my life
i manage communications at a labor studies department. after work i try to write stories and code when i get time. I love good films, readings and shows. constantly working on new creative projects but bad finishing what i start!
I’m really good at
Learning things quickly and retaining tons of useless and sometimes useful information of all types, but particularly when it comes to history, technology and languages... things I'm currently tryin to get good at: fiction writing, scrabble, graphic design, coding.
The first things people usually notice about me
im tall.. and i get stopped several times a week by people who demand to know how tall i am. its annoying as fuck.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Authors: Lately reading... Octavia Butler, Nalo Hopkinson, Nnedi Okorafor, Tananarive Due, Steve Barns. I feel majorly influenced by their works.
TV: I'm a scifi junkie, and will watch some pretty mediocre shows because tv writers are the worst. i dont like gore but lately i've been enjoying zombie shows too much. Also Mr. Robot.
Movies: Waaay too many to name.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
damn near everything! Wikipedia is often my late night companion...
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching a movie or having dinner with a friend or two... I'm a
lightweight when it comes to alcohol, but i'm down with the green
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
perhaps its a bit narcissistic but I have a bias towards supertall
and/or glasses-wearing people...
You should message me if
