been with for almost 10 years, and DRWise
for 4. Note the polyamory
(Hello, ladies! I heartily recommend either/both of my partners
to you. They are wonderful people. And I can provide many
less-biased character references. Have at 'em! And if you want to
get on my good side, which I recommend, come on over and get to
know me while helping with stuff or holding the baby.)

myself as a persistent pain in the ass. I practice yoga and
As a kid my parents took me to volunteer at a camp for kids with
physical disabilities - it's influenced almost all of my major life
choices. I'm now on the board of the camp. It's still my favorite
weekend of the year.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am investing my energy on my baby, health, happiness, partners,
friends, and my education and career.
I'm active in theater & social advocacy. I drive manual, and my
favorite song has always been "Twist and Shout". I do yoga, play
frisbee, and swim, and love baking, knitting, sewing, crosswords,
conversation, movies, fashion, board games and the beach. I emulate
Emma Thompson and Madeline Kahn.
I’m really good at

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Advocacy - disability rights, LGBTQ rights, consent culture
Theatre & other performance art
My family: partners, baby & beyond
Medical resources & exercise (see "The most private thing I'm
willing to admit)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to be as effective, healthy, and fulfilled as possible, and how
I can support those around me towards those goals.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Lazing. Possibly hosting friends at home. I can be convinced to
drag myself off the couch, but it has to be compelling.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I identify as disabled. I had a very severe digestive disorder a
few years ago, and I still have after-effects. I am functional and
feel pretty good most of the time, but I have my off days and still
receive regular treatments.
I am very careful about what I put in my body, so I don't drink or
do drugs, and rarely eat anything I haven't prepared myself. But I
have little problem with what other people do/eat.... excepting
that drunk people and going to restaurants bore me to tears.
