My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Zealously overeager and passionate about both my pet issues and local social justice movements in general, I am also left-handed.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Navigating! After years of Portland nonprofit purgatory I landed what's more or less a dream gig empowering youth to participate in local politics, with a fuzzy bit of social justice via transportation activism on the side. I'm pretty busy running around doing that dorky-but-earnest democracy thing, and after running myself into the ground doing electoral work last november i'm discovering i miss having a conspirator to whisp up some shenanigans, go to some shows, drink maybe more than necessary for a tuesday night, that whole jam. I keep threatening to leave town again for a more grown-up degree or exciting job in urban planning or policy of some sort as part of the next chapter whenever I'm burnt out on the rain and the smug baristas, but in all honesty, I love it here; for better or for worse, Portland's home (I grew up here and wrote a fifth grade report on the Urban Growth Boundary, so yeah, I've been on brand for a while).

I am quite content spending a few more years putting down roots and watching every nook and cranny of this quirky, scrappy, raucously independent little hometown of mine change over the years with all you folk moving around and starting businesses and painting murals and playing banjos in basements and building condominiums and all. How lucky we are, to inherit such a town, and how cool it'd be, in having a hand to make it a better place for more folks to live, that whole drill.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking excitedly with my hands, genuinely meaning just about everything that i say, getting riled up, amusing cocktail party-worthy anecdotes about urban planning, folding maps.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm usually laughing and wearing a big dumb grin, showin' off my diastema.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Vonnegut, Coupland, Galeano.

And yes, The Wire is a seminal urban studies text that has profoundly changed my life, and I'd love to talk your ear off about it, hear what you have to say about it, or (re)watch all five seasons of it with you, should you be interested. In a perfect world, everyone would have a ready answer to the question, "Are you a Stringer or an Avon?" and I could successfully use this inquiry to start conversations at cocktail parties. Broad City and Louie are special and important, although I'd rather be doing just about anything else other than extensively watching television. We live in Oregon, there's so much nature here! Go outside, a little rain never hurt anybody, and there's probably a warm cup of coffee or a beer waiting for you, wherever you're headed.

Future Islands, Hurray for the Riff Raff, St Paul and the Broken Bones, portland scenester crap, 90s jamz.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My beloved bicycle (streets are for people! I could and likely will talk your ear off about the importance of sidewalks, a cause I have grown to care deeply about in the past few years), an honest cup of coffee, and my Multnomah County library card, for starters. "Things" are overrated anyway, right? Just give me a respectable campfire (either out in the woods or in a backyard) with some respectable friends and barely respectable beers and I'll be doing just fine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
"I carry my privilege like a piece of lumber: constantly worried I'll turn and hit someone with the half I can't see."

Neighborhoods, streets, places, inclusive political movements, democracy, and how to make all of these things better, or at least tread through them at my own speed without fucking everything up too much while I go about my business trying to get said honest cup of coffee.

Also, beer, although I know next to nothing about the actual brewing process, and the Portland Timbers, my one true love in life, although historically they seem to know next to nothing about the actual winning process.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hopefully with some friends, smiling profusely, drinking slightly less profusely, sober enough to bike back up the hill, back up North Williams in that omnipresent, endearing Portland rain.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you find this whole trying-so-hard thing i'm workin' endearing and familiar
you're ambitious; even if you haven't yet figured out exactly what you'll burn all that ambition on and it's maybe not something that your parents would approve of
you have bike grease or coffee stains on 80% of your clothes
you could talk my ear off on something you're passionate about
you like yourself, and think I might like you too
