Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a recovering gypsy, working on staying still.
I've never been one for monogamy, and happily find myself in an
open relationship with the fabulous padraigmac
. His hilariously awesome
10-year-old daughter lives with us.
I've worked & traveled my way around the world, but I am always
happy to come back to coastal BC.
I am here, there, and everywhere
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Exploring and figuring out how to make a living doing the things I
love to do. Finding a good work/life balance (so trite, but very
true). Trying to become a better person, a better artist, a better
and more conscientious citizen of the world... (part of me can't
believe i just typed that... in fact that entire paragraph almost
makes me want to vomit at myself). Working a pretty interesting and
ridiculously flexible day job. Applying for grants to support the
making stuff. experimenting. gardening.
buying shoes and dresses I can't afford.
selling things I don't need to pay for the shoes I can't afford.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
listening to and understanding marine weather forecasts, trying to
telemark, trying to surf, and procrastinating. Vegan baking (even
though i'm not vegan). non-vegan baking. cooking. setting up tarps.
taking down tarps. laughing at myself. always keeping myself (and
usually others around me) entertained. Explaining how tides and
currents work. Making musical instruments out of bull kelp. keeping
people happy in torrential downpours while huddling under a tarp.
soldering. writing in abbreviated, non-capitalized sentences. And
essays. I sure can write me a mean essay.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
allegedly I have beautiful eyes, a lovely smile, and fabulous
or that if i'm wearing heels, odds are i'm taller than you.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

these lists are impossible! these things are constantly changing as
i get exposed to new things- but here's an attempt....
My current (Oct 2015) pile of reading materials looks like this:
Seeing Power (Nato Thompson), Women In Clothes (Shelia Heti et al),
I Love Dick (Chris Kraus), Living as Form, Artificial Hells (Claire
Bishop), Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction (Benjamin), The
Politics of Aesthetics & The Emancipated Spectator (Ranciere),
Scandalous (Annette Krauss), Wanderlust (Rebecca Solnit), News from
Nowhere & Other Writings (William Morris). And also trashy
romance novels. I'm nothing if not a contradiction.
Movies: Most things the Mexican trio have had anything to do with
(although not all). All things Wes Anderson has had anything to do
with. Some things by Jim Jarmusch.
I watch more TV than movies these days- I enjoy True Detective
(even the second season), Deadwood, Top of the Lake, Black Sails,
and the like.
my musical taste is too eclectic to get into- but if you've never
heard of Ali Farka Toure, Talib Kweli, or Corb Lund you should go
look them up. Lately while working in the studio its been an odd
mix of mostly conscientious rap and the Cure. Also sometime Biggie
Smalls. There's that contradiction again.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
hmmm... I don't know about never do without- that's a bit extreme.
However to quote Maria: These are a few of my favourite
Coffee in the mornings (and the rest of the day too...)
Friends & love
Hijinxs (both of the outdoors & urban types)
Some form of creative expression
Intellectually stimulating conversation
Rodger (my bicycle)
Bacon (i used to be vegetarian... bacon was my downfall)
(i know thats more than 6.. really I could, and have, done without
most if not all of these things for varying amounts of time... but
my life is better with them- and that's what the question is all
about really, isn't it?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
the epic never-ending battle of unicorn vs narwhal.
My next, most beautiful tattoo. How I would draw something I happen
to be observing. Who would win in a fight between a great white
shark and a polar bear. Music. Art. People I love. Where I should
go to grad school. How I can pay for grad school. How fucking
amazingly lucky I am to have electricity, running water, an
education, health care, a computer, and a roof over my head (and
how ironic it is that i seem to dislike my government a lot more
than people I've met in other countries who don't have these
how many great artists were driven to great heights by accidentally
ingesting lead based paint, or other poisonous material that
happened to be laying around in their studio.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I own a 3-piece matched luggage set. It's not like dior or
something ridiculous like that, and in fact i got it (all three
pieces) at a thrift store in Trail, BC for $10. It's from the 70's,
in mint condition, and makes me very happy.

you can spell entire words and form complete sentences. Although a
lack of capitalization doesn't seem to bother me. Strange.
