I love to draw, read, make stuff. I'm a bananagrams fiend and I
hide my stacks of unread books in my closet as to not feel
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an artist. I make paintings, drawings, and small wood
sculptures. I teach art at an elementary school where I practice my
Spanish. I am a letter writer, recovering thrifter, and expert
vegetarian paella maker.
I’m really good at
trivia and word games
letting people know that I care about them
The first things people usually notice about me
my distinctive but understated fashion sense.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: On Sundays I like to listen to classical music, and on
Fridays I listen to synthpop really loud on my way to work.
Movies/tv shows: Angels in America, Project Runway, and
BBC murder mysteries.
I love public radio documentary/interview-type shows -- Interfaith
Voices, State of the Reunion, 99% Invisible, Radiolab, etc.
Books: Alif the Unseen, The World to Come, The Charioteer, and C.S.
Lewis' Space trilogy. I really like the work of Sherman Alexie,
Ursula LeGuin, Chaim Potok, Robertson Davies, and John Dubus.
Foods: vegetarian food, chocolate, oranges, tea, really good bread,
olive oil, olives, popcorn, dried mango.
The six things I could never do without
family (esp. my sisters)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
language: etymology, communication, translation, etc.
how to avoid becoming a cat lady art teacher who wears whimsical
outfits and dansko shoes
On a typical Friday night I am
at a friend's gallery opening, or just taking it easy after a long
week (i.e. pjs, puppy, and netflix)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My sister helped me write this. If you don't like it, it is her
You should message me if
If you want to go drink tea sometime, visit a museum, or learn
