I work for a geophysics company, which occupies my time but not my
heart. My interests instead lie in acquiring the skills to better
myself as a person. I appreciate those that take the time to
challenge my preconceptions.
I spend my spare time wandering around town, experimenting with new
recipes, or being in the company of the people important to
I find travelling amazing. Experiences I've had: being in Argentina
on an expired visa; sitting by the side of the Seine in an
impromptu picnic involving hundreds; going to a comedy club in
South Africa; attending a large hacker conference in Las Vegas;
losing my wallet with my only sources of money and ID in Las Vegas;
being in one of the floats for Pride in Ottawa; going on stage in
New York City to give a talk after Jello Biafra (The Dead Kennedys)
put his ass to the mic; infiltrating a Tea Party rally in
Washington DC with my then boyfriend; watching the sun set in Cuba;
eating fresh vegetables from an incredible backyard garden in San
Jose; going to an all-night rave in Montreal; seeing the Aurora
Borealis in the Gaspé Peninsula; baking cookies at midnight with
friends in Ottawa and hitting up Nuit Blanche; attending the Rally
to Restore Sanity and/or Fear in DC; stumbling on the Trans March
I enjoy making things. I've written and self-published two books,
directed three feature-length films, coded a bunch of little
open-source projects, and blogged blogged blogged.
I've been referred to start HRT and will do so in February. I
identify as trans
the extent that I can get access to what I need to live, but do not
relate to the label. Genderqueer
are words that are
closer to the mark.
I'm a people watcher.
