Extroverted introvert. Warm. Radical lawyer. Committed to abolishing prisons and legalizing drugs. I like (and can't stop) talking passionately about big and hard ideas. Happiest when I'm moving in my body. Love lead climbing, metta meditation, 30 rock and COZINESS. I'm trying to like black coffee.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a lawyer working to overthrow the prison system, legalize drugs, and heal the people who have been hurt in the process. I also climb and am learning about herbalism and alternative healing modalities.
I’m really good at
Talking you into a longer hike. Inhabiting masculine and feminine energies. Dissecting ideas. Being friendly and asking a lot of questions. Listening to your answers. Dancing. Moving. Laughing too loudly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Octavia Butler, James Baldwin, Stephen King, Kiese Laymon, Sherman Alexie, Dostoevsky, Borges, Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor.
Andrei Rublev, Jaws, Nymphomaniac, The Babadook, A Blaffair to Rememblack. Any good horror. Any Bergman, Tarkovsky, Von Trier.
HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER!, 30 rock, broad city
Joanna Newsom, Cold Specks, 60s-70s ska, Desmond Dekker, Joan Armatrading, Julie Ruin, FKA Twigs. Music that moves me.
My mom's food.
The six things I could never do without
Family + deep friendships (this is one and the same need).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
This Audre Lorde quote:
"Tell them about how you're never really a whole person if you remain silent, because there's always that one little piece inside you that wants to be spoken out, and if you keep ignoring it, it gets madder and madder and hotter and hotter, and if you don't speak it out one day it will just up and punch you in the mouth from the inside."
