An INFJ, social justice-seeking, technology-taming, dessert-loving
nonprofit road warrior unicorn.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a few years out of college (studied sociology and ethnic
studies) and i currently do a mix of public awareness/outreach, web
development, event planning and social media/marketing for a
Portland-based nonprofit. I'm basically in my dream job: I get to
use my nerdy computer skills in the service of a worthwhile
When off the clock, I can be spotted in the wild exploring food
carts, scouting out scenic but relatively easy day hikes (I'm a

I’m really good at
+Obliterating desserts with my face

TV: Doctor Who, Parks and Recreation, Firefly, Agents of SHIELD,
The West Wing...

+a good notebook
+anti-oppression theoretical frameworks
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Tasty foods to cook and/or put in my face-hole, smashing the
patriarchy and deconstructing oppression, whether I can conjure up

long lists of kitty names for when I have non-allergic roommates.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes I'm hanging out with friends over dinner, an excellent
scotch and/or a movie. Sometimes I'm recharging by myself, curled
up on the couch with a good book. All are pretty fantastic plans,
as far as I'm concerned.
You should message me if
+You are unapologetically nerdy.
+You enjoy good whisky, Portland-area hikes, live jazz and/or food
+Feminism informs your perspective on the world.
+You're seeking something more substantive than a flingy throwaway
dalliance. Ain't nobody got time for that.
