My self-summary
work in progress
What I’m doing with my life
policy wonk

I spent much of my nascent adulthood in New York, with a stint in DC, then somehow landed back in Massachusetts. I grew up on the outermost reaches of Cape Cod. In college, I studied public policy & community health, and since have worked in the philanthropic sector, with an AIDS service organization, and managed to get a few political campaigns under my belt. My latest professional foray is in environmental public health, with LGBTQ youth policy as an after-school activity.
I’m really good at
conversations with older Democrats; promoting sexual health; pushing boundaries (in a good way)
The first things people usually notice about me
"God he talks a lot."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books: 'Tipping the Velvet'. I love a good short story: 'In Other Rooms, Other Wonders' and 'Pilgrims' are recent favorites.

music: love lots of it, but bad at keeping up with it

movies: Broken English

television: Gwen Ifill/Washington Week. PBS NewsHour, South Park.
The six things I could never do without
1. Lip Trip Mountain Ocean lip balm
2. Cape Cod
3. Campari
4. my parents: they're way cooler than I'll ever be
I spend a lot of time thinking about
policy & politics; how to make things better for LGBTQ youth in Massachusetts; how many back-up 3 course dinners do I have in my freezer; the slight possibility that Hillary Clinton will demur the 2016 Democratic nomination and instead host of a new HGTV 'love it or list it' show featuring various intl heads of state.
On a typical Friday night I am
either homebound for the weekend or preparing an excessive dinner for friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
As a child, I was practically mute and played incessantly with hundreds of plastic animals that I collected and arranged according to genus.
You should message me if
you're a smart, good person who is passionate about their work and the world; who has a serious side, but knows how to have a good time.
