Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a full-time gonzo journalist and radical troublemaker.
I'm creative, communicative, and a friendly human. I'm a hedonist

Being queer means I like women, men, and people anywhere on the
gender spectrum including the gloriously indefinable. My biggest
attractions are intelligence and confidence.
I'm turned on by smart people, kinky people, and people who are not
afraid to talk about themselves. If you want to have adventures, or
stay in and use our brains in exciting ways, than I probably want
to meet you.
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: Wherefore Means Why
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work full time as an editor and journalist in independent media
for a website that responds to government corruption and human
rights abuses. I love my job, because I'm using my writing to make
the world better.
I'm passionate about activism and speaking truth to power. I vote,
but I don't believe we can vote our way out of the mess we're in
right now. I believe real change comes from the streets and in our
I've been part of the Burning Man community for over a decade. I
ride my bike around town and enjoy eating at restaurants or food
carts, dancing and making connections.
I seek a life that is as full as possible, while still maintaining
my creative output.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Capturing moments in images and words. Listening and talking,
coming up with weird ideas, networking, and not getting hit by
People usually find it easy to open up to me and I enjoy this a
lot. I consider myself easy to get along with.

whatever hat I'm wearing, my sense of humor, an intense gaze.
I sometimes wear skirts but it's interesting how often they aren't
noticed -- my favorites get a lot of 'nice pants' complements.

Perennial favorite books: Little, Big by John Crowley and Le Guin
I adore fiction but my job sends me all the nonfiction books I can
handle and then some. Right now I'm reading Cooked by Michael
Movies like Shortbus (always a favorite), Easy Rider, The Cabin In
the Woods and all the cheesy horror I can get my hands on (longtime
B-movie & MST3k fan).
Lately I've listened to a lot of Boots Riley & The Coup, the
soundtrack to Lawless, and whatever I hear on the Internet. I like
Base-FM from New Zealand and a lot of podcasts -- Porchlight
Series, Girl on Guy, Smiley & West, Science Friday ...
TV shows like Boardwalk Empire
, Mad Men
, Breaking Bad
, Democracy Now,
Bob's Burgers, Sons of Anarchy, Misfits and the Yard.
I'm vegetarian but I don't proselytize; it's how I was raised. I've
been making a lot of pesto from garlic, shallot & wild onion
shoots in my garden.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) flavorful food, 2) the Internet, 3) media to consume, 4) a way
to write, 5) stimulating conversation and company, and 6) my

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My current writing projects. Stuff I need to get done. People I
care about. Books, movies, music, and podcasts recently consumed.
Food and cooking. What it will take to get people out in the
streets. Sex, of course, which often leads to thoughts of writing
about sex and therefore brings this section full circle.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
My schedule is flexible so I have fun on different nights of the
week. I might be inside writing, at a house party, or seeking
adventure on my bicycle.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I'll talk to you about almost anything. I'm kinky. I've had a
vasectomy. What else would you like to know?
I have a FetLife profile.
