For the past year I've been traveling a lot across the US- and I'm
the biggest fan of roadtrips with loud music, windows rolled down,
intimate conversation, and unexpected destinations. I love to do
new things, and I like to find the adventure in small things. I
like to find new routes to old places, try out different bars, day
trip to a towns I've never been to- and definitely spend time
outdoors. I'm new to Denver and I'm excited to explore the
I'm an open and easy-going individual, am known to be brutally
honest from time to time, and have a small social filter. Meaning,
I don't embarrass myself easily.
What I’m doing with my life
I just moved to Colorado to work as a campaign organizer with an
advocacy organization and totally love it! I spend most of my time
organizing grassroots efforts and building power against citizens
united and big money in elections.
Besides work, I do art, read, watch movies, conversate, cook, go to
shows, listen to music. I don't like to waste my time laying
A perfect day for me would consist of an early morning porch
breakfast with some friends or a partner with a paper or NPR, going
to a thought-provoking exhibit or taking a hike. Then going to a
show and dancing my a$$ off or playing table-top games all night.
I’m really good at
laughing, putting things in perspective, problem solving. But
really- I am a very good problem solver (I have my own business and
am happy to share the deets)
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told that people notice my smile and friendly
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
1984, the kite runner, a handmaid's tale, Barbara kingsolver, haruki murakami, and other fiction.
I'm not gonna bother saying things like catcher and the rye and on the road, one flew over the cuckoos nest.. I understand if you might not like them but if you haven't read them then you must have lived under a rock when you were 16. It is the only explanation.
Movies? Oldboy, secret garden, the wackness, there are lots of great movies and it bores me to answer this.
Tv shows? arrested development, house of cards, it's always sunny, portlandia et. al.
Music: I listen to a lot of different music. Lately it's been Talking Heads, Tune-Yards, Sea Wolf, Beastie Boys, Yo La Tengo, Modest Mouse, Manu Chao, Elton John, Gorillaz, Metronomy, Old Crow Medicine Show, Bob Dylan all the time! Aesop Rock, Bowie, LCD soundsystem.
The six things I could never do without
Friends, Summertime!, a good laugh, music, coffee, and roadtrips!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
American society and politics. I'm constantly thinking about our problems as a country and what I/we can do about it. I have very strong convictions on this front and when that topic is opened I will share them. This is not to say I am argumentative I just think about politics more than the average person and I am compelled to share it sometimes.
...where did all my underwear go?
On a typical Friday night I am
Off with friends, dinner parties or going out- I can also be found
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm obsessed with what people barter on craigslist
You should message me if
I know this will do nothing to cut the problem but I don't use okcupid for one time hookups so don't message me for that purpose. You will waste your time.
Please message me if you wish your clothes always smelled like campfire, knowledgeable on great hiking spots, and want to explore Denver-since I'm new to this city.
