I am a born and raised Seattleite, but I was able to escape to the Bay Area for five years (with a stint in Paris).
I am an adjunct professor and I run my own business helping artists. I also recently founded a nonprofit that works to help diversify the arts with a few of my friends. Because of this, my schedule is completely odd. I can be extremely busy one week, and have absolutely nothing going on the next week. Either way, I don't have time for the typical Seattle flakiness.
I do band photography and have a radio show every week on KSUB. I have turned it in to a podcast where I interview anyone who promotes the DIY ethic from musicians and filmmakers to record label owners and activists. I've been a punk rock radio DJ for 16 years now. Sometimes I DJ out at bars too. I end up at local shows a few times per month.
I am vegan, but I am not snobby about it...unless you rub it in my face, and then I will be forced to quote facts and figures to you. None of us want that.
If you are a liberal and want to talk politics we may very well become best friends. I consider myself an activist. I also consider myself a feminist, so if you think Feminism is a bad word, you probably want to look elsewhere.
