My self-summary
I've just moved to Portland, and I'd love to make lots of queer friends to do all sorts of fun things with. I fancy going rock climbing, hitting up yoga, dancing at shows, attending interesting lectures, occasionally hiking, and discovering dive bars. If these things sound interesting to you, and you'd like to make a new friend, shoot me a message!

I'm British. Not the Downton Abby kind, but think more Lock Stock and Snatch. I'm part gypsy, part royalty.

I read tarot cards.

I'm a terrible cook, but that doesn't stop me from throwing a mean dinner party.

Sometimes I'm bleached blonde, sometimes I'm a brunette, depends on the time of year.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a psychotherapist, if you're one of my clients reading this, therapists need to date too you know!

I drink a lot of coffee, read a lot of books, and try make it to yoga in the spaces in-between.

I play the fiddle when feeling particularly inspired and the house is empty, I have no natural talent at it, so try to spare the roommates hearing the same tune on repeat.

My undergrad was studio arts, I used to identify as a painter, however I don't paint much these days, other than small water colors in the park when it's sunny.
I’m really good at
Fort Building. They are bad ass.

Banana pancakes. Sometimes with chocolate chips.

Talking. I'm a therapist, communication is vital to me.
The first things people usually notice about me
My accent.

I'm from North East London England, but have been in the States for 9 years, so my accent is something of a mix between British and Californian.

It throws people off when they first meet me.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Psychology. I'm psychoanalyzing myself. I'm psychoanalyzing you.

I'm thinking how can I challenge the status quo of capitalism or patriarchy or the heteronormative hegemonic paradigm...

Sex.
On a typical Friday night I am
Any given night there's a dinner party at my house, which turns into drinking wine by the fire.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have opposing desires.
One, to be a dyke on a bike.
The other, not to die.

For now I'm on a bicycle, but I really truly want to learn how to ride a motor bike.
