Once upon a time, I was an aspiring art historian, but now I pretty
much read comics. It feels like I've lived a few lives at this
point, but I'm happy where I am now.
I collect globes, love animation and animals, and want to see as
much of the world as I possibly can.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for a comic book shop. I was a customer first, and I told
them one day that their social media could use a boost, and they
ended up hiring me. Now I can read comics for free, and get paid to
post nerdy things on tumblr.
I’m really good at
I am really good at reading books. If I like it, I'll finish it in
a day. I'm good at getting obsessed with a tv series and watching
all of it in a probably unwisely small span of time. I like to
bake. I am really, really good at loving my dog. The two of us are
good at taking long walks with no leashes. I'm not bad at this
The first things people usually notice about me
When I yawn, I look like the mummy in the movie "The Mummy."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: anything by Neil Gaiman, "Out of the Silent Planet" by C.S.
Lewis, romance novels, young adult fantasy, murder mysteries,
graphic novels, science fiction, just about anything by Jane
Austen, Nancy Drew. Poetry by Pablo Neruda, e.e. cummings. Lots of
comics. Comics should get their own thing, but The Sixth Gun is my
Movies: How to Train Your Dragon, The Empire Strikes Back, The
Princess Bride, The Mummy, Serenity, Sherlock Holmes, Singing in
the Rain, terrible adventure movies, anything Miyazaki, just about
anything by Pixar, Amelie.
I love Brooklyn Nine Nine so much that I married it. Also: Monty
Python, Firefly, Stargate, Community, Parks and Rec, 30 Rock,
Misfits, Primeval, Sherlock, Venture Bros, Adventure Time, Gravity
Falls, Steven Universe, Doctor Who, Cosmos, Orphan Black, Miss
Fisher's Murder Mysteries, Arrow, DC animated stuff
Music: A great many things. Classic pop and rock, modern rock,
musicals, soundtracks, stuff I can sing along to, shouty girl rock
from the 90s
Food: if it can be boiled down to essentially cheese and crackers,
I probably like it. Also pickles.
The six things I could never do without
A book to lose myself in
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The places on Earth I'd like to see, those three kids they show
before any show in an AMC cinema. What are those kids up to these
days? I hope they're having good lives. (I was going to update
this, but I still wonder about those kids, and they don't even show
them before the films anymore.)
On a typical Friday night I am
I have a weird work schedule, and Friday nights are more like my
Sunday nights. So Fridays, I'm usually watching tv or reading,
unless someone else has physically ejected me from my house for
some reason. During the summer, I go to a lot of Nats games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I read, I sometimes pick a character and read their part
aloud--and I totally do accents.

to go to baseball games, or have seen every single episode of
