thanks for stopping in. local girl in this corner, bay area native livin large on leafy greens, tortilla chips, and craft brew. book geek and cultural observer by trade, which means you're likely to find me in classrooms, armchairs, and at the market. flip flops and jeans in between runs, swims, yoga. eager meal companion, what do you like to eat? cup-a-day. "dude, hella what."
What I’m doing with my life
teaching and academic work by trade. thinking a lot about fairness and fictions. hanging with thinkers and learners.
running in cali! swimming and lifting in between. racing on occasion. which is to say, i'm really, really happy when moving around.
The first things people usually notice about me
maybe a quickness to laugh and find something funny. maybe?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
i trade often in books, with soft spots for odd grammars and
sounds. just finished DAY OF HONEY, which is heartbreaking and
wonderful. food is also excellent, and always always ground for
geekout: cuisine, comfort, cookies. cali produce, salsa, noodles,
wine. eternal sunshine, big night, totoro, young frankenstein.
modest mouse, black keys, arcade fire, the roots. community, veep,
foodnetwork, public tv and radio.
The six things I could never do without
1running shoes 2snacks 3steamer & heat 4denim 5stick shift 6inside jokes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
smartassery. in a nice way. of course.
communities and how to open up to difference. good stories that drop off for not-so-good reasons.
lunch. and if happy hour matches game time.
nutrition, body-smartness, sports, athletics. cause and effect (for example, ballgame brew --> good morning run fuel?)
a's warriors sharks niner niner niner niner
language. how it sounds, how it's used. yup yup.
On a typical Friday night I am
cooling off the week with some wine or brew, watching a game,
movies. chilling out, mostly away from crowds.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i eat out of bags way more than the average bear. forgive me. it's sort of required. and i sort of love it.
You should message me if
you can diggit with jokes and funny sounding words, play with ideas, make stuff.
you own more athletic gear than fancy clothes.
reading this moves you to say more than Hey.
you're into social justice, humanism, art...and not too cynical to talk and dream about them.
like me, you're down to explore steady partnership, play, surprise.
