Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am the descendent of cowboys, bohemians and hearty pioneer stock.
This accounts for my fondness for whiskey based drinks, my dueling
liberal arts degrees and my inability to find boots that fit over
my strapping calf muscles.
My parents were hippies. It was not until junior high that I
realized that it was not normal to have a Christmas nativity scene
where the shepherds are making a pilgrimage to see Buddha.
I was raised without a television. Although I am generally proud of
this it also means I am often lacking cultural references from the
80's and early 90's. Fair warning.

to be trendy.
Despite my unicorn pillow cases, I am not a unicorn and have no
interest in becoming one.

ripping recipes out of cooking magazines, carbohydrates, the color
chartreuse, polka music (no really, I want to learn to yodel so

American Life (as in the Ira Glass radio program), jam and jellies
of all kinds (particularly lemon curd), naps on sunny afternoons
and Volvo station wagons.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a draper/pattern cutter i.e. the person who makes patterns
used to make clothes. Or basically the point at which geometry
I work as a draper at a theater in Seattle (amongst other things).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Sewing, writing cheesy country songs, pie baking, sitting around
drinking coffee and judging people who don't tip or order 20oz
