I am a silly, crafty, quirky, and kinky queer who likes to fuck with gender normatives. I'm either incredibly shy or extremely outgoing. I have a passion for helping people and challenging the status quo.
I'm in an open and committed relationship.
Ask me anything :)
What I’m doing with my life
I work at a non-profit in SF that helps young people from poor communities grow and develop - every day is a new cup of chaos.
When I'm not at work, I'm typically watching Netflix, crafting, coloring in my 'Big Kid' coloring book, or eating delicious food.
My current life goal is to keep myself together.
I’m really good at
Crafting, making more bow ties than i can evwr wear, baking cookies, making snarky commentary, and putting googly eyes onto everyday items.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a short redhead.

The six things I could never do without
Burt's Bees chapstick
The ocean/bay/body of water
Autostraddle & my Runaways
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Gender and sexuality, if any new Autostraddle articles came out, what color pencil to use next, privilege, if the work I'm doing is effective, how to be a better ally, ways to dismantle the patriarchy, if there's any chocolate in my house, the drought, my next tattoos.
On a typical Friday night I am
Desperately trying to relax at home, mustering up the energy to go out, taking a quick walk on the beach, or sleeping. I work on Saturdays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a rainbow painted on my ceiling.
