My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've been totally blind my whole damn life, but I'm happiest when immersed in visual culture (art museums, postmodern dance, silent movies, etc). Go figure.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I recently graduated with my master's in arts in education, and hope to teach fanfiction-writing and poetry to kids in an after-school program this fall. I also got a fellowship through Harvard this summer, and I'm hoping that by the end of it, I'll be able to think like an engineer. (My natural tendency is to think like a poet, which means that I overcomplicate *everything* and am incapable of staying on one topic). If I am successful, the product I am designing will train people with very very limited vision to make better use of it, through enhancing their awareness about where their eyes are pointing. I'm in this scary, liminal place, probably familiar to most entrepreneurs, where I alternate between extreme hope and extreme despair.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing ghaazals. Laughing hysterically when you walk me into things. Being honest. Making references to poststructuralism in casual conversation.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I put on my ridiculous version of a South African accent. (I was born there but grew up here).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My taste in literature is exceedingly contemporary. As for movies, the Piano was one of my favorites. I also liked Whiplash and Beginners a lot.
I am generally pretty amusical, but I like to vicariously appreciate other people's musical taste. SO basically, I'm a blank slate, with a bit of a soft spot for electronic music (which makes my synesthesia do cool shit) and folky ballads.
Food: If it's Asian, or something salty combined with something sweet, I'll probably want to eat it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Resonance. Empathy. Intimacy. The Victorian era. Fanfic. Decadence.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Identity. Social justice. How much I'd like to go on a spontaneous trip to the Amazon. Right now, I'm spending a hell of a lot of time thinking about sensorimotor loops and how to close them.
I also think a lot about energy and intuition and past lives and woo-woo shit like that, and whether they have a scientific explanation. quantum physics seems to be the most promising direction in that regard. (If you are a science person, feel free to mock me mercilessly when I miss-apply technical terms, and get way too excited about the mirror neuron system.)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You know how to program in Unity or Matlab. You love the idea of collaborating to build something awesome (an art installation, a story, my crazy vision project, you're crazy project, whatever it may be).
You have more exciting things to ask me then, "How do you access this site?" The answer is Googleable and only marginally interesting. (Though if you want to geek out about text-to-speech and web accessibility standards, I'm your girl. I have this secret techy side that I surprise myself with sometimes.)

You want to go to the ICA (I still haven't been). You want to go on summer adventures (road trips to the beach, kayaking, frozen-yogurt-tasting, etc).
