What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a cool job at a small non profit where helping high
schoolers to invent and then build crazy tech inventions for people
with disabilities. It rules.
I also am a painter and sometimes show stuff places, occasionally
"DJ" places (In parenthesis because I mostly just half-assedly
fiddle with playlists in exchange for free booze) once in a while
do film/photography work and often make dumb useless stuff for fun
(see headpiece in profile picture)
New skills I am currently trying to acquire: C++, French, and
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting strangers to tell me their life story without me asking,
starting the dance party, winning at card games, drawing portraits
of my friends, asking questions, telling stories, collaborating,

And as for Food
I am willing to try anything that
is made well, but Indian, Ethiopian, Thai, and Mexican are probably
my favorites. One of the things I miss the most about San Francisco
is all the Burmese
restaurants they have there. I also love to Cote D'Ivoireian food
joint down the street from my house.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
+Stuff to make stuff with (was going to say paper and pens, but
then I realized, if it came down to it, I could maybe make paper
out of leaves and bark and ink out of rusted metal and citric acid?
so I guess I technically could do without it, depending on what
else there was around?)
+Other people (good ones especially)
+A sense of humor
+A healthy curiosity about the world
+Oh, fuck it, a paper and pens.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How lucky I am.
Things like education, evolution, people, places, the universe,
music, current affairs, the last thing I read, my next projects,
and how to make the world around me better, if only
I sometimes work with an NGO in Liberia - It's on my mind a
Also fun things like drag queens and baseball. Like, those things
specifically, more then you'd think.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Somewhere with at least two of the following things:
-dancing (even if just in the kitchen)
-a good crew of friends
-beer, gin or whiskey
-a paintbrush, pastel, pencil or pen
-a good laugh or five
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am mildly dyslexic and I wear glasses because when I take them
off I have a little bit of a lazy eye. Hopefully you think lazy
eyes and the ability to read backwards are endearing?
