I'm originally from Orange County and have lived in the Bay Area for about 12 years. My family and oldest friends are all there still, and while I do miss them to bits and pieces and love to visit, the Bay is definitely the place I consider home base.
What else. I'm short and funny and fun. I like to cook - baking/pastry, in particular. I have a smallish but close family. Not weird/Texas Chainsaw close, but we all have a great time when we're together.
I generally need some kind of creative outlet. At the moment, this involves being part of a drag king troupe.
At some point, I'll finish one of the few paintings I have half-started, I'm sure. I tend to have a few half-started projects going at all times...but I like it that way. I like coming back to them after having some time to think.
Moms usually love me and my niece and nephew are convinced that I hang the moon, if that counts for anything... :)
