I have a pathological problem with authority figures.
I'm a good citizen. Community is important to me.
I've been called a functional weirdo. (still trying to figure out what that means).
2/3 of my instagram feed contains pictures of my cats.
I've been called a good feminist/ ally on many occasions.
I make art, I curate, I study, I teach, I play.

I'm attracted most to people with a passion to make things. That could be writing, music, or whatever else it is you do. As long as you're passionate and dedicated to it, I'll appreciate it.. I'll even encourage it!

I'm not one for the 9-5 suburban life, and prefer to chart my own way through life rather than follow prescribed routes. I never used to be this way, but once I did, I can safely say that I've never been happier. I play well with others,and believe in the power of community. Sharing in our successes is always infinitely more satisfying than celebrating one's own.
What I’m doing with my life
A PhD in an interdisciplinary program (studying digital games/ new media art/ architecture)

I make art, both digital and analog. I curate art shows. And Arcades.

I run an art festival in Toronto.

I read a lot, I think about things then write about them.

Several years ago when I decided to return to grad school after a long absence, I've discovered that academic life and me get along really well. So I think I'll keep doing it!!!
I’m really good at
curating.
writing.
art making
grant writing.

The first things people usually notice about me
Generally its that I don't look my age. Most people think I'm much younger than I am, which has its advantages. Recently, when she found out how old I am, a colleague asked me where I hid the aging portrait of myself!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like all kinds of films from different genres, though I lean heavily on sci-fi. My first degree was a film degree, so I still have a love for classics: Kurosawa being one of my favorites. and Anything Godzilla! The same could be said for my TV preferences. Others: the Wire, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Luther, Sopranos, etc.

Books: a lot of theory books at the moment. Stuff on the history of new media, archival practices and curation... though favorite fiction authors include: Gaiman, Gibson, Auster, Coupland, Doctorow Ackroyd, Sinclair. I love books on architecture, the hidden histories of cities (like Ackroyd's London Under, which is AMAZING!)...

Musical tastes: I'm a cross genre listener, and will give anything a chance. though lately there's been a lot of indie music from diff't genres, lots of ambient, electronic, grime, rock, hiphop, etc. Some of my faves right now: Le1f, Fatima el Quadiri, Eno, Aphex Twin, Matt Berry, and tons and tons of other stuff.

Open to any and all foods except for mushrooms, olives and broccoli. If you like that stuff, that's fine.. you can have mine!

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
