With the exception of my brief journey west, I've lived in Baltimore for a while now, and I think it's a pretty rad place.
Now I teach and I write. In each case, I do one so that I can support doing the other.
I'm also pretty proud of the writing I do. I write for a few local publications, and I have a few stories and poems published, and I can stand behind most of it without any embarrassment.
Music: I can't really tell any more. I grew up on skate- and polisci- punk, but nowadays my taste is pretty broad. Lately I've been on a Roots/Folk/Alt-Country kick. Before that, it was Doo Wop.
TV: I want to tell you that I don't watch television, but that would be a lie. Protip: there are more seasons of The Great British Baking Show, but they are named The Great British Bake Off.
Poetry and poetics
My dog, Chickpea
I hate that I need to include this, but I should say that I'm not looking for a "unicorn," nor the normative baggage the term implies.
Oh, and please don't message me if you're sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic or generally an unwelcoming person.
