My self-summary
I appreciate small absurdities in mundane contexts.
Like when subway conductors go rogue. Best so far: "Ladies and gentlemen, this train is now going express. All of you wearing headphones are f**ked."

I occasionally give away my midwestern past by smiling excessively, or striking up conversations with the checkout lady.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a freelance costume designer for theatres and operas all over the country. The hours are intense, but I love what I do, which is essentially the business of using peoples' clothes as a medium for telling stories.
The first things people usually notice about me
Curly reddish hair. Smile. Short. probably holding an absurdly big book.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV/online:
Send me your most terrifying Black Mirror dream premise.

Books:
Whatever I'm reading. Currently juggling some Shirley Jackson, Helen Oyeyemi and a biography of the 19th c. anchor-tattoo-sporting royal badass, Empress Elizabeth of Austria.

Podcast addictions:
TAL--always and forever. Radiolab, 99% Invisible, Memory Palace, Lore.
Anything on NPR.

Music:
semi-obscure 1960s-1980s, David Bowie and friends, Bacharach pop songs.

I love watching weird old music videos, like these 80s gems:

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What makes people tick.
On a typical Friday night I am
My work doesn't have a regular schedule, so I might be painting designs, at a bar with friends, out at shows, or in with a good book.

Lucky me, they're all pretty fun.
You should message me if
you value empathy.

you've got something interesting to say.

you know a little bit about who you are, and what you want. You already have interests, goals and ambitions--I have plenty of my own that keep me busy, but it's fun learning about new worlds through the eyes of someone who is passionate about them. I'll return the favor.
