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
Wild curly reddish hair. Smile. Short.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV/online:
Counting the days til new Black Mirror episodes premiere.
Also into Game of Thrones, Mad Men, American Horror Story, and other beautifully-designed things

Books:
Whatever I'm reading. Currently juggling some Shirley Jackson, Emma Donoghue and a biography of the 19th c. tattooed royal badass: the Empress Elizabeth of Austria.

Podcast addictions:
This American Life. Radiolab, 99% Invisible, Memory Palace, Lore.
Anything on NPR.
I once was at a Radiolab afterparty and had a really hard time keeping my cool because all my favorite public radio personalities were there.

Music:
semi-obscure 1960s-1980s, David Bowie and friends, Bacharach pop songs (not ironically).

I love 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 have your own interests, goals and ambitions. I am often busy with mine, but it's hot learning about new worlds through the eyes of someone who is passionate about them. I can return the favor.
