My self-summary
I am a caricature of everything I wanted to be as a child. I'm a bohemian metrosexual. I have unlimited willpower and very little self control.

I read like it's my job. I really hate not being stimulated and need to constantly be learning. I love it when someone beats me at a game.

I climb trees higher than is appropriate. I probably feel too comfortable on a jungle gym. I play "The Ground's Hot Lava" regardless of who's watching.

I use "I" statements in sequences of three. I'm unpredictable.

The Internet is the best thing that has ever happened to society. The content on the Internet is the worst thing that society could possibly create. I spend way too much time on Facebook but cannot for the life of me understand Instagram.

Nothing gets me more excited than when a new Ta-Nehisi Coates article pops up in my RSS feed. Except perhaps when Vox puts out a new policy podcast.

I'm attracted to both women and men, but I don't think I could date a straight person. Even if our genitals are mismatched, it'll be a queer relationship. I was raised by a pack of wild lesbians and I don't understand the institution of marriage. Seriously.

What I’m doing with my life
Reading, writing, citing, finding a better citation, ending up in the horrible hell that is 100 open tabs in Chrome and realizing I haven't written anything in a while. Finishing my sentence. Realizing I need another citation and returning to the ghastly existence that is peer-reviewed data.

I'm two years through a two and a half year graduate program and I love every minute of it. I really adore academia, I've climbed up the ivory tower and built a comfy pillow fort inside.

Pre-grad school I spent 5 years teaching before and after elementary school to the raddest bunch of kids you'll ever get a chance to meet. I really enjoyed teaching math with the help of a set of colorful pencils and pristine pad of graph paper.

Before that I flew around the world and did PR for Nintendo. At 21 I thought this was the coolest thing in the world, by 26 I found it soulless and evil. I can't fully explain the difference but science does find that your prefrontal lobe doesn't finish developing until you reach age 25, which for me coincided perfectly with 2008. Thanks Obama.

The first things people usually notice about me
I'm probably talking to you. I also probably forgot your name.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I really do horribly at this pop culture section and I promise I've already skipped over yours. I don't have the patience (or cash flow) for movies and read a billion short articles (and three or four way too long ones) each day.

I love to dance but can't be bothered to keep up with what's hip. Luckily someone pays DJs to keep the rhythm flowing.

The six things I could never do without
Internet, a bicycle, my disturbingly-close group of friends, scotch, a sense of adventure, a smart phone.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics. The closer to home the better.

Whether the system as it is benefits me unfairly.

Whether this sample size is statistically significant.

Income distribution, regressive taxation, novel new policy tricks, whether or not we can reframe the question, if I can find a better source for my citation.

Math. And the philosophies that can be derived from it.

The man in the mirror.
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking at a dive bar with a fisherman. Dancing at a gay bar while I wait for my friend to look up from Grindr. Studying if I didn't get enough done during the week. Celebrating yet another eccentric birthday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't think we really have privacy these days (but god bless the ACLU for trying). I have no filter and wear my heart on my sleeve and/or as my Facebook status update.

I sit down when I pee out of solidarity.
You should message me if
...you're feeling courageous
...you're up for at least one crazy evening.
...you're in or around Seattle, I'm not a commuter.
...intersectional feminism means something to you.
