That little anecdote is a polite way of saying I'm a a Manic Pixie Workaholic. I make site specific conceptual work with a strong social practice component. I breed snails, I map old signs, I study ancient waterways and long compromised ecosystems, I make jewelry, I sew clothes, I raise seeds, I lead walking tours. I volunteer for too many community art events. I mentor too many other artists. I fight for the future I want to live and create in. I fall hard, fast, and constantly for people doing the same.
What else? I work in developer marketing because the Bay Area is an industry town. However, I try to keep the tech talk to professional networking events and out of my dating life. I expect others to do the same.
Have I left anything out? Lapsed goth, recovering clown, semi-retired burner, aspiring cat lady, proto-crone, amateur professionalist, post-booze, sexy-awkward-as-fuck stick in the mud with a heart of gold. I wear metal shirts to yoga, dresses in the metal shop, and animal pajamas to corporate strategy sessions.
