My self-summary
"You're like a polymath for weirdness."
What I’m doing with my life
At the age of five I had life figured out - when I grew up I would either be an artist, a scientist, a historian, or a dump truck (not the driver, the actual truck). So when genetics shattered my dreams of becoming heavy machinery I became an artist instead.

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 costumes, 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 shop, and animal pajamas to corporate strategy sessions.
I’m really good at
Turning Type 2 Fun into Type 1 Fun. Making you Google what that means.

Swans are the perfect soundtrack for writing your dating profile to.
Six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How much I miss lightning in the desert. That the Ikea in Emeryville was built on top of an ancient burial ground. That Drawbridge is the Bay Area's sole ghost town. That the Mission and SOMA are crisscrossed with buried waterways and that the original waterline downtown is somewhere around New Montgomery Street. The Raven's Manzanita, the California poppy, and the fragility of urban ecologies. The physiology of moss, the logos on bottle caps, and how I can make art about them. How to unfuck the world and build community. Would a pirate *really* wear hot pink booty shorts?
You should message me if
Let's go start an art cult. For real.
