My self-summary
I'm pretty down to earth, thoughtful but have a strong sense of fun. Finding me out and about checking out underground music venues or new food spots.

I wake wondering what creative people, places and ideas I might encounter today. That and waking up to C-SPAN radio and hearing how Congressmen are muddling along can get anyone out of bed (either out of desire to fix it or freaking out over what a mess it is out there...)
What I’m doing with my life
I've been working at a rape crisis hotline and it really helps put life in perspective.

And on the side working on a film project about DC's punk community for the 80's.
I’m really good at
Listening and being empathetic while still being direct.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm friendly and good at bringing people out of their shell.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Life A User's Manual by George Perec, absurdist plays such as The Blacks: A Clown Show by Genet or Mother Courage by Brecht and young adult novels such as The Phantom Tollbooth. I used to work in one of the most extensive academic indy bookstore in NYC and would spend as much time browsing the books as shelving them.

And movies- Tampopo by Juzo Itami, Black Cat White Cat by Emir Kusturica, After Life by Hirokazu Koreeda. Constantly adding to this list. In terms of TV, binged watch Orange is the New Black...

But my first love is live theater- especially playful unconventional experimental sorts- the kind where you can happily include your friend who's a painter as a performer and have a solo cello performance be the "voice" of that scene.

Music can range from o' timey country to electronica to funk- can go on about this as well. Currently satisfying my new music fix with Newtown radio.

And can happily spend a day gathering food- starting with breakfast at a new bakery, a snack from another favorite spot and then dinner at a restaurant I've been curious about or take away from the hot bar at the small Latino grocery store in the hood with some amazing smelling stewed shrimp. I come from a family that enjoys exploring through food- my ideal trip involves visiting some place with an exciting creative vibe with good food.
Six things I could never do without
writing implements and paper
summer heat
good friends and good humor (even the ice cream will do!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Making sure I don't forgot to make a difference while I'm around... and as an activist- how to change the world with some anarchist fun...! It's not about destruction of the state- but about how to creatively think of alternative forms of governance/organizing
On a typical Friday night I am
Working (I like having alternative weekends during the week), booty shaking after work (though I'm a terrible dancer), or movie night with throw back movies from the 80's.
You should message me if
You're confident because you are self-aware and following your passions. Confidence is sexy. Being true to yourself is sexier.
The two of us
