My self-summary
I'm a good friend and a feminist doing my best to live a connected, emotionally rich life. I'm also working on a PhD in political science at Stanford. These goals are sometimes at odds.
What I’m doing with my life
I study politics, applied statistics and how to make a better cup of coffee.

I went a little overboard traveling this year. By the end of the year, I'll have done 107k+ miles in the air. I'm not planning on that being a regular thing, I just had some pent up wanderlust that needed expression.
I’m really good at
...finding good restaurants that look dumpy from the outside.

...making people feel comfortable.

...dessert.

...getting to that point in the evening where things get serious and we talk about out feelings and everyone loosens up and starts to laugh and cry and appreciate life.
The first things people usually notice about me
My beard. But you already knew that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite author is Haruki Murakami, but I'm reading some Australian history. I go down there a couple of times a year for work and have really come to love the place.

I love finding new music, but there will always be a special place in my heart for hometown-heroes WILCO. Some other perennial favorites are the Decemberists, the New Pornographers, Neko Case, SLOAN and The Hold Steady. Lately I've been listening to a lot of Bleached, Sleater-Kinney, The Blow and Femme.

I don't watch much TV, but I've really enjoyed American Crime Story, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, The Sopranos, The Wire, Battlestar Galactica (both versions!) and The Americans.

Any movie written by Charlie Kauffman goes to the top of the list (except for Anomalisa). But some other favorites are I Am Love, Spotlight, Tokyo Story, Melancholia and anything from Werner Herzog, Errol Morris or Tarantino.

Cooking is a big part of my life, and French food is my first love. I try to stay true to the classics or cook ingredients to their maximum potential. I'm not into gimmicks.
The six things I could never do without
My bike
Cuddles
Delicious coffee
Thoughtful friends
The women in my family
A good pair of headphones
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My delusions of grandeur.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having dinner with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm the little spoon.

I found my current roommate on craigslist. Email subject line: "Bearded espresso lover seeks bearded roommate for lumberjack-inspiried living"
You should message me if
...you want to learn new stuff from each other.

...you KNOW you're great.

...you know everything is more beautiful when you have to work to see it.
