My self-summary
The first thing you should know about me is that I'm a total geek. Whether gaming, film/tv, politics, or even philosophy, be prepared for long-winded, over-enthusiastic ramblings.

Other good things to know about me: I'm a grad student going for my MBA, I'm a long-time progressive activist and plan to start my own nonprofit one day, and my personal hero is Emma Goldman.

**photos are all really out of date, I'll update them eventually**
What I’m doing with my life
Working as a graduate assistant (free tuition! faculty parking!) while getting my masters degree.
I’m really good at
Writing, arguing, analyzing films/books, being a friend.
The first things people usually notice about me
When I'm in my relaxed mode: sense of humor. When I'm in my activism mode: intense passion.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Pretty much anything by Clive Barker, Margaret Atwood, and Armistead Maupin. Favorite book of all time: Dune, by Frank Herbert. Currently reading: The Berlin Stories, by Christopher Isherwood.

Movies: waaaaaay too many to list. Some of the big ones are Snowpiercer, Rules of the Game, Angels in America, Lion in Winter, Snatch, Brick, Clue, Black Christmas (original), Hellraiser, Barry Lyndon, Blues Brothers, The Exorcist, Thank You for Smoking, Latter Days, Suspiria, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Cannibal the Musical, Children of Men, Paris is Burning, Poseidon Adventure, Office Space, Donnie Darko, Boondock Saints, Bon Voyage, and Airplane.

Shows: Battlestar Galactica, The Wire, Buffy, Dollhouse, Arrested Development, Game of Thrones, Six Feet Under, Walking Dead, Good Wife, Orphan Black, Outlander, Daredevil, and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.

Music: I grew up listening to nothing by Broadway musicals and 60s/70s rock. Now I listen to whatever my friends send me, which tends to be a lot of punk cabaret, victoriandustrial, and contemporary folk. Basically, don't ever expect me to be listening to the latest pop hit.
The six things I could never do without
Warning: sappiness ahead!

1. Family/friends: I know everyone puts this, but I really would be lost without these people.

2. My community: There is a big difference between being queer and being part of the queer community. I was such a different person before joining the community, and I owe it a lot of the positive changes in my life.

3. Film/TV: I may have given up film as a career path, but I'm still obsessed with media. It's taking every ounce of energy not to type a long essay on the importance of film as a cultural force right now.

4. Writing: I still have a strong creative impulse, and I use writing to channel it.

5. A cause: Activism/advocacy is just what I was born to do. If the world somehow magically became a uptopia, I would be happy for about two seconds, then feel like I have no purpose and get super depressed.

6. A pet: Because they're cute.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How epic a Sanders vs Trump election would be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out on a couch with some good friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a cuddle-slut.
You should message me if
--your idea of the perfect date is cuddling while watching a movie
--your idea of a fun night out is going to a protest
--you can think of anything to say besides "hey wats up"
--you want to start up a queer tabletop RP group
