My self-summary
Friendly neighborhood goblin seeks friendly ghost companion(s.)
Slightly terrified of this website; probably more fun in person.
What I’m doing with my life
What are you doing with Your life, OkCupid??

What do you doooo with a BA in Theatre?
-It's a mystery, but we're getting there. For the time being, writing middle school history lessons for a homework help website.
-Trying to learn more about microbiology
-Looking for more friends and collaborators
-The rest is a work in progress.

TLDR: Working, sleeping, arting, editing, adventuring, reading, Netflixing, looking for more work, occasionally screaming.
I’m really good at
drinking half my weight in tea (no seriously)
reading out loud
playlists
walking very long distances by accident
making sweet & savory popcorn
The first things people usually notice about me
"firm handshake"
"why are you wearing a star on your cheek?"
"punk mister rodgers"
"are you a clown?"

-Gender (fuck it)
-"Wait, when did I last eat?"
On a typical Friday night I am
raising mayhem and battling insomnia

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once wrote (only half-joking) erotica about an alternate universe in which Oscar Wilde and Ernest Hemmingway were contemporaries, called "The Importance of Banging Ernest."
