My self-summary
I make dumb jokes, I work a lot, I will make plans and then dread them but ultimately have a really good time. I'm not shy with my feelings and there's nothing I wouldn't do for my friends.

Big into history, gender studies and feminism, writing, board games, old TV shows, comic books and small, obscure museums. If you like any of those things we should get along.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm studying for an MA in modern history at KCL, and I'm looking to move onto PhD level afterwards. My research interests are in gendered portrayals of women in visual media in the early 20th century.

My dating life kind of fell to the wayside during my third year of undergrad so I'm looking to meet new people for some fun dates and to see where things go.
I’m really good at
History and writing in general: aside from the academic work, I write prose, poems and plays. I like to think I'm really good at finding interesting little niches and investigating them.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm 6' 4", with big hair and beard. I'm pretty hard to miss.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some stuff I'm really digging right now:

I'm reading a lot of comics at the moment, Ms. Marvel, Captain Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Lumberjanes, Batgirl, Giant Days. I met Kate Beaton at a signing in London and she was amazing. Anything written by women or featuring prominent women characters, I'm up for reading. For novels, I really like Catherynne Valente and Genevieve Valentine at the moment.

Top three favourite films: Halloween (1978), Amadeus, and West Side Story.

TV: currently getting through Mad Men. I'm a big Star Trek fan (ask to see my convention photos). I like old detective shows like Columbo, and lots of comedies like Parks & Rec or Peep Show.

I'm going to add a board game section here too: currently playing Inis, Galaxy Trucker, Mansions of Madness and Puerto Rico. I need more good euro games in my collection so send me recommendations.

I'm half-Iranian and I've gotta say that nothing can compare to Persian food.
Six things I could never do without
The Soviet Union
80s light horror
Columbo
Halloween
Boardgames
And, most importantly, my friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Is the past fundamentally knowable? Post-structuralism is just delicious.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing board games, or going to dinner with some friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Boswell & Johnson are my OTP.
You should message me if
You want to come to a museum with me (I will definitely take you to Dr. Johnson's house or the London Museum of transport at some point).
