My self-summary
I'm from California>Alabama>New York City>Chicago>D.C.>Atlanta. I'm currently living & working a couple days a week in between Atlanta, D.C., Philadelphia & NYC ("home" is in Atlanta) for a progressive media company.

Never married, no kids. Lots of nieces and a few nephews.

I'm passionate about living authentically, a feminist, a seeker, a progressive rabble-rouser, agnostic/atheist, loves to go watch a good sporting event and a great listener. I'm a good friend, loves to read, concert-goer, etc...
What I’m doing with my life
Figuring out ways to help others achieve dignity & fairness in their lives -- and how that connects to my life.

Right now I'm directing a national digital organizing campaign against Donald Trump & making dank memes. What next? Teaching? Organizing workers? Who knows, but I'm enjoying the journey.

Work keeps me busy like most folks. I'm looking for someone who also has a lot on their plate and who is career-driven, like myself.
I’m really good at
I love to cook. I'm the kind of partner who wouldn't mind being the cook of the house.

Jack of quite a few trades, master of some. I think when you hit your 30's, you can start to say that, yes?

If you like to talk, I'm your guy. I listen well.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes and my warm disposition.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books I'm reading now: Women, Race & Class Angela Davis

When Angels Speak of Love bell hooks

I try to get through a book every couple of days (I'm loving Audible) so if you have any suggestions, let me know!

Favorite Movie: Once, City of God, Princess Mononoke or anything Miyazki, Talk to Her or anything Almodóvar, Harold and Maude, Network, Full Metal Jacket, The Tree of Life or anything Malick, Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy

Favorite Music: Depends on the Day. My favorite band of all time is Queen! Favorite Artists of all time is Erykah Badu & Donny Hathaway. Favorite Album of all time is BlackStar - Mos Def and Talib Kweli. The new Kendrick Lamar album is pretty good.

Favorite Show: All-time is The Wire. I have came to the realization that we are living in a golden age of television with the advent of tremendous dramas that come on paid television. Game of Thrones, Master of None, The Walking Dead, WestWorld etc are amazing.

Favorite Food:Tex-Mex but Ethiopian & Korean are very close behind. I love good food and I'm pretty adventurous about trying food from around the globe.
Six things I could never do without
Life is more than what your hands can grasp, goodnight! - Mos Def
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Intention vs. Randomness

Smashing the Imperialist, Capitalist, White-Supremacist Patriarchal system we live in

Our negative socializations and how to get rid of them.

How to increase my love ethic. (Shout out to bell hooks)

Why the politics of Identity are easier to digest and organize around rather than the politics of Class.

I have many women friends in their 30's (and I wouldn't mind having more friends) and the conversations are illuminating. Basically, I think about and respect that some people are on a clock. I wouldn't want to waste your time.

Getting back into that university life in my mid-30's and having anxiety about it (keeping it 100).
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm either going out for drinks, a panel discussion, a sports event, or reading at home. I'm up for anything.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I, on occasion, I give away everything I own to the homeless (except everything that I could fit in my backpack) and quit pretty good jobs. I think to rid suffering you have to rid desire. At least for me I feel that the want of a "normal life" makes me desire money, which causes greed, selfishness, etc.

I feel there is a balance somewhere in there and I'm searching for it.
You should message me if
If you've liked what you read, of course.

Just message me. I don't have premium membership on here. Yes, I said that.
