My self-summary
I'm equal parts sassy and sweet.

I'm pretty tangential and enjoy conversations that go in lots of directions. I'm an interesting combination of cynic-and-believer-in-all-possibilities.

I'm open minded and exploratory. Intellectual and artistic curiosity are both really important to me. Feminism and social justice are important to me.

I'm looking to meet like-minded people who believe that life is an adventure and that connections with others are some of the most valuable things in this world that we can experience.
What I’m doing with my life
Making big, ridiculous, community based art projects happen.

Starting a kick ass, family friendly co-op. Basic idea: several caring and committed adults live in a big house (or triple decker) and support each other in raising kids. If you're interested in learning more about this, message me.

Being a big science nerd and wrangling other science nerds. Day job is being a project manager for a nonprofit Biotech company.

Traveling as much as I can. Recent adventures have included Costa Rica, Frostburn, Prague, and a bunch of local hikes and road trips. Just discovered Atlas Obscura. Obsessed.
I’m really good at
falling into bodies of water. it's a serious talent.
interpreting experimental design.
being completely oblivious to cultural iconography. one Halloween there was a pumpkin with the Wu-Tang Clan symbol carved into it, which I thought was the Batman symbol.
cooking. laughing and making people laugh. laughing at myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
Whatever's in my head is usually out of my mouth within moments. You won't have to wonder what I'm thinking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Authors - Tom Robbins, Barbara Kingsolver, various nonfiction things.
I generally enjoy pop-sciencey stuff that doesn't get too bogged down in kinetic equations or statistics... Open to recommendations!

Movies - High Fidelity, Goodbye Lenin, Motorcycle Diaries, Chasing Amy, Clerks, Dogma

TV - Honestly, don't have time for a lot of TV these days, though House of Cards was pretty good. Also BoJack Horseman is randomly and unexpectedly excellent.

Music - all of that terrible stuff from the 90s is my jam. Also, Aimee Mann, Ben Harper, Regina Spektor, Ingrid Michaelson. By virtue of one of my social circles I've learned not to hate electronic music, and actually getting into live synth stuff.

Food - can I list ingredients instead? among other things, fresh sage, fresh cilantro, cheese (all kinds!), butternut squash, cayenne pepper, caramelized onions. I love to cook, especially for other people
The six things I could never do without
coffee, my awesome and weird friend-family, things that challenge my brain, colors, spices, the woods
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to build a cooperative living structure that creates a stable and supportive environment in which to raise kids.

What direction I want to take with my career and what I need to do to make that happen.

Relationships...finding the way to accomplish simultaneous commitment & individual autonomy and freedom with one's partner is a wonderful and complicated challenge. It's not something to be taken on lightly, but potentially very much worth it in the end.
On a typical Friday night I am
You should message me if
1) you wanna have a beer or a couple... bonus points if you can find deliciously awesome and bitter IPAs.
2) you are an open, fun person who enjoys and values connecting with others
3) you want to talk about things that matter
4) you want to make art
5) you want to collaborate on something cool
6) you have a romantic streak that's not limited by the ideas that mainstream culture puts out
