My self-summary
I'm a dreamer (pisces/aquarius cusp). I meander, a lot. Born in California, raised in Texas, went to college in Oregon and studied abroad in Glasgow, UK. I definitely want to travel more, but for the time being I am satisfied with making a real connection to this place. Collaborate with me.
Good music turns me on.
What I’m doing with my life
I sell my art, and spend most of my time trying to figure out how to make meaningful art that also allows me to make a living off of my art
I will be moving away from Portland at the end of the summer to get my MFA.
I’m really good at
listening.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair is usually a few interesting colors.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read. I would say that some of my favorite writers and poets are Neil Gaiman, Haruki Murakami, Ray Bradbury, J.R.R. Tolkien, Ursula LeGuin, Robin McKinley, Dave McKean, Douglas Adams and Anne Sexton. Ask if you want to hear more; all of these lists are quite long.

A few movies that I never get tired of are Waking Life, The Fountain, Harold and Maude, and Cry-Baby.. but I also love terrible science fiction or horror movies.

I enjoy lots of cheese, Orphan Black, Parks and Recreation, How to Get Away with Murder, Spaced, Samurai Champloo, Cowboy Bebop, and Dragon Ball Z.

I don't really play any instruments, but I love to sing loudly and flail about. I have a ukulele, coconut kalimba and harmonica that I like to mess around with. The bands/musicians that I probably couldn't live without are: The Dresden Dolls/AFP, Against Me!, The Doors, Nine Inch Nails, St. Vincent, Joanna Newsom, Jason Webley, Led Zeppelin, Violent Femmes, The Cure, Jana Vebrova, the Mountain Goats, Mogwai, Puscifer, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, and CocoRosie.

I love all sorts of food, but there's nothing quite like a big, rare steak. Yum. Japanese, Mexican, Thai, Indian and Italian are also some of my favorite types of food. I love cheese.
The six things I could never do without
my friends, my family, music, books, nature, and art.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to make my art as honest as possible, the ocean, connecting, how interconnected the arts are, feminism, overthrowing the patriarchy, unlearning racism, covering my favorite songs on ukulele, gender, tattoos, that time I gave Neil Gaiman something that I painted, becoming a tree
On a typical Friday night I am
at a concert or fucking about with my friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I often dream of cows and I smoke too much weed.
You should message me if
you want to.
