My self-summary
First and foremost! I'm in a loving, monogamish, and long distance relationship. Feel free to continue skulking.

If people had labels, mine would say "Visual, smart, and optimistic, with a streak of independence that only comes out all the time. Pairs well with everything, but has a kick that you won't expect."

I'm a Midwestern native that has been in New York City for the last four years after living in France and Boston. (Not in that order.) And now I'm in Cincinnati.

I can get a little silly, and I'm more than a little nerdy. I like to laugh, create, and ask questions. I'm also good at fixing things, preparing for zombie apocalypses (apocaly?), and solving problems.
What I’m doing with my life
As an educator, I devise entertaining activities that will teach people to appreciate art and find their own creative voice. And I am always covered in paint.

But I always make time for reading books, biking, winding down with drinks, and brunching with my friends on the weekend.
I’m really good at
Pretty much everything!
Laughing, creating things, thinking outside of the box, making people smile, and being devils advocate. Giving advice, listening, being a good friend. Sleeping, spooning, eating, kissing, breathing, hogging all the covers. I also have a pretty awesome moral core. I swear a lot.
The first things people usually notice about me
My crazy crazy glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Philip Pullman, Meredith Pierce, Garth Nix, Robin Hobb, Robin McKinley, Jack Kerouac, Elizabeth Peters, Susan Cooper, Neil Gaiman, Lev Grossman, Tom Spanbauer, Carlos Andres Gomez, George R. R. Martin

TV: Firefly. Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Louis CK. Bobs Burgers. Maron. Anything british...

Movies: Star Wars, Princess Bride, Casablanca, Dave Chappelle's Block Party, Jane Eyre, Swingers, Almost Famous, The Royal Tenenbaums, Trainspotting, Tootsie, and basically anything by Kevin Smith or Joss Whedon.

Netflix has pegged me as a viewer that likes "Independent movies with a strong female lead." Frankly, I like films that I can identify with.
The six things I could never do without
Pockets: I was not born with a kangaroo pouch...

Cellphone: It is the magical device that tells me where to go, what I need to do, and what others are doing.

Feminism: The astonishing belief that women are socially, economically, politically equal to men.

Rubber Bands: They close bags half full with frozen peas and hold my hair back when I am drawing.

External hard drive: I just bought a 1 Tera External Hard drive... and my life has officially changed.

Earphones: I always want them because I always lose them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What type of dog I want to get.
"Am I subconsciously supporting the patriarchy?"
Not killing the earth.
Privilege. (I think about this a lot.)
My next tattoo.
Joss Whedon (Specifically, why he should have written Star Wars- Phantom Menace!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Looking for my lost earphones. Then once I've admitted defeat, I exit my door for another food/movie/gallery/music/bar/theatre adventure with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'd rather be drinking wine.
You should message me if
If you listen to Brian Lehrer or Diane Rehm, are GGG, and know who Ai Wei Wei is.

You want your life to be more interesting than good.
If you have confidence, ambition, and a sense of humor.
If you believe in Reproductive Rights.
If you're a pro-level communicator with a nerdy silly side who wants to go on adventures.
