My self-summary
hyper bookworm, lazy cyclist. superfan of the well-crafted pop song. I live right across from fabulous Humboldt Park.

Trying to collaborate on my first musical - a modern midwestern adaptation of Three Sisters. It's going to be ridiculous. Please send relevant song title ideas & I'll treat them as writing assignments.
What I’m doing with my life
writing, brunching like it's my job, re-memorizing the two- and then three-letter words, and making transcendent soups out of my CSA.

I have today off so I bought fancy groceries, watched a documentary starring my celebrity crush Carl Hart and successfully untangled & rewrapped a tumbleweed-looking 100 foot XLR cable! Big. Fun.

Working weekends.
I’m really good at
Trivia, cutting curly hair, last minute adventures, being bossy, shit talking during scrabble.
The first things people usually notice about me
I talk, a lot - and gesture wildly while doing so. Also, constant dancing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
a) Always Magic in the Air: The Bomp and Brilliance of the Brill Building Era, The Sexual Politics of Meat, Thin Skin, You Are Happy, Love is a Mixtape, Street Reclaiming, Matthew Dickman, Czesław Miłosz, Anna Akhmatova, Lethem, Stoppard, Austen, O'Connor.

b) Nashville, Manhattan, Metropolitan, West Side Story, Wire, Whedon, West Wing. The last dance sequence in "Center Stage" is a sublime slice of cinema.

c) These days I only listen to Pulp's "Like a Friend", LCD Soundsystem's "I Can Change", The Mats' "Unsatisfied", Baby Huey's "A Change Is Gonna Come" + all of Rumours over & over. Oh, some Whiskeytown & Scott Walker work their way in as well.

d) deep fried artichoke hearts, fresh passion fruit, asparagus, chewy vegan brownies with walnuts, kale, scapes, stuffing, home grown tomatoes, lavender lemonade, brewer's yeast and most condiments.
The six things I could never do without
Bicycle, brother, hot sauce, water, well ordered words, good green things to eat...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why more people don't read poems or see plays. How to get Chicago to stop driving everywhere. My dad. Modern Feminism. Gender identity. Food politics. Friends and family all spread out. Songs that go with other songs. BPMs. Home.
On a typical Friday night I am
waving not drowning.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm in a monogamous domestic partnership and I'm just here to find scruffy tall cyclists for my awesome friend in St. Paul to date.
You should message me if
You live in Chicago, eat all your vegetables, ride a bike, can hold your own in a smart argument & want a dance partner.

Please do write with poems to read or plays I should go see.

You have a close crew of seriously large-hearted, generous, wise friends who like to sing a long.
