What I’m doing with my life
In that awkward space between grad school and real life. Designing, photographing, and volunteering.
I’m really good at
Music, illustration, photography, academics, writing, being more or less pragmatic, keeping an open mind.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height! And teeth? People say I have nice teeth.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Seven movies I have enjoyed, in no particular order: Lucky Number Slevin, From Dusk til Dawn, Gone Girl, Ex Machina, Moonrise Kingdom, The Devil Wears Prada, Gattaca.
All-time favorite shows I will (and have) watch repeatedly: Scrubs, Sense8, White Collar.

Favorite authors: Orson Scott Card, Heinlein/Asimov, Matt Ridley, Mary Roach, Patrick Rothfuss.

Music: I usually listen to electronic music (GRiZ, Karma Fields, Calyx & Teebee, Bassnectar) or indie stuff (GEMS, Chet Faker, The Internet, FKA Twigs, SBTRKT). Also been known to listen to from everything from Stevie Wonder to Metallica to Madonna to Bowie, so it really just depends on my mood.

Food? I eat primarily vegetarian. I will never say no to Jaffa cakes or Vietnamese food.
Six things I could never do without
Music, sunlight, the internet, curiosity, and my family. And animals, especially cats/dogs, i.e. perfect furry angels.

If you have a cat, it increases the chance I go out with you exponentially.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why light can't go any faster than it does, stuff about brains, stuff about whether or not we absorb calories from our own saliva, gender/sex, cats, dogs, how to be a good human, systemic racism, ethical structures, how to get better at conversing, how to optimize most social situations and relationships, how to not die, my continuously deteriorating spelling skills...
On a typical Friday night I am
Simply hanging out with people out-n'-'bout (dancing, beer, movie, board games, talking) or sitting at home reading/watching movies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm emotionally attached to a blue flannel shirt, like any true Seattleite should be. In fact, it shows up in 4 of my pictures on here (all taken over the course of 3ish years on completely independent occasions).
You should message me if
- You like people
- You continuously try to be better than you are now
- You have something you're good at and can teach me
- You're naturally curious and excited about life
- You are queer/genderqueer/trans/male/female/whatever you identify
