My self-summary
I like to make weird things and go on long walks. I'm an earnest cornball with radical politics. Half-serious, half-goofoff. Too many emotions. Moderately-hopeful romantic. Semi-closeted nerd.

Nazi-punching is good and property destruction is not violence.
What I’m doing with my life
Art & academia. Work ranges from techno-opera about the final 500 years of humanity sung from the perspective of a piece of steel to a photo book of the biggest balls of twine in America.

I'm what happens when someone who is kind of sad reads too many Verso books.

Recently, I joined the DSA. Years ago, I left a different socialist org for their terrible responses to racism and sexism in America (spoilers (for them): racism and sexism intersect with issues of class but exist separately as well).
I’m really good at
Balancing being hyper-analytical and highly-sensitive.

You should message me if
You like these date ideas: going on a long walk, listening to records in the dark, drawing on a big roll of newsprint, scouring a library. You're ok with working on different projects while in the same room as a regular thing.
