My self-summary
Recently, I started participating in storytelling shows and found that I love it!! This is me at the Mystery Box Show:

I am very passionate about the work I do. I also love to get out of the house and into nature.

I am very open and people tend to feel comfortable around me--my friends are always amazed at my ability to get perfect strangers to open up to me.

I am both nerdy and a creative soul. Finding the balance between those two sides of my personality is a lot of fun!

I love to travel. My research has allowed me to live in Germany, Amsterdam, and Brazil.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a sociologist/ therapist with a specialization in gender, sexualities, and identity politics.

Because of the type of work I do, I tend to have a lot of hands-on hobbies. I spent the last year learning how to rebuild my old VW bug--everything from the engine to sewing the interior.
I’m really good at
Speaking to large crowds about sex and sexuality

Learning something new, photography, building something from scratch, explaining extremely inappropriate topics in extremely inappropriate situations (often part of my job!), working with someone going through a difficult experience.
The first things people usually notice about me
My positive energy, openness and sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: the perks of being a wallflower, Revolutionary Road, the Dark Tower, The Witch's Daughter, The Night Circus, I know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Lord of the Flies, Siddhartha, the Razor's Edge, Feminism: from Margin to Center, and, yes, of course, The Ethical Slut.

Movies: Promised Land, The Goonies, The Celluloid Closet, The Princess Bride, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Real Genius

Music: Jack Johnson, Damien Jurado, and much much more...
The six things I could never do without
My friends and family
The time I spend outdoors
Traveling...cross country or abroad
Chocolate chip cookie dough and fried chicken (judge all you want)
Projects where I get to tinker all day
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about how to connect all my different passions, activism, and nerdy love of research with what I'm paid to do.
