My self-summary
Random facts about me:

I am a born and raised Seattleite, but I was able to escape to the Bay Area for five years (with a stint in Paris).

I am an adjunct professor and I run my own business helping artists. I also recently founded a nonprofit that works to help diversify the arts with a few of my friends. Because of this, my schedule is completely odd. I can be extremely busy one week, and have absolutely nothing going on the next week. Either way, I don't have time for the typical Seattle flakiness.

I do band photography and have a radio show every week on KSUB. I have turned it in to a podcast where I interview anyone who promotes the DIY ethic from musicians and filmmakers to record label owners and activists. I've been a punk rock radio DJ for 16 years now. Sometimes I DJ out at bars too. I end up at local shows a few times per month.

I am vegan, but I am not snobby about it...unless you rub it in my face, and then I will be forced to quote facts and figures to you. None of us want that.

If you are a liberal and want to talk politics we may very well become best friends. I consider myself an activist. I also consider myself a feminist, so if you think Feminism is a bad word, you probably want to look elsewhere.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a professor, non-profit director, and I run my own business helping artists, filmmakers, and independent businesses. One day I will finally write the book I have been outlining for a few years now.

Six things I could never do without
I don't think there are really six things that I could do without, as they are merely possessions, but I would prefer not to do without the following:
1) My Camera
2) Educated political discussion
3) Live concerts
4) My radio show/podcast
5) My headphones
6) My laptop
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the fate of the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably out at a local concert or at a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is whatever you might be interested in knowing...
You should message me if
You want to get to know me better. Basically i am looking for someone to hang out with, have a good time, talk, go to shows, movies, whatever. I get along pretty well with everybody. I enjoy an intelligent conversation, but being too serious all the time can just be a drag.
The two of us
