A writer with a penchant for dramatic overstatement, is who. Product designer by day, writer by night, activist by…dusk? I commute by train and sometimes I design protest signs, is what I'm saying.
First story: a novel grown out of a short story that started as a wedding gift for two friends of mine, to make him keep his promise to change his legal name to include her last name, as she was taking his. Gender equality literally ended up being an inspiration for this book, and I'm okay with that.
Oh, right, the usual: "I like fun activities, going outside, hiking or camping or swimming, doing brunch with friends!"
It's not a dating profile without some clichés, eh?
I make a solid cocktail. I cook decent food. I can tell you five things poorly designed about any product. (Aside: don't get me started on that, I'm not kidding.) I'm intensely passionate about anything I really care about: I'll learn all the ins & outs of it, master the new skill to a humblebraggable level of competency, and move on to the next thing. No, I don't treat people that way. Yes, I think that was a fair concern to have.
I envy anything either Nolan brother creates, while delighting in everything Rachel Bloom ever does. And like millions, I have a crush on Lin-Manuel Miranda, and his genius inspires me to do better. Talk to me about Project Runway, or UnREAL, or Brooklyn 99, or Jessica Jones/Luke Cage. Why so contemporary? You tell me. Let's chat over coffee, see what we uncover about the world.
Clearly you should date me.
…your interest is piqued, and you'd like to share what parts of this profile made you raise an eyebrow.
…the word “feminist” isn't a special appeal to you, but a baseline expectation.
…you agree that gender roles are outdated and men shouldn't have to make first contact necessarily anymore.
…you felt like saying hi to me despite the mediocrity of this profile. Ideally, my response would include more than a mere "hello" back, but that's really up to you, innit?
