My self-summary
Andro genderqueer dyke person prone to episodes of dancing in grocery stores. Tendency to get lost in all sorts of places (like the supermarket, new neighborhoods, my own neighborhood, the bathroom when I accidentally turn the lights off before unlocking the door, my own head, etc). Painfully sentimental. Cursed with not being able to be unkind even when it's warranted. Pretends to be cool but is not really that cool actually. Shamelessly dedicated to making a fool of myself and enjoying my own company/laughing at my own dad jokes/using self deprecating humor as a positive reframing tool. Lover of words and loving with words. MAJORLY SAPPY ARTSY POET TYPE. Embodiment of various midtown queer clichés- ie guitar player, spoken word artist, American Spirit smoker, IPA drinker, etc. Communication addict with alternative lifestyle and alternative lifestyle haircut to match.

Pronouns are they/them or he/him.. every once in a while I'll get a bee in my bonnet and have a "she" moment though. It's all pretty fluid though. A grey zone of fuckery, if you will.
What I’m doing with my life
Being queer and polyamorous and artsy and kinky and folding laundry and forming opinions about important social issues.

Starting grad school for marriage and family therapy with the eventual goal of becoming a licensed sex therapist.

Making an intentional commitment to setting out on more bay area adventures. I have a special kind of love for Sacramento but I feel the need to mix things up a bit and broaden some horizons.

You can find me all over the Sacramento grid performing songs or poetry, participating in some community event, or just gallivanting around.
Also karaoke. You can often find me there, too :D
