My self-summary
I just moved to Chicago, so I'm meeting people here and exploring the city. I majored in Creative Writing in college, and now I'm here for a training program on how to build apps and websites.

Each day, another piece of my soul is transmuted into sweet, shiny tech bubble gold!
What I’m doing with my life
Right now, I mostly spend my days migrating between various coffeeshops and libraries, studying for the course I'm in.

I want to use tech to help make life easier for people working in community organizing projects, social work settings and non-profits. So I'm keeping my eyes open for ways apps might be useful in those areas.

I expect to get involved in some volunteering and activist work as I get to know the city better. For now I'm getting settled in, and I've gone to some meet-ups and events.
I’m really good at
Humility! There is literally no one else at my level of grounded and realistic self-appraisal.
The first things people usually notice about me
My brown t-shirt, black jacket and crooked glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Shows: Arrested Development, The Walking Dead, Mr. Show, Carnivale, It's Always Sunny, Community, Breaking Bad, Dexter, Battlestar Galactica, Parks and Recreation.

The six things I could never do without
-Kindle app
-Netflix
-My unquenchable rage against arbitrarily numbered lists, born from the same dark trauma that has driven me to a life of vigilante justice
-S'mores
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The web development stuff I'm studying, and the various ways it can be applied to socially relevant contexts.

And I like to learn about alternative political traditions, especially democratic grassroots social movements like the Zapatistas.
On a typical Friday night I am
kicking ass and politely requesting appellations! And studying.
