My self-summary
I read. A lot. I geek out on detective novels and old sci-fi. I take photographs and am a freelance illustrator. I like Dr. House and Bobby Goren. I like the Smothers Brothers, the Chambers Brothers, and Tom Waits. I like going out dancing, going to museums, and I'm currently teaching myself hand lettering and brush calligraphy. I read only the best webcomics and only the very best actual comics (Transmetropolitan is my all-time fav, and I'm loving Saga and Sex Criminals) I'm not one of those people who doesn't watch TV because I'm "living my life." I can quote Mitch Hedberg with annoying accuracy.

Greg Proops is my fucking hero and if you're not listening to his podcast you're missing out. I met him this summer. We talked about Sherlock Holmes.

I sing in an all-female barbershop quartet.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a graphic designer currently working as an art director at an ad agency. I'm writing a novel. I think a lot about embarrassing things i've done in the past. On the side I take, edit, and sell photography and illustrate and design things like children's products and magazine covers.

Find me at http://www.jeepsterdesign.com
I’m really good at
Photoshop; the Sunday NY Times Crossword Puzzle; water bending; karaoke; liquid eyeliner.
The first things people usually notice about me
Im not sure. What could I possibly say here that wouldn't make me sound like a douche?

If it's summertime people tend to notice my Rolleiflex tattoo and my Sherlock Holmes tattoo. And when I get my Moomin tattoo I'm sure they'll notice that as well.

Edit: got my Moomin tattoo. It's cute af.

The six things I could never do without
Photoshop, my mother, Radiolab, my Rolleiflex TLR, my cat, cartoons
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Tattoos I'm going to get. How to afford a Hasselblad. Shit I heard on Radiolab that blew my mind, making out with Mads Mikkelsen, nail art, politics, feminism.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having an action-movie marathon, out dancing to Common People by Pulp, singing Meatloaf at kareoke, playing board games, or playing "erotic photo hunt" at a dive bar. Or, lately, re watching Hannibal. Holy fuck that show is good.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I write erotic fanfiction.
You should message me if
None of the above makes you want to throw up in your mouth.

Also if you have a pot belly, or plan to grow a pot belly.

Also also: if you're passionate about the things that are important to you. If you're a feminist, interested in progressive politics, or art, history, literature, words, music, or looking for a cooking or writing partner.

Also also also if you want to play Cribbage, Hearts, Settlers of Catan, MTG, or Cards Against Humanity with me.

Also if you want to be part of my queer, intersectional feminist girl gang. We're gonna wear personalized matching jackets and fight crime.

Also if you have a good horror podcast recommendation.
