I'm a vegetarian, a socialist, and a pet lover (I have a cat at home)
I currently work with a Philadelphia based group who document and discuss collaborative artistic practice. Right now we are participants in a citywide art show between several art collectives and artist-run spaces across the city.
I'm also very involved with a group called the Young Democratic Socialists of America, where I serve as the LGBTQ Coordinator.
Other than that I have a talent for remembering useless information and forgetting anything pertinent. Ex: Hey, did you know William and Elizabeth Marston, the creators of Wonder Woman, had an open marriage? Wait....where the fuck are my keys?

Mysteries of the Organism, Pink Flamingos, Serial Mom, Dark Blue Almost Black
I've been reading mostly political stuff lately, but fictionwise I love Etgar Keret and Dorothy Parker. I'm really starting to get into Barbara Gowdy. I also enjoy Sophie Calle, a writer and artist.
Lately I've been reading Erich Fromm and Marshall Berman, in terms of political stuff. Michael Harrington is always good, of course. Studs Terkel is sort of an influence on my artistic practice.
Favorite artists (since they don't ask): Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Barbara Hammer, Paul Chan, Laurie Anderson, Guy Ben-Ner, Shirin Neshat, Miranda July, Yoko Ono, Kara Crombie, and Nina Katchadourian
I'm vegetarian and pretty open to try new veg-friendly places. I have a soft spot in my heart for New Harmony, but I end up eating TBMs at Cosi...a lot.

Although I'm an atheist, I regularly attend a Quaker meetinghouse. I like how it allows me to clear time to reflect and consider the world around me. I don't think I would describe myself as a Quaker off the bat, but atheist Quakers do exist.
