I'm equally at home in a leather jacket as I am in a suit and tie and I'm a lover of art photography, a frequent improviser and an infrequent stand-up comic.
I'm a fan of vintage anything, especially the 1930s through the 1960s. I get really excited anytime I see weathered bits of old ads painted on brick walls or spot neon signs that are older than my parents. I used to run an interior design blog.
Politics are important to me. I'm very liberal, and a radical trans-inclusive intersectional feminist. My dream job is to take over for Jon Stewart, but only if I could do it in Los Angeles.
I work some mornings at a pizza place and some evenings at another restaurant, so I'm very busy.
This last fall, I volunteered at my old high school another six days a week as a debate coach, and I love how I'm able to really help students at the age that I think is most important for future success.
Outside of work/volunteering, I take improv classes and try to do a bit of writing and photo editing.
Working on my Ira Glass impression, and a couple of scripts for pilots. If you like Psych! or The Prisoner, these are in similar veins.
I'm saving up for law school.
I spend an absolutely ludicrous amount of time on tumblr looking at art photography and vintage ephemera. Ask for my url if you're interested
"You look a lot like Adam Savage from Mythbusters"
"You look kinda like Mike Fotis"
I've got awesome glasses, I have a beard that can get pretty majestic, and odds are I'm carrying their lunch or dinner
I'm more likely to read an interesting article in the New Yorker or The Atlantic than a book, but I liked The Little Prince, The Great Gatsby, Of Mice and Men, Pedro Paramo, and anything Mary Roach ever authored.

I make a decent Pad Thai, and I love Italian and Indian. I grew up eating comfort food, thick soups and buttery cookies, and I like to think that I've only improved on my mother's cooking.
Nedroid. Reginald is a form of me.
A laptop with internet
Deep and meaningful conversations
My camera (Rebel XTI)
My notebook of ideas
How easy or difficult it would be to become a conceptual artist, and the genius of Ed Ruscha
Wondering where to get 120 Film developed
I'm either spending time with friends and a good beer or two or on stage doing improv.
I think Mary Lucia is the bomb
Do you consider yourself a feminist?
Does the phrase 'mid-century modern' mean anything to you?
Have you ever had the urge to dance in a coffee shop just because a good song was playing there? Do you still think Lego are cool?
Also, can you teach me how to use a twin lens reflex camera?
