San Francisco; 7 years in the industry


What is your current state of mind?



What is your favorite word?



What is your *least* favorite word?



What turns you on?

David Bowie circa Labyrinth (RiP).


What turns you off?

Meninists and likeminded ignorance.


What sound or noise do you love?

Sounds my cats make.



Fred, looking quite regal & somewhat bothered.


What sound or noise do you loathe?

Distant trains in the middle of the night. Seriously STFU I can not sleep!


What profession (other than your own) would you like to attempt?

Cosmotology. I enjoy doing my nails, trying new make up and coloring my hair. Seems like it would have been a good fit had I not gone down this road.


What profession would you *not* like to do?

Tech. It's completely meaningless and ruining our lives (especially in the Bay).


If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?

Clicking his tongue/teeth while he makes finger guns at me letting me know I didn't f*&! up too much and lets me in.


What is your idea of perfect happiness?

Couch, food, cats, tv binging, nap, repeat.


What are you most afraid of?

Being evicted and priced out of my home (Bay Area) because of tech bros.

My psychological strength and endurance.

My cat Fred.

Purity. No slut shaming allowed.


What is your most luxurious extravagance?

I am pretty practical. I guess my wedding dress? Wedding ring? Things like that? I have a lot of fancy booze in my house I don't drink? My most luxurious are obvi my cats, have you seen them?! But those are necessities so...


On what occasion do you lie?

When the truth doesn't benefit the person being lied to. Like telling a child their goldfish died when you could just replace it and save the kid the unnecessary grief.

insane. In a good way? That I'm loud, talk a lot, but I'm also a problem solver and a do-er.

My grandma whale arms! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
