I'm just trying to be the best Amber that I can be in this mixed up world. I hold a lot of things dear: unusually flavored soda, hot tea, old movie theaters, A Secret History, John Cusack films, my mom's David Bowie records, boys who get my jokes, and a comfy pair of socks. I've decided not to include a bunch of shmaltzy adjectives that best describe me. I like myself, you may or may not like me, and all that jazz. I will say I'm guilty of being impulsive, and I'm a little nuts, but nuts isn't all bad!
I obtained an AA from Seattle Central with a focus on English Literature and Political Science. I graduated from the UW with a degree in Independent Filmmaking. I just finished working as a canvasser for abortion rights with NARAL, and now I work at Siren BookStrand, a romance novel publisher.
I moved to Austin about a year ago- my best friends live in Austin, but that's only part of the reason I moved here- I visited them when they first moved here and fell in love with the music and film scene- not to mention the Eastside Showroom, the Alamo Drafthouse, and weather that doesn't make me feel like a salmon in a sweater.
