Hey, I'm Cayden!
Oakland, California, United States · Member since July 2012

I'm a media artist, technologist, & community organizer based out of Oakland. I like visual culture, cleaning up, cooking food, transformative justice, cats, dressing well, bicycles, and video games. I am a trans masculine person with a commitment to decolonizing masculinity and caring for other people and the world in a way that makes me more human.

My Day Job: I work for a racial justice nonprofit as the new media director. It's a really great job where I get to translate my organizing skills and technical skills into making the world a more just, loving place. My coworkers are the best, and while sometimes it's hard being a part of a three-person team, the work makes me feel amazing and I learn so much every day.

Other Stuff I Do: I help coordinate the Allied Media Conference. I'm a founding staff member at {young}ist, a young-people-powered journalism startup. I like to read books, think about big ideas, and write about how technology changes our sociality. (I am neither a technoutopian nor a Luddite.) Lately I have been playing a lot of Total War: Shogun II.

My Airbnb Style: I like checking out new places, and I am often traveling in a group for some project I'm working on. I am a bit of an introvert but people also find me funny, fun, and curious about life and other people. For all my high-energy style, I get up early, go to bed early, and value my solo downtime. I am interested in meeting you and talking about the world. I will take you out for a drink or coffee or bring you a flower.
