I live in Oakland with my partner Hank and my dog Baxter -- a Humane Society rescue.
I'm a Campaign Manager with CREDO Action, a division of CREDO Mobile. (Previously, our company was known as Working Assets -- perhaps you had our long distance service when that was still a thing?) We're a cell phone company that donates part of our revenue to progressive non-profits and organizations. I specifically do email campaigning for progressive causes, to try and defeat the Tea Party, protect the social safety net, and expanding equality for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender people.
I've only lived in the Bay Area for a few months, but I already love it. Previously, I lived in DC and worked for the Progressive Change Campaign Committee (the folks who "drafted' Elizabeth Warren to run for Senate, and raised over a million dollars for her campaign to defeat Scott Brown), and before that I lived in Los Angeles for four years.
I went to Hendrix College, which is an incredibly liberal small college in Conway, Arkansas. I've worked at Walt Disney World, traveled to Europe (castles & cathedrals!), and been to over 40 states in the continental US.
I love to read, and I'm an avid Star Trek fan. Geeky fact: I run one of the oldest online Star Trek collaborative fiction groups. (Think of it like Dungeons and Dragons for Star Trek.) My favorite TV shows are currently Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, and Downton Abbey. My favorite music artists are Alanis Morissette, Tori Amos, Madonna, M83, Loreena McKennitt, and Florence + the Machine.
