I grew up in Memphis, Tennessee, and in rural Northwest Georgia. I moved to Northern California for school and (except for a few years in Berlin and Vienna) stayed on doing theater, writing poetry, and working in the tech industry. Now I am working on my doctorate in sociology at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.
I like most kinds of music. (I have earphones so I don't inflict any on undesiring others!) I am mostly vegetarian, though I do sometimes eat fish. I love animals, but unfortunately they set off my allergies; I don't smoke and don't breathe well around smoke. I like reading, though most of my reading time right now is for school. I love oceans, mountains, forests, and gardens. I highly value a clean, quiet, safe place to stay when I travel (and I wash my own dishes and clean up after myself when I cook).
I like meeting new, friendly people.
