I'm from New Orleans, specifically Treme. After spending two years working on various political campaigns and for social justice organizations (NAACP and the Southern Poverty Law Center), I'm starting grad school in the Fall. I will be studying investigative journalism at Columbia.
Things I love:
working for all sorts of social justice from voting rights to food justice,
getting to know new people,
talking to people for hours over wine,
NPR (I want Ira Glass and Terry Gross to adopt me),
Coffee (huge stumptown fan, but love trying regional brews),
Fiction (right now I'm particularly into recent fiction like Nicole Krauss's The History of Love)
