I’m an optimist and I try to see the best in people and meet people where they are. (Sometimes dehumanizing discourses can be too exhausting, though.) I live my life with as much love and tenderness as I possibly can.
For pictures I use my Samsung Galaxy or my Nikon D5100. For film pictures I use a tiny point-and-shoot I’ve had since I was 8 years old. Here is my photography portfolio.
I’m going to school in North Carolina for Biological Engineering and maybe picking up minors in Biomanufacturing and Physics. I went to McGill for a year and am in Montreal as often as possible.
I would like to go into research or manufacturing, especially in pharmaceuticals, food enzymes, or applied biophysics. I’ve done research on industrial psychology in nuclear power plants(why people mess up and radiate whole cities by accident) and conformational DNA dynamics (how DNA bends and moves especially when it’s trapped in tiny spaces). Right now I’m doing a statistics project on how much gender and sexuality affect response rates to personal ads on Craigslist (unsurprisingly, lots).
I currently work as an art assistant / shipper for The Aster Gallery and as an audiobook proofreader for Archangel Ink.
This blog hosts my photography, music, and other assorted art projects. I have another tumblr called 15r14 for reblogging things other people make. Find pictures of me here.
I play music under the name Empty Disco and do the art for Mq. & Mrs., a weekly queer/trans coloring book. I run a small zine distro and trans health supply in Raleigh called Do Yr Dishes Distro.
I’m a white, queer, agender person— dyadic, femme, and mostly able-bodied (I’m visually impaired and have chronic anemia.) I’m working on deconstructing oppressive systems in my heart and in my life and I’m super open to criticism on that front.
So John and Sarah Urist Green misgendered me and used my birth name in a video which is like… ugh, but I also emailed with Sarah a couple years ago with my old name so I’m not going to get mad about it. (Thanks to Jacob for the head’s up though!)
I thought it was pretty obvious from my blog what people are supposed to call me, but I decided I should do an About Me page with it spelled out SUPER CLEARLY just in case. So here are a bunch of random facts about me and my projects.
