What I Do, Job-wise:  Edit and write about various progressive issues. I'm also the Queer Studies Editor here at xoJane!

What I Do, Fun-wise: I’m currently in training to be Chicago’s slowest, saddest half-marathoner. I also bottle-feed baby woodland creatures while they're still vaguely horrifying, take improv and burlesque classes, work on my punching form, write erotic poetry about stone fruit and eat more burritos than most people.

My Motto: “Just watched Casablanca. They could’ve just had a threesome and solved everything. People are dumb.”

My Anti-Motto: “Horses sweat, men perspire, and women glow.”

The First Movie Star I Ever Had A Crush On: Catherine Zeta-Jones in Chicago

My “Celebs to Make out with” List: Retta, Jenny Lewis, Emma Stone, Nicki Minaj, Andrew Garfield, Jad Abumrad, Matt Smith, Dylan O'Brien, Donald Glover, Greta Salpeter, Mike Birbiglia, Jonathan Toews

The Most Played Song On My iTunes: “Going to Port Washington,” The Mountain Goats

Last Book I Read Without Skimming Any Parts: A Single Man, by Christopher Isherwood

My Most Worn Item of Clothing: Shiny silver moon boot high-tops from Buffalo Exchange

Beauty Products That I Hoard: Sephora lipstick in "Passion Red" that I am forever losing

I smell like:  Deodorant and "Jezebel" by Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab

I Have Faked An Orgasm (Yes/No):  No, but I have pretended that a dude was Captain Kirk in order to get there.
