In real life I…
Am the Communications Assistant for the Arts at MIT (follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Soundcloud, YouTube, etc., but not Google + I’m trying to phase that nonsense out. I also enjoy giving my unsolicited opinion on most things, particularly things I don’t understand fully.
Favorite pump up Jamz:
1st I listen to Don’t Rain on My Parade by Barbra Streisand then I listen to Rebel Girl by Bikini Kill. In general “nothing pumps me up quite like Barbara Streisand”
What is one thing you think you are the best at compared to everyone else on the team?
Making beds, probably. Making people feel unwelcome because of the way my face looks.
What’s your favorite non-Patagonia clothing brand?
Whatever your strung out art teacher from high school is wearing, I want it.
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be an architect until my dad warned me that you have to be good at math.
