The Basics





About Me

About Me

I’m an American currently living in London and doing my master’s in the study of religions (focusing in South Asian Islam.) Some of my interests are: otters, tea, Buffy, lesbians, the Catholic Worker movement, and constantly asserting my need to “figure my life out” but not actually doing it.

Check All That Apply

Lesbian, Queer

Relationship Status



empathy, having an encyclopedic knowledge of useless information



Are You Out To Your....
