Who am I (and who are we really)?

The latter’s answer remains in flux, a consistent unknown in an inconsistent world. As to the former: at this moment in time, I am a twentysomething trying to find a place in the world, as most twentysomethings are wont to do. Currently, I’m a field segment producer for Shed Media, creating the newest season of Supernanny.

During my time at Pomona College, the greatest school in the world, I focused on political theory, reading lots of Tocqueville, with a big side helping of literature and philosophy. I wrote my senior thesis, Alexis in America, on the intersection of political culture and fairytales—the Grimm Brothers, their Disney counterparts, and so on. You can read a write-up about it here and someday you’ll be able to read it as a real physical book.

Topics I’m interested in include public transportation, the idea of “home” and “America”, modernism, anti-gentrification efforts, and living ethically under capitalism (an impossible task). I like to think about how the culture we consume (in)explicitly shapes our world, and of course I am tormented daily by thoughts of climate change.

What I’m trying to convey to you is that I am a giant nerd. But in, like, a cool way.

In conclusion: thank you for stumbling into my small corner of the Internet. I look forward to our long and fruitful friendship or the inevitable banishment of our existence to the abyss—whichever comes first.
