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, I studied politics, focusing on political theory and my great love, Alexis de Tocqueville. 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.

Topics I’m interested in include public transportation, the idea of “home” and “America”, modernism, prison abolition, anti-gentrification efforts, and living ethically under capitalism (an impossible task). I love literature, 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.

All this to say: 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.
