I grew up on a commune outside Cave Junction, OR. I am a watermelon eating champion (x2). I went to undergrad at Loyola University, New Orleans, where I majored in History and Political Science. Since then, I've lived in Southern California, North Carolina, and Southern Florida.

I'm also a really big fan of gifs and was really excited when my friend Bas van Doorn made this gif of me. You are welcome.

I am married to Zachary Danner. We like to travel, eat delicious food, attend concerts, and explore the best city in the world, New Orleans! In my spare time, I tweet about Women and Politics, read, fight the patriarchy, cook, and hang out with my dogs and cat. I'm a founding member of the #FeministMafia.
