Here are the basics:
I’m an Informatics PhD Student,
at the University of California, Irvine,
working with Stacy Branham in the INSīT Lab.

These are the nuances:
I’m a card-carrying Pragmatist but only sometimes pragmatic,
significantly worse than my mother at using social media,
50% Midwestern, 50% Southern, and 100% into saturated fats.

And the unusuals:
I’m a connoisseur of objectively terrible music,
often wonder if I’m too old to resurrect my pink mohawk,
and learned most of my jokes from drag queens. 🏳️‍🌈
