Me sitting on a fallen tree somewhere in a Washington forest

A few of my favorite things: hiking, trees, and my camera.

I'm a UX Designer working at The Trevor Project. I also write a philosophy newsletter called, Lazy Philosophy.

According to 16Personalities, I'm a "Mediator" or INFP. I think the following Mediator description accurately summarizes how I operate:

“Mediator personalities are true idealists, always looking for the hint of good in even the worst of people and events, searching for ways to make things better. While they may be perceived as calm, reserved, or even shy, Mediators have an inner flame and passion that can truly shine.”

Mediators are also, apparently, known to be poets and authors; and while I haven’t written any books yet, I do enjoy reading quite a bit. I love asking people what they've read or learned lately. In case you're the same way, I keep a running list of books I'm reading and have finished. Feel free to add a comment with any recommendations! 🤓
