I am a science PhD student and teaching assistant, an activist and street medic, a LARPer, a geek. Runner and cyclist, of a sort. Social-democrat-ish. Feminist, queer. Former researcher at government contractors. Anti-Zionist Jewish atheist. Occupier (as in Occupy Wall Street), then, now, and always. Love Babylon 5 and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, among many others. As you might be able to guess if you recognize my pseudonym, I also love Garth Nix’s Old Kingdom trilogy.
