About Me

Hello! I'm living in Boston MA with my awesome roommate (https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/gahrace/references) and my awesome cat. I work at an ocean education nonprofit and a local bike shop, and I organize with a women's cycling and social justice organization called Femmechanics. I'm also queer and give preference to queer/trans folks and POC.


I like to ride and fix bikes, hike, swim in unusual places, play music, and explore the city via food and drinks and music.

Also queer, anti-racist, anti-capitalist, feminist things.
