What Should I Be?:
I always wanted to be a rock star. Doesn't everyone?
How I Fixed My Identity?:
I started out uncoordinated, so I learned mime! I was sexually insecure, so I played rugby! My parents were Republican, so I became a Democrat! God knows how many religions I tried! The most important thing is travel - everytime I leave the country, I feel like I can make up my identity all over again!
When I was a kid we got two magazines delivered to our house: National Review and Ebony.
Historian: I was a historian from a young age. It made me anxious that I would miss out on making history. Historic preservation let me do both!
