My signature aesthetic is shirt on top of other shirt.

About Me

I developed a sense of humor as a defense mechanism so when a bear attacks me, I think, “Be charming.”

A stranger just asked me if I have any “Molly.” I don’t, and never will, but still...pretty cool.


If I worked at Starbucks, I would spell people’s names correctly, but I would fill their cups with pasta.

I prefer to save up my dignity and then lose it all at once.
