Hey! I’m Bridget and I live and work in DC, where the things I mostly like to talk about are art, activism, athletics, alcohol, and my anxiety disorder.
Just kidding, that’s not my whole bio. To elaborate:
art. I have a BA in theatre with a focus in stage management and an MA in arts administration with a focus in marketing. I work for a nonprofit called Americans for the Arts, where I oversee marketing and engagement strategies for members and prospective members across the country, who are working to advance the arts in America. I create mostly in mixed media and digital mediums, and try to see as much contemporary visual and performing art as I can. I also serve on the board of governors of Pointless Theatre Company, a group that devises work focused on movement, music, puppetry, and spectacle.
activism. I raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association by playing (mostly linebacker) for Team Brunette in the annual Blondes vs Brunettes DC flag football game. I’ve raised nearly $10,000 for the cause and co-chaired a season. I donate time and money to: the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, the Human Rights Campaign, the National Immigration Law Center, and 350.org — and I write action alerts for a group of about 300 friends and family members about a number of progressive causes.
athletics. That is a very obnoxious way to say I love sports, but I couldn’t resist the alliterative opportunity presented to me. My top ten favorite sports, in order, are: pro football, college football, hockey, men’s college basketball, roller derby, baseball, women’s college basketball, rugby, arena football, and pro basketball. I’m a DC fan across the board, a Terp for life, and would really appreciate it if the Washington football team would change its name.
alcohol. This is mostly a joke, but I love a good brunch and a good hefeweizen, and I am interested in discussing those things with you.
anxiety. I’m diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I am whatever the opposite of embarrassed is about it and it’s woven into most of my narrative at some point.
