Sophie Trauberman just sold her machete and skipped town from Portland, Oregon. She is happiest when she is exploring the (she thinks not-so-solid) boundary between institutional organizing//community organizing//life organizing and art-making. Her ~academic~ background is in aesthetics, postmodern social theory, and 20th century american history. Her ~non-academic~ background is in meeting facilitation, event organizing, gamelan music, baking, landscaping, and having strong opinions. Sophie loves to garden, sing karaoke, fry eggs, dance, and support U.
