A. Jordan Lambert

I was born in the late 1980’s to a fashion designer/theologian mother and Poseidon off of the coast of California. I was raised in a suburb of Los Angeles and grew up on fairy tales, museums, theme parks, classic literature, pulp movies, The Cure, and mismatched Chuck Taylors. I won my first writing award as a pre-teen. My educational background was devoted to the arts and the media; I’ve got a Bachelor of Arts in Directing Theater and a Master of Arts in Media Studies. I’m a Jane of all trades and a master of none, and yes - I’m oftentimes better than a master of one.

Call me Q. I read books way more than I talk to people- I'm working on it. I love cartoons and practicing my twerk face (with the tongue out!) in the bathroom mirror. I write a lot about humans and our connection to Other, but I also stuff my face with Kit Kats and Lays and NEVER go to the gym, so who says I'm an expert on anything? And, hey, I treat my Instagram like Snapchat, but you can still follow me there @waitfortheq.
