Name Mills Baker
Location San Francisco
First Post November 2007
Mills’ writing inspires many adjectives — intelligent, insightful, and beautiful among them — but one quickly gets the feeling that, rather than compliments, his true reward is in helping readers notice something amusing about the world that they didn’t see before. Born in New Orleans, he attended Bard College and Louisiana State University. Mills recently moved to San Francisco, which he described “as though New Orleans and New York were smashed together and then placed just so in a beautiful expanse of nature.” He writes about what it’s like to be human — love, art, culture, mental illness, philosophy, and memory, among other topics. He has two awesome dogs named Bayou and Five and a girlfriend he met on Tumblr.
