All of this comes at the end of 23 years of living in New York City, finishing a master's degree in Asian studies, in which I wrote my thesis about Westerners who've become Korean shamans, and a long stint as a corporate person at Google, where I did nothing all that exciting. But hey, Google.
I want to meet and connect on the way. I believe in intimacy, open hearts, exploration, juiciness. I want to form genuine, deep connections, though I know they might be fleeting. That feeling of being vulnerable and open and totally in love? Yeah, that.
Backstory: I grew up in Northern California, the child of hippies who became Orthodox Jews. I came to New York for college, and I stayed. After college, I went to India and Nepal for four months, and a few years later I taught English for a year in Korea, then went back to India and Nepal for six months. I'm excited to get out into the wider world again.
