What I’m doing with my life
Loving it. I am a co-active coach. I support people who feel that they are stuck in destructive cycles create a free and vibrant life. I am doing so many other things as well: gardening; farmer's marketing and cooking; designing and building things; spending as much time in really hot spring water as needed and desired; soaking in nature; focusing on expanding my own awareness, knowledge and consciousness; being in the moment; engaging with those that I love.
I’m really good at
writing way too much on this profile, evidently. I'll keep this one short.
The first things people usually notice about me
is my dynamic open-hearted way of relating with everyone around me.

open to the flow. Sometimes I am dancing until after last call. Other evenings, I am relaxing at home and cooking a fine meal and going to bed with a book or a movie, and others embarking on an exquisite weekend adventure.
