I have an old soul, and old taste- "classic", as I like to say.
I'm a whiskey lass. I take it neat. Caol Ila, if you have it. I love an old fashioned and a gin mule. Coffee, if it's early in the day. I'll take a cuppa Philz, Blue Bottle, or Sightglass.
I'm a Bay Area native, and have lived here most of my life except for my years of college in Boston and Kansas City, Missouri. I loved Boston and miss it dearly; and yes, Missouri was quite the culture shock, and quite the learning experience, and quite the comedy of errors.
If I know anything about myself it is that I am perhaps too good to the ones I love-if shit goes down with someone I love I won't hesitate to put my life on hold to be there for them. The people I love always come first in my life, and I if I am anything I'm a damn good friend.
I dream big, live passionately, am chronically curious, and have a strong-somewhat dominant-personality. I have a remarkable capacity for empathy and love, and a charming use of self-deprecating humor. I value these last two traits in myself above all others.
I plan to travel through and live in as many places on earth as possible. Really, I feel it is a crime against creation to live on this earth and not at least try to explore as much of it as you can (provided you have the means, of course). I've covered Europe and The States. Central and South America are next on my list. I'm taking my violin students to Honduras this July. Maybe it'll start a tradition and we'll keep bopping about the globe handing out free instruments and lessons and food and water...
