I love trusting conversations about the events and goals and feelings that matter to the people I care about. I love how that lets us truly see one another.
At my birthday last year, friends shared their first impression of me. Several recalled me welcoming them to Mission Control and showing them around. They thought I was a host. It shattered my self-image in a good way -- I actually welcome people to overcome shyness.
When I read, I love exploring ideas more deeply than necessary. I'm currently reading a book on the origins and money and debt, and how each grew from the other. Before that I read about how cooking influenced human evolution. Seeing the connections in the world fascinates me.
I've been teaching since age 14. First martial arts (I'm very good at defeating wooden boards), later jewelry making, swing dance, biofield healing, and computer security. Teaching is a sacred relationship for me.
I identify as polyamorous. I prefer a small number of close relationships.
I'm a consent-focused top-leaning switch. If you know what that means, awesome. If not, don't worry about it.
