My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Alright, I'm gonna update this silly profile. When I first started dating after a 10yr partnership and two kids, a person I briefly dated told me I would become jaded with okc. I laughed and said never! Newly single, I felt liberated, so happy. Two years later, after a really short but sweet 1 yr relationship, a couple traveling adventures, and some pretty cool interesting people I've met, I wouldn't say I'm jaded, but...haha. This is definitely an interesting social experiment. I guess I am negotiating the space between parenthood, dating and taking my time getting to know people and a fulfilling, lasting connection. I am happily busy with my two daughters, but am also dedicated to my own experiences. I thoroughly enjoy being self employed and spending time on creative projects in dance, choreography and performance. I make my living teaching people how to connect and move more freely in their bodies.
I find myself shifting from very pragmatic, organized alignment fundamentals and biomechanics at work, to emotional, freeflowing and sometimes aggressive dance in my free time.
I often think up small inventions that would help in my work environment. I'm also thinking about how people can find small ways to move their body throughout the day. I'm inspired by the older chinese lady holding onto a stop sign to do her stretches.
I began meditating about a year ago and have been slowly grounding through that and finding a lot of comfort and satisfaction in that quiet, still place. I see it as similar to dance, there is a simultaneous letting go and focus.
I would enjoy meeting a single dad who can relate to me as a parent. I'm also open to just going out and having some fun and meeting some one kind and funny. If you are interested in joining me to go see art, dance, music, hiking, yoga or eating great food send me a message.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I see my life in chapters and think about what I want to be manifesting. Artistic collaborations, honing my choreographic voice and deepening my connection to my body are central right now. I'm also working on my house, trying to save money to make repairs and cleaning out 13 yrs of stuff. I am not a hoarder!! But I do fantasize about empty spaces and sparse drawers and cabinets. Mind you, two children keep this fantasy in check. I'm thinking about how to travel with and without my kids and how to create more passive income so I can focus on creative projects vs. pragmatic work hours teaching.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Improvising. Knowing 24 hour karma will bite me in the ass. Finding parking. Suggesting ways for people connect with their bodies. Making people laugh. Making a mess with my kids. Tuning out a mess before I am able to deal with it. Procrastinating, thinking the rules don't apply to me, which is not necessarily a good thing... Having long term dreams and goals and making them happen.

Skatalites, Booker T., Grateful Dead, English Beat, One of the best shows I saw was Public Enemy and Sonic Youth playing at the Catalyst in Santa Cruz, go figure. Oh I saw the Knitters there too, reminisce...I also like Jazz, classical, experimental noise, too much to list! Like walking to The Chapel in my neighborhood, Brick and Mortar, new Parish and Leo's (love the wood paneling).

Movies: Hedwig and the Angry Inch, all Hiyao Miyazake Films, Wes Anderson, Sophia Coppola, Coen Brothers, Grind House, Party Girl, Young Adult, I like movies at the Embarcadero. Don't seem to have time to watch tv but I enjoyed Arrested Development, Raising Hope, Dailey Show, Louis Ck. I like checking out City Arts and Lectures, listen to kqed,like radio lab show. Recently geeked out and saw Kai Rysdall of Marketplace at the Commonwealth.
It's amazing how many cool things, people, venues we have here, hooray.
Also, If you are on the pulse of interesting offbeat movies I would love to be taken to some.

Food: I like almost all good food (opinion) as long as it tastes good (opinion) and doesn't have knuckles or sinew... I worked in the restaurant business for a bit and I really like not paying for food. Ah, those days are over. I have been vegetarian, vegan, and pescatarian. I admire those who are able to put their politics where their mouth is and still get proper nutrition. For me, I just seem to need to eat the meat. Though I don't take a Portlandia approach to chicken, I try to be mindful of what I'm eating without being elitist or forgetting the inherent privilege that comes with being so choosy and spending so much. I am humble and grateful I can choose.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going to a performance, meeting friends, noodling in my studio, going out to listen to music. Or spending the evening with my kids and other families.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have 9 fingers. OK I just feel weird writing this so i guess that would conjure a sense of privacy revealed? Actually, this missing finger became a huge attraction for children at Camp Mather last year, so the entertainment factor was pleasing.
