My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am invested in living my life as an unfolding myth. I am wholly taken with the arts of self-transformation, and love spending time with similarly intense, creative people. I have a wanderer's spirit that I have grounded and transmuted and tend to journey more inwardly than I do around the world. I have deeply political values, and center my work around issues of freedom of self-expression, and emancipation. I am a quintessential quadruple virgo in my unflinching love of being pure-of-heart, yet I could care less about spending my free time dust-bustering the fridge :). I I am more interested in people, direct communication, and intimate stories than I am in just about anything else. And yes, I'm unapologetically eccentric, and hope you are too :).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work full time on an inpatient psychiatric unit as a drama therapist, which in part means that I spend my time holding the stories of, and wholeheartedly caring for severely mentally ill people. I think of my work as a bootcamp for learning how to shape my love for each person into the type of expression that will ultimately serve their needs. It's a crazy (literally) and rewarding job. I also teach yoga, yoga teacher trainings, and facilitate transformational group processes related to therapy and spiritual practice. I make therapeutic theatre as part of this larger work. Community is hugely important to me. My first love is music and I feel most like myself when I'm singing.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Seeing and deeply respecting other people's realities, conjuring up infinite creative possibilities, collaborating, calling upon my inner-rascal to maneuver mischievously in dominant culture paradigms, composing songs for wild voices, pining quietly and loving purely.

I'm a vegetarian feel happy and healthy about it after both carnivorous and vegan incarnations.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friendship and all forms of love.
yoga/spiritual practice.
creative process/collaboration
singing/music
NYC.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
People's hidden narratives. The differences between fantasy, inspirational healthy imagining and "reality". Nurture/nature debates. Dogs. Futures. Pasts. How to turn what I see or feel into music.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I relish in the sacred times of the week when we're all given permission to slip into subversiveness. I love expanding the quaint, the hushed, the calm.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmmm…I don't think any of the things I could say in this box indicate true vulnerability. Those sacred interiors come with trust and time, regardless of how much we all feel apt to share awesome, factual eccentricities.
