Also noteworthy: I'm mostly in the market for new friends but if I happen to catch your fancy let it be known that I am in a polyamorous relationship. :3
Once upon a time...for several years I worked in education, focusing on special education and more specifically deaf and hard-of-hearing students and young adults with special needs. I have a lot of passion for this field but I decided to take a break for personal reasons. I'm still trying to reevaluate if this is the path for me but as time passes new dreams are emerging and curiosities are being indulged.
Meanwhile! I am a recent transplant to Los Angeles and I'm always looking for awesome people with similar philosophies to do awesome-people stuff with.
I've been watching a lot of comedy and am going through my freshmeat training and trying to do the roller derby thing.
