Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was born and raised in Los Angeles, and have traveled to many
places. Some of those places were like a dream come true, though
now they seem more like a dream. After living abroad for three
years, the question usually arises, "where I will end up next."
Life is truly unpredictable and making the most of the
opportunities presented to us is the beauty of life. Writing is a
good way of keeping record of one's escapades, and becomes an
anchor when the storms of reality approach hence writing is one of
my creative outlets.
I do a lot of hiking, and usually go twice a week, it keeps me calm
throughout the week and keeps the body working properly. Spending
time with close friends is a common characteristic of how my free
time is invested. Traveling was a big part of my life, though now
it has taken the form of exploring places to eat and driving to
venues that are out of the way. There is plenty of international
travel waiting for me and it will happen.
I ran my own business for about five years and returned to
education, even while teachers were being laid off, with the belief
that this is what the heart wanted. Now I work as a substitute
teacher and occasionally am swimming in papers to correct with
endless hours of checking notebooks. Teaching is great and it gives
you a chance to touch the lives of people when they are young.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I had been working in the education field for several years,
starting off as a teacher assistant, teaching in South Korea, and
even taught foreign students English at Occidental College, and
finally received my teaching credentials. I have a blog and spend
time writing and editing.
Figuring out how to grow up and be a responsible adult that can
find my significant other that will partake in the adventures that
both will have.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Recalling random details; that's why selling art books was a good
gig. I have a good eye for art and detail in specific pieces that
are good. Writing papers, and reading other people's work.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My future, lesson planning, food, sitting under a California oak a
bottle of wine and a slow moving river a few feet in front of me.
