"What is success? To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived; that is to have succeeded."
Quitting the easy full-time designer at a tech company life and trying on my big girl freelancer pants - I go through an existential crisis like every other day, haha. I'm also funneling more and more energy into being an artist and honing/exploring my craft in my studio share at American Steel, aka, my happy place.
These days, I'm also planning a (potentially) solo adventure to Cuba this summer because it's high time I meet my motherland and because I am tired of feeling exactly LIKE THIS about your Cuba trips.
- Could be that I'm making a heinous sound with my throat because that's the only way I know how to scratch it when my allergies kick in
- Or maybe its that I'm smiling at you
- Or that I'm talking to a cat

Also, I'm really into the local bass music scene/DJs and not above dancing ANYWHERE if the music hits me just right. Not afraid to be the only body on a dance floor either.
Soundcloud! My Soundcloud really features a lot of my aforementioned bass-lovin' jams.
Food: Mediterranean, Japanese, Thai, Indian. Honestly, I'll try most foods, as long as it isn't fast food. I live for culinary exploration.
I'm all about the theme discussed in this article, Relationship vs. Relating.
Speaking of articles, I'm positive the NorCal sensibilities are present in most of you profile-readers, but hey everyone should read this because I recently interacted with someone who seemed to have a rudimentary understanding of this concept and it was both shocking and NOT fun.
In a cuddle puddle somewhere, at home with my cat, at my studio, waxing a dance floor with my butt, at some sort of monthly event, at a costume party, at a show grooving to good live music, getting really over emotional about a song I'm listening to on my headphones, hanging around the house listening to a podcast (my new favorite thing to do), having a drink somewhere maybe, at a story reading, at a poetry slam, at a poly happy hour, at a friends house, in my kitchen pretending I can cook, in front of my computer, at one of the many awesome cafés around Oakland, at Lake Merritt reading (though, probably not at night..), some sort of passive outdoor activity though I welcome the occasional not passive outdoor activity.
• You have a special place in your heart for self-awareness, introspection, emotional intelligence, body/sex positivity, and clear communication!
• You're one of those people who can have a great time just sitting in a room and talking to someone.
• You want to art together, or dance together, or do both. Simultaneously? Simultaneously.
• No, but really... ^
• If I five-star liked you and it's "mutual"? I hate talking about meta OkCupid shit but seriously, what are we doing here? Just stroking egos? Yes? I mean, okay.
