I'm outdoorsy, hiking, biking, kayaking, camping, gardening and all that. I like the kind of activities that allow you to see something you hadn't before. You're not likely to find me on some indoor exercise contraption, but lately I've been edging closer to meditative yoga. I can be very happy staying at home all day, binging on netflix and multitasking or working in the yard. I enjoy cooking as a social activity, helping to chop or stir. My waffles, coconut cream pie and cheesy bread are tops. I tend to overcook things on the BBQ, but I am aware of this so there is hope. I'm creative, a tinkerer, always trying to build a better mouse trap. I like to explore, be it the neighborhood, a road trip or that dish I haven't had before. I have a strong sense of purpose and justice, I have a hard time applying myself to things I believe are a compromise towards building a better world. I value cooperation over competition though I have both within me. I look at politics through an anti oppression community organizing lense. The interaction of environmental and social movements is one of my favorite topics. I think politics have to be fun and non-judgemental or they are a waste of time. I tend to spell things out rather than abbreviate them. I like to get my hands dirty but clean up well. I am sex positive. Just want to have a good time while I'm at it all, with someone who is open, curious, and ready to explore what's down the road less traveled.
What I’m doing with my life
At the moment I am living for the moment. Paying the bills driving a Yellow Cab and tutoring math. I have recently completed programs in Mathematics Education, Sound Healing, Music and Permaculture. Now I'm studying Horticultural Therapy. Maybe I am vaguely creating my own flavor of Educational Therapy? Maybe I am just following my instincts? I prefer working with underserved populations. I am involved with my community garden.
I’m really good at
gardening, fixing things, teaching, spatial organization

Asleep, catching up with friends, tinkering with some project...

A place for everything and everything in its place
