Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an artist. The combination of hard work and luck has led to an
adventurous life and lots of every day happinesses. I'm passionate.
Love to laugh. I'm pretty driven, but the flip side of that is
taking in the simple things. I'm at that point in my life (after
working pretty hard to survive as an artist) that I'm finally
enjoying the world around me. I love exploring things: from
climbing mountains to understanding people to learning about
history. I love the journey (not the band, well, actually, yes the
band). Carpe Diem was under my yearbook photo. I love long
conversations where you discover who someone is. I have this
enormous capacity for love and have loved very deeply. I never
thought I would be online, but because of my work, it's challenging
to meet someone out of the profession. So here I am...and that's
awesome. I'm looking forward to the journey...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I feel very blessed that the big dreams of the small kid from the
small town actually came true. I guess better than that: they
evolved into something more fulfilling. I wake up everyday and love
what I do. I'm also surrounded by wonderful people. So, no matter
what mountains are there to climb (and there are many), I feel very
lucky to have the life I do.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting people excited. Getting things done. Opening people's eyes
by creating and teaching, or connecting. I'm a good listener and
observer. Making people laugh...you have to laugh at how ridiculous
we all are. It humanizes you. Come on, you're reading an online
