My self-summary
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about dancing in the rain.

I'm moving to Tokyo for a few years in January to see how other societies organize themselves, what they care about, and how people maintain their passion for their communities.

Until then, I'm enjoying my last bundle of hours here in San Francisco with friends, old and new, making and strengthening connections that can cross an ocean.

The friends I love most in my life live passionately, fiercely, and towards a dream bigger than themselves. I'm always down to expand that list and see what's possible!
What I’m doing with my life
I bridge language barriers by improving Google Translate for millions of people. In my personal time in ponder on how nonprofits work and what I can do to better empower them.

Broadly, I love supporting other peoples dreams and endeavors.
I’m really good at
- Proposing outlandish and optimistic ideas
- Making up creative stories on the fly
- Making time for people I care about
- Cycling
The first things people usually notice about me

San Francisco
being a little busy
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- What feelings do I want to inspire in others and how do I accomplish that?
- How do I make inviting spaces?
- how do you make non profits more successful?
- how to brew that perfect cup of tea.
On a typical Friday night I am
Somewhere. It's always different. Sometimes another country, sometimes another city, sometimes in a basement drinking whiskey. Who knows?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I do something like the waltz when I cook
You should message me if
I'm hoping to meet a thoughtful and driven person for a budding partnership of any length. One in which we can share the things that make us smile and have company in the things that challenge us.

You'd like to open a Tea shop named GenerosiTea. We could give out ideas on how to be thankful with every receipt!
