I am artistic, spiritual, have a witty sense of humour, and love to
laugh. I have a robust appetite for adventure and travel, and have
an enthusiastic and joyous disposition. I balance my outpouring of
energy into work, play and parenting with quieter pursuits, like
inspiring conversation, and intimate time with friends. My heart is
open and so is my mind. I am a conscientious Mama and spend time
with family. I take good care of my daughter, my relationships, and
What I’m doing with my life
I am a visual artist, singer and community arts facilitator. I have
a studio gallery that I share with other artists, I sing with a
women's vocal ensemble and I lead visual and performing arts
projects with children, youth and adults in school and community
I’m really good at
Remembering names. My record was remembering 60 students names in
one day. As well as guessing the nationality of taxi drivers. Yes,
I know this is an obscure skill set. But seriously, I am very good
at sensing what is going on inside another person. Howard Gardner
calls it intrapersonal intelligence.
The first things people usually notice about me
It's got to be the afro. But once they get past that, people often
comment that they feel a calmness from me, a peacefulness. Another
thing people notice about me is that I am artistic, I think outside
the box and I'm pretty upbeat most of the time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
My daughter's belly laugh, communing with my dearest women friends,
African music, fabulous salads with my very own famous dressings,
hot summers, spring water from the source
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My mind is usually humming with ideas about artwork I want to
create, and music I want to make.
On a typical Friday night I am
Taking my daughter to her jazz dance class, and hanging out at my
studio while she is there, and sometimes visiting some friends for
dinner after her class.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ah, that you will have to wait and see...
You should message me if
...you are a man who is awakening to new insights about
relationship. A good match for me is someone who can be playful and
fun, and yet is doing his inner work and is comfortable with
intimacy; someone upbeat and eclectic, who is cultured and
romantic; someone who has stable relationships with family and
friends, is fulfilled in his life and wants to find the right woman
to share it with.
