My self-summary
Former performer: martial artist, spoken word artist, hip hopper, rabble rouser. I've transitioned into a professional Nurse Practitioner working 8-5plus treating people respectfully like human beings. My creative side enjoys writing and listening to people intently. I have found laughter in the darkest of times alongside family, friends, and patients.

I am enjoying the results of a self improvement kick that's gone on for decades now. I exercise, write, and do what I love daily. I have found work that allows me to help people and take care of my family. No smoking, no drugs, no debt, I'm free to truly enjoy ice cream and the occasional beer because I don't use these to run away from my problems. The only thing I'm missing in life is an awesome person to go on adventures with.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
These books changed how I see the world: Born to Run; Malcolm X autobio; Artist's Way; Zhuangzi Speaks: The Music Of Nature; finally, the most important book you will ever read: The Guide to Getting It On. I'm saying this as a health educator, protect yourself (but have a lot of fun while you do it).

Dancing or hanging with friends/strangers. Netflix/youtube viewing marathons.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I had listed myself as straight in case a patient stumbled on this site. I am silently judging myself for caving.
You should message me if
I’m on OKC to meet awesome people who inspire me. Friends and hang out buddies are welcome as well. I’m not looking for anybody to fix my life, I believe in taking care of that on my own. I can get along with anybody, but I enjoy myself most with people who laugh hard and feel passionate about something that they do in life. I click naturally with someone who can hold both intelligent and silly conversations. I love spontaneity.
