My self-summary
Life isn't about finding yourself it's about creating yourself... And I'm doing just that! I've been singing, playing piano, composing, painting & drawing since before I can remember.

Self-expression is my biggest passion and way of communicating with this crazy world. I believe in the healing power of sound, music, art, food, and yoga/meditation.

I love performing and being on stage with my piano, uke, a mic, some bourbon and a crowd of people!

I have a sunny disposition, always yearning for an adventure. I love to travel and be active in the outdoors, going hiking, camping, being in the ocean and running. In my down time I also love to cook, experimenting with new flavors and recipes. If I'm not jammin' out by the beach and writing music then I'm out dancing to it (I love to Salsa/Cha Cha!)

I love to laugh and have a ridiculous sense of humor. I'm an open, conscious mind and enjoy picking people's brains... I love learning something new everyday!
What I’m doing with my life
Im constantly pursuing any creative, musical and adventurous endeavor I can get my hands on! Yes this means I'm currently a starving artist... Well not starving, I eat well... But don't expect me to be your sugar mama. I studied piano/voice performance and want to get my masters in music therapy/acoustics. I also work as a liquor rep & promotions manager for a local vodka & tequila company... It's a very fun job!
I’m really good at
Piano, ukulele, singing, composing, writing, drawing/painting, acting, graphic design, cooking, conversations, foreign accents, dancing, massages.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm usually always smiling or laughing!

FOOD: There's really nothing I don't love. I can't have gluten anymore so I cook a lot making GF versions of my favorite things. I can always find something I can eat when I go out. I'll eat anything that swims or crawls in the ocean and I love foreign foods. I must consume on a regular basis: Sushi, tacos, avocados, eggs, coconut milk/water, pho, and potatoes (in all forms, especially fries). My favorite condiment is honey mustard, with sriracha in a close second.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Music, art, science, spirituality, nature, personal growth, the meaning behind my dreams, and what I'm going to cook for dinner.
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends on my mood! If I don't have a music gig, I'm either out dancing with friends or I'm at home cooking and getting crafty!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I play with balls sometimes... As in, I can juggle. Literally, it's wildly fun and entertaining... Throw me a few limes, will ya?
You should message me if
You are intelligent, outdoorsy, adventurous, like to watch documentaries, try new food, debate issues, have a playful sense of humor (you can dish it out AND you can take it, and bonus points if you can do as many accents/impressions as I can.) Read books, don't hate your life (really... don't bring me down if you think you have a miserable existence. You live in friggin' California not Uganda.) Love art & music, animals (I do have a large male cat that looks like a miniature snow leopard.) Must be open-minded, ambitious and willing to get silly, dance and go for the occasional karaoke. I also love a good red wine, bourbon or scotch... Scotchy scotch scotch... So don't be a lightweight ;)
