What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm fortunate enough to have a job that I love and one that
surprises me on a daily basis, is challenging and inspirational
with a dash of playful creativity and a smidge of international
spice. Favorite hidden gems include the coast of northern Spain,
deserts in general, Namibia, Buenos Aires, places where people have
crazy curly hair, Capetown, somewhere I can have savory soup for
breakfast...so many places to love.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-Connecting with strangers (and non-strangers too)
-Landing in a new country and finding my way to the hidden gem of a
restaurant or site worthy of a postcard
-Gathering and feeding a group of random friends
-Making a last minute meal from the random leftovers and condiments
in the fridge
-Connecting with kids
-Wearing a mermaid costume with chuck taylors and jeans.

ring, I suppose.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A passport, MB, and could live without most everything else ... I'm
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Building community near and far through food, art, and play. How to
appease the snow gods so that we get a decent winter with the white
stuff. The mysteries of this OKC experience.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
No such thing! Out at live music, enjoying good eats & drinks,
diving into community events, shaking it up at dance parties,
hosting potlucks. Essentially enjoying wherever I am.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Will save that for later...
