My self-summary
My default mood is happy with a splash of optimism. Androgynous queer, extremely self aware, free spirit without being reckless, intrepid entrepreneur, passionate about my work, my art and this walk. Insatiably inquisitive... I gravitate towards thoughtful curious minds. Equal parts good sense of humor mixed with a bit of sarcasm and a quick wit.

*Simply looking to expand my QPOC social circle at the moment.
What I’m doing with my life
Field testing strategies for sustainable enjoyment. ;)
I’m really good at
Creative problem solving. My career. Karaoke...I kill 80's rock ballads.(I have no shame.) lol Being consistently sincere. Giving from the overflow. Seeing through BS with a pleasant smile. Quickly dispelling heteronormative notions of beauty and intimacy. Making sound judgements without being judgemental. Living my spiritual practice. Anticipating the needs of people around me. Being unapologetically vulnerable while holding on firmly to all logic and reason. Appreciating beauty in difference. Chatting up old people. Disregarding my ego and yours to gain the highest expression of bliss in every encounter. Working with my hands. Being direct. Nurturing my interests. Remorseless graceful exits. Being a connecter of people. Keeping myself thoroughly amused. Adapting. People watching. Curating a spectacular life. Making sure all my needs are met. Asking the right questions. Seeing the whole of society through a panoramic lens. Enjoying the ebb & flow of relationships. Rising to the occasion. Knowing what I'm good at. Telling particularly bad jokes at just the right moment ;)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
- How to stay in the moment.
- Community building.
- Walking the Camino de Santiago
- Intentional communities
- Permaculture & sustainable design
- The universal question that has baffled Angelenos for generations.... How many street tacos is too many in one sitting?
- My art
- The perfect cocktail
- Microaggressions
- Time travel to 1920s Harlem and why I've romanticized that notion so.
- Is the quest for the perfect vegan taco a form of self sabotage?
On a typical Friday night I am
Acting as if I don't have work early Saturday mornings.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
• I have an odd crush on William Shatner(Captain James T. Kirk to be completely accurate ), Neil Degrassi Tyson, Oliver Sacks & Antonio Damasio. (I know...no shame.lol)
• there was a time in my early 20s that I was convinced with great certainty that Paul Mooney was my biological father.
• my mind chatter is backed by a 12-piece ensemble.
• I get absolutely giddy/geeked around beautiful architecture, well curated thoughtful libraries & galleries.
• indecisiveness makes my member flaccid.
• slight sci-fi nerd... My inner fanboi has no problem admitting a Joss Whedon or Guillermo Del Toro meet & greet would most certainly elicit an internal girlish squeal.
• INFJ (lol..So)
