My self-summary
I'm a very easy-going person and enjoy meeting new people and hearing their stories. On one hand, I'm a bit of a goof and love to joke around, on the other, am committed to living an eco-conscious lifestyle and working towards creating a more just world. Spending time in natural spaces, dancing to live music, long dinner and games nights with friends are favorite pastimes that make my heart sing. Learning about different geographical and cultural contexts will never cease to be exciting and inspirational for me. I consider myself to be on a life-long journey of learning and spiritual growth. I would like to meet someone who has a great sense of humour, who likes to get involved in their community, and who would prefer discovering new places by hanging out with the locals rather than lounging at the all-inclusive resort.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a massage therapy practice and am currently working towards a masters in theology.
I’m really good at

Meaningful conversation, putting people at ease, telling funny stories, being empathetic, cross-country skiing, being there for my friend, persevering when the going gets tough, and being a great massage therapist.

How my words and actions affect other people

How to affect positive change through my words and actions

Finding the right balance between living in a vibrant, multicultural city with endless opportunities for artistic , social and political engagement, and the joy I derive from playing in natural spaces.

How to bring the things that feed my soul together with the way I pay the rent.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either writing a paper OR out at a house party/seeing live music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I liked the New Kids on the Block as a teenager.

I am just now getting comfortable swimming with my face underwater.

I have had more than one fashion malfunction over the years.
