My self-summary
Greetings to the wild ones, the men who are out there braving the edges and the prickly bits in order to get to the really good stuff, the authentic connection and powerful joy. Seeking a fellow pioneer of consciousness to rock the world in tandem. Be bold. Surprise me.

It would be great if you loved books and movies and were insatiably curious. I'd love to meet people, now mostly healthy, yet with a history of having a bit of an edge, particularly artists, writers, musicians: misfits who make the world more interesting, more rich. Tell me you've traveled everywhere and what you loved about each place. Tell me you've been in touch with your darkness, your self- loathing, your fear and how how you're stepping over and through them to the other side.

Dance like you enjoy your body and can feel the music in every atom. Pull me into your exciting and positive world and let's shake things up together.

Be the hero of your own life and you will be most welcome to witness the wildness, mystery and powerful beauty of mine.

I am Fiery, Passionate, and Alive
What I’m doing with my life
I'm putting together an online business promoting a book about emotions that I think will help people. I'm also writing sci-fi screenplays and novels and dreaming up a better world. My screenplays have been in the top 15% of the Nicholl Fellowship and the Austin Film Festival. Working at it, improving. I'm just crazy about making things up.

For 11 years I've sent people to Antarctica and the Galapagos Islands for a living, a fantastic job. Now I'm entering a new phase of my life that may or may not include a full time job. I'll keep you posted.

I'm also a costumer/parade artist and perform with a parade troupe at the Oregon Country Fair. I'm also a ritualist, an actress, an Isadora Duncan-inspired dancer, an improv commedienne, percussionist, angelic singer, and I professionally read and teach the Tarot.

For two years I owned an organic women's clothing shop. Plus I've published a book about ritual which was a sweet project. I have to say I'm living a rich life in my beloved Portland. My community is so wondrous, love-filled and happy/strange. How I love my town!

Plus I have to mention the big, giant, cosmic onion. I'm a spiritual peeler. What do you mean "create your own reality?" I wanna know.
I’m really good at
I'm a great listener, a particularly good diplomat, a fine singer, a spirited percussionist, an excellent playmate (truly outstanding), a colorful writer, a fantastic dancer, an inspired costumer, a thoughtful philosopher, a compassionate teacher, a spunky actress/comedienne, and a wildly creative artist of life.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm actually having a good time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
At this moment I'm thinking...

Book: Recently the Red Rising series by Pierce Brown. I loved the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon (probably a girl thing.) The Alexandria Quartet by Lawrence Durrell or Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being. How about that David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas or Ursula LeGuin, all of it. John Crowley, Little Big. Jim Harrison, Dalva. Jorge Amado. Kim Stanley Robinson: Mars Trilogy. Sherri Tepper, Starhawk. Tom Robbins is a god. Neal Stephenson. I'm a reader.

Film: Almost Famous, Strictly Ballroom, Blade Runner, Donnie Darko, Children of Men, Pan's Labrynth, The Handmaid's Tale, Inglorious Basterds, Juno, Slumdog Millionaire, Dangerous Liasons, Amelie, Mississippi Masala, Henry & June, Master and Commander, Room with a View, Fanny & Alexander, Les Enfants du Paradis, Jules et Jim, La Dolce Vita or ... (I've loved so many)

Food: I was a vegetarian for 20 years and then at my naturopath's urging, started eating meat. I recently traveled to India and stayed at an Ayurvedic retreat center where I was vegetarian again. Since I've been home I've been focusing on eating whole foods and a little meat has come into my diet again. I feel pretty stable with this diet now and it feels healthy for me.

Music: Manu Chao or The Buena Vista Social Club, Michael Franti/Spearhead. I have a new respect for kirtan: Jai Uttal and Krishna Das. Came a bit late to the Decembrists which I now love. Ray LeMontaigne. Cheb I Sabbah, Tori Amos, Regina Spector, Mumford & Sons - this list is way too long to start.

Ask me ten minutes from now.
Six things I could never do without
Trees, Love, Stories, Movies, Romance, Dreams, Music, Poetry, Clothes, the Internet, Goofing, talking to myself, Dancing, Dressing up in Costumes, Sex... (Forget six things; I love all the world and its extraordinary beauty.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...what's true for me and trying to sort it out from what's true for others or from what some would like me to believe.
On a typical Friday night I am
Feeling groovy. Following my train of thought. Frolicking.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I continue to believe...
"The greatest thing you will ever learn is to be loved, and to give love in return."
You should message me if
You're exploding with energy!
The two of us
