My self-summary
Conversation above all things. Spoken and unspoken. Verbal, musical, physical. I love to read and recite, play and sing. I bribe my junior family members to memorize poetry. I try to do everything homemade and from scratch: songs, pies, stews, cabinets and bookcases, computers. I am lucky to have good hands.
What I’m doing with my life
Someone said once - and it might have been me - 'art is a trap to catch a consciousness'? Who do you think makes the traps?
I’m really good at
Storytelling, Cooking, Design. A little strumming and singing.
The first things people usually notice about me
These aren't platform shoes.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Producing better pieces, making better music and telling better stories.
On a typical Friday night I am
With friends, talking, eating reading, cooking or writing.

The Cherry Tree? It wasn't George.
You should message me if
You love to talk. You think that your deepest relationships can always be deeper. You know you're graceful and sensual but in your own way. You've found your passions, you're working to make them real and you want spend time with someone else who's doing the same.
