I was a teacher for 10 years before I ran away to travel. I loved it but I really got tired of the structure. So, I quit and ran off to travel until I learned to bring the traveler attitude back with me. Now, I've got things worked out pretty great. It's much more fun to have the freedom to take months of vacation whenever I want to and pursue the kinds of projects that I care about. Basically, I'm digging life and I'm looking to meet people who love life and want to enjoy it to the fullest. I get one go at this whole living thing, I figure, and I want to enjoy the hell out of it.
On top of that, I love to play guitar with friends, cook giant meals for everyone at whatever event I might have planned, and taking random 3 and 4 day weekends to do whatever needs doin'.
I'm an excellent cook; I love making Thai, Indian, Mexican and Ethiopian food the most.
I am a very good story teller and love to share/hear stories all the time.
I am a great communicator; I am very patient and seek to find a balance where everyone feels they've said/gotten what they want.
I am very, very good at relaxing. I'm not sure if that's a skill worth mentioning but I'm seriously good at enjoying the present moment.
I'm getting good at the guitar and love to play along with or for others.
