My self-summary
I have been in China almost 2 years now. I am teaching myself Chinese so be patient, but I know a fair amount. ;-)

Most days I feel like an alien (not human) and think I should live on the moon. I'm a 36 year with playful child tendencies. I am mature and responsible, but I don't think old equals stale and boring. It should mean wise, experienced and ready for more!

I always need to do creative projects. i love to make people smile and laugh and feel and i hope to one day do this as my full career.

I teach theater and comedy to the young children & teens at the Shangli language school in Bagaocun. I want to give them the gift of creativity and expression.

When I was a child, my friends and I were told in school at recess, "go play in that big field." "What do we do in a big field?" "I'm sure you'll think of something." .... And we did.

My best friend is my dog, Buster! He's a 5 year old beagle.
What I’m doing with my life
LEARNING PATIENCE!

Taking risks, starting projects, reading, soaking up information, picking apart and analyzing everything, talking to myself, finding balance, letting go, playing, being silly, taking the bus, playing gameboy, playing retro video games, riding my bike, seeing variety within routine, creating efficiency, writing, podcasts, loving others. Did I say reading?

Observing and sharing the absurdities of life.

I enjoy tomfoolery and kin-noodling around and generally act silly when I teach - but of course get down to business.
I’m really good at
learning chinese
Changing my look depending on the venue.
Taking charge when needed.

The first things people usually notice about me

My non-judgmental personality
My many moles (beauty marks) on my skin.
My very huge, incredibly manly... you know... .... .... Eyes
My extremely massive, vein filled, and throbbing... Heart.

**One time 3rd graders in china came up to me one her own and said, "I won't tell your secret that you are one of us and not an adult."**
