What I’m doing with my life
I am currently living in the East Bay, but working in Marin as a chef and a baker at an organic noshery and grocery store and very much loving it.
I have been going to school for EMT/paramedics & Fire Science as well as Environmental Science and am looking to potentially get into permaculture.
I have also spent the last couple years running two businesses; the first being owning and running an apartment complex and the other was raising and breeding snakes. I still am managing the apartments, but the snake business ended up having to be split up (make sure to choose your business partners well...). I really still love snakes and still own a few.
The rest of my time I love to spend with my good friends, go dancing, go outdoor adventuring, spend a night on the town, spend listening to and playing music, and much more!
I’m really good at
Reading people and situations, listening, mediating, talking, singing, laughing, loving, working with my hands, metal-smithing, making jewelry, sharing, helping, writing, being ridiculous, being serious, being an introverted extrovert, cooking, baking, healing, nurturing, engaging, thinking, forgiving, working under pressure, being honest and open, being no-bullshit in an easy way, and many other aspects of life.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmm... It's hard for me to see myself in this light sometimes. Probably the biggest notice I get would be toward my smile and then maybe my eyes. Although, maybe the way I dress as well.

I make all sorts of delicious kinds of food all day for work, but for myself I really enjoy to eat anything as long as it is vegan (although I cook with meat and dairy and don't mind at all what others eat).

My reason
My cat (my familiar), Tipynea
