My self-summary
Who am I? I am not going to take this opportunity to get meta...
so I guess I will say...
I am good friend, a loyal partner, and a dedicated life explorer. I am a down to earth girly girl that enjoys a good bike ride, yoga, hiking water falls, eating raw ( not strictly), watching the sun rise and fall on the water, and choosing to look to the brighter side. I know what I like..but always want to find more things to like, love, and enjoy. On the converse I have been through enough to know what I don't like and remain unjaded by life's trials and tribulations. We all have to go through the challenges to appreciate the good stuff. And I do appreciate the good stuff...
What I’m doing with my life
After many years of success in NYC, I traded it all in to pack my bags and head south and travel Central America and then made my way to southeast asia and indonesia. I am fascinated with the human experience, awakening, and self actualization. I'm now in Portland and work as a coach helping business owners find their soul service and co-create strategies to get their gifts out to the world. I also work on a product based business that helps bridge cultures through handicraft design... in general - I love being grateful for what I have,) traveling places near and far, practicing yoga, trying new food spots, seeing music shows, theater of many stripes, outdoor activities. Being fit is important to me so I make time to take care of myself...especially since I like eating so much!
I’m really good at
I am really good at being silly. Dancing like no one is watching...even when they are. I am good at asking interesting questions and listening to the answers. I pride myself on being one of those people you can take anywhere.
The first things people usually notice about me
well, it is not what you look at ...it is what you see.... but I would say the first thing people notice about me my eyes and my smile. Once they start talking to me I would say they notice that I am interested and interesting and I am funny with a good sense of humor.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The places I want to go and the things I want to do...and then I go do them.
On a typical Friday night I am
It really depends... dinner with friends, social events, hanging on the porch, singing Karaoke ... and sometimes I just want to do my laundry and hit the pillow
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i believe in aliens:) I mean - how can we be the only ones in this big universe???? That seems more ridiculous to me than the alternative...
You should message me if
you want to.....
show me what you love about Portland. Teach me how to get dirty in the garden. cook a delicious healthy meal together. take a long bike ride. Camp in the woods. Tube down a river. See a comedy performance. dance to live music. sing karaoke at the top of your lungs. watch the sunset and marvel at how beautiful the world can be if you just stop and take a breath....

maybe you have a better idea? I'm open

Or if this speaks to your heart...
