My self-summary
I am invested in living my life as an unfolding myth. I am wholly taken with the arts of self-transformation, and love spending time with similarly intense, creative + eccentric people. I lead from my heart, and have an insatiably curious, wild mind. I possess a wacky sense of humor with an unquenchable penchant for all things absurd because life is strange. I work on a psych unit. I've seen it all. I have deeply political values, and center my work around issues of freedom of self-expression. I am interested in people, stories, and authentic communication. I learn through my body. I am deeply sensual. I have a wanderer's spirit that I have grounded and transmuted and tend to journey more inwardly than I do around the world. I want to meet people who are similarly complex, strong, sexy, paradoxical, and loving.
What I’m doing with my life
I work on an inpatient psychiatric unit as a drama therapist. I also teach yoga, and yoga teacher trainings. I make theatre both on the inpatient unit and independently. My first love is music and I feel most like myself when I'm singing.
I’m really good at
Seeing and deeply respecting other people's realities, conjuring creative possibilities, collaborating, and calling upon my inner-rascal to maneuver through dominant culture paradigms. Exploring love and intimacy in all facets. Loving sensitively, purely, deeply.
The first things people usually notice about me
Big eyes, curly hair, 5'2 with a whole lotta expression. In my body. Equal parts playful and intense, sensual and quirky.

NYC.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The relationship between healing, trauma, creativity and love. The influence of classism and racism in the country. Art, Sex, Music. Political art-making. Astrology, archetypes, collective unconscious & ancestors. Tantra and Vedanta.
On a typical Friday night I am
I work late on Fridays, so an easeful, sweet night at home is usually my jam.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't think any of the things I could say in this box indicate true vulnerability.
You should message me if
I am looking for a life partner. I prefer direct, honest communication. I have worked through a lot of trauma and shit in my life, and want to be with someone who is unafraid of their heart. Spiritual practice has been a major part of my life, and I am most compatible with others who have also trained in a wisdom tradition of some sort. I am attracted to original thinkers who live outside of the box, and get high on creativity, cleverness, + pure sensuality.
