My desire to effect positive change in the world and shift the current paradigm is a driving force in my life - which is to say I'm very happy with what I do and the reasons I do it.
I enjoy dancing and social gatherings - from film festivals to political conferences to dinner and dance parties. But just as much as I can serve as a party catalyst, I am as easily comfortable chilling for the night...and just being in the moment, whether alone, with friends, or a date.
I played a lot of competitive sports (basketball, tennis, volleyball)in the past, but don't nearly as much as I would like anymore. I love film, music, nature, reading, writing and asking big questions and seeking big answers...and constantly questioning the "accepted Matrix".
I don't take life too seriously (certainly not the small stuff), and never let the great challenges of the planet, or my life specifically, take away from all the joy and beauty we are offered while alive, here and now. The world is simply a better place the more love, compassion and happiness there is in it. So its a win win :)
More generally, I see life as an ever expanding opportunity to evolve consciously, emotionally, spiritually and intellectually...and become a better, wiser, and more enlightened human being in the process....and have a whole lot of fun while doing it.
