My self-summary
***I have an extra ticket to Block Party for this Sunday July 23rd (Julie Burne and Angel Olson ❤️). Join me?***

Creative energy inspires me.

I'm pretty comfortable in my life and in my heart and in my skin. I don't mind holding onto my past.
What I’m doing with my life
I have my own psychotherapy practice. I love what I do. Otherwise I spend a lot of time building or planting or writing or creating. Or walking the flea markets. I'm about half way through ten books. Good god do I need some fiction in life though.
I’m really good at
- food (many years in the industry)
- drink (see above)
- I get real delight out of being mischievous and kind of a smart ass.
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually a visible tattoo.

Six things I could never do without
I'd rather learn to do without. I find I'm far more comfortable when I'm less reliant on having stuff and more comfortable giving stuff up.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be more assertive when it's called for and less defensive when that's what's called for.

How to help people better experience their hopes and fears.

Where my next slice of pizza is coming from.
On a typical Friday night I am
Now that I don't bartender anymore Fridays actually mean something! I love seeing film or music, making a nice dinner and breathing easy at the end of my busy week. See art, find a good dance night, preferably 60's soul or RnB
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
And let you see the real me??
You should message me if
You're interested in genuine dialogue and can risk a little curiosity. I'd be fine and I bet you'd be fine if nothing came of this but an enjoyable conversation over an evening drink or afternoon coffee.
The two of us
