My self-summary
"She's beautiful AND she's got jokes."- Little brother. I finally felt understood by my family. :P

I can be stubborn and ambitious but have a huge soft spot for people I like. I know what my hard "no's" are but other than that, I'm willing to try almost anything once, given the right company.

Sometimes, the universe leaves me gifts through free things strangers leave on the street. Examples include: a stuffed giraffe I named helga, a cookbook of aphrodisiacs and others!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm starting a new job as a Community Manager at a non-profit. Before that, I taught sex ed, worked in international development and generally tried a lot of different things. I'm hoping this will stick!

Some things on the bucket list include traveling to Mexico, working abroad, volunteering to teach yoga and being an entrepreneur. In the meantime, I'm traveling when I can, cooking, baking, doing yoga, reading and adventuring.

My interests include: philanthropy, gender, the non-profit industrial complex, zines, crafting, identity, yoga, trauma, writing, running. I like to keep busy. :)
