Where to begin, where to begin..... well, when I was 11 I convinced my father to let me travel to Fiji by myself. I suppose that you could say that I am a traveler at heart who loves to keep a cozy nest.
I moved to Seattle quite recently and am quite delighted to be back in the PNW.
I love to be surrounded by a community that is passionate about life. I did my undergrad in anthropology & have two MAs, one in International Environmental Policy, one in Public Administration. I've lived and worked in many places in on both sides of the US as well as internationally, I've backpacked 40 days alone in Nepal, climbed many a volcano, worked as a guide & wilderness EMT, am a yoga teacher, polymath.
I love the ocean, surfing, snowboarding, yoga, awesome hats, laughing with my friends, live music, dancing, dancing, dancing, long walks in the rain, big cups of tea, being cozy, big fires, sickle moons, metaphysics, interesting conversations....did you know that bees can see ultraviolet? ;) I am a very curious person and love learning about most things. I am generally busy around the clock, but I value making time for worthwhile things and always love meeting new and interesting folk.
I am starting a company here in seattle and also work with a consulting group, doing human experience design research. If you want to talk more about either of those things, might I suggest coffee?
I enjoy the ancient arts of fermentation and multiplication of biotic communities in the kitchen.
Movies: Dirty Dancing (and yes, you have to like this movie, too) Generally speaking, I am more into films made in the Spanish speaking world, so chances are, if it is in Spanish, I have a greater chance of liking it...
Music... I love amerigrass/folk/blues/bluegrass/thought provoking hip hop/booty bouncing rooty stomping dub wamp/FUNK/brassy new orleans shit. oh, and random rab/edm
and, let's be honest, probably hats.
The mysteries of existence. Optimizing time spent thinking, thinking less. The "whys." Tea. The book that I am reading. People. Plants. Food Systems. What I want from life/the future. What now feels like.
Hanging out by the fire?
