...Born and raised in SB California, I went to Portland OR for undergrad and have moved around quite a bit. Before moving to Monterey for grad school, I was in India doing research. Before that I was working out at the Channel Islands National Park.
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 trained yoga teacher and still studying yoga... 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.
Furthermore, there have been many recent mountain lion sightings in some of my favorite places to hike, so I am trying to do less hiking alone and more "buddy" hiking :-) That is where you come in!
;) I am loving it, learning from it and deeply breathing it all in.
Of late I have been teaching myself more of the ancient arts of fermentation.
Honestly, I have no idea.
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. The nervous system/the brain (I am fascinated).
Hopefully not doing homework, but I would be lying if I said that it never happens ;-)
You think that this website is a dumb, but do not like meeting people in bars ;-p
