My self-summary
I love NY living--- including all the opportunities, and idiosyncratic people, perspectives, and things that come along with it. I've been here for a bit now and also think about a move outside of here--thinking it would have to be to another country and/or close to mountains or the ocean.

I find some of the best moments have happened when I've been open to spontaneous endeavors. I Have traveled lots on my own and love that freedom. Now, I'm feeling like I would love to share those experiences with a partner in crime.

Secret rebel... I'm compassionate and social. I love meeting interesting people and hearing new perspectives.
What I’m doing with my life
Creating and implementing a wellness program that integrates eastern and western modalities. Teaching yoga, tutoring kids, and hopefully helping clients I work with (in the wellness program) to grow.

In my spare time, spending as much time as possible in the summer sun. Riding my bike everywhere, seeing music, laying in the grass, being playful, getting lots of beach time, running, mastering ping pong and tacos, collaborating, thinking, discussing, spending time with friends and a glass of wine and/or pint of beer.

Being continuously fascinated about the similarities in ancient spritiual practices and psychology and how well they function to evolve people.
I’m really good at
Being simultaneously gentle and honest with matters of the heart

Making people think

Flip flops and heels... And riding my bike in both

Wine and ipas in the summer sun

being playful and finding fun in the mundane.

empathizing, debating, philosophizing, thinking.

taking perspective

yogaing, trying to surf, playing in the ocean, and being active and adventurous.

and being close with the ones that i love...

Six things I could never do without
creative thinking, people that challenge me, activity, sunshine, friends and family, books, the ocean, amazing hearts and good minds
I spend a lot of time thinking about

On a typical Friday night I am
with friend/friends catching up and having a drink...sometimes on the stoop and almost always outside when the weather permits.
