My self-summary
I am constantly looking to be inspired and to inspire. I love to learn more about myself, other people, and the world. Inquisitiveness is a driving force in my life. I like to see things from a variety of viewpoints and angles. I am fascinated by history, and the continuity of society and culture. I like to have my viewpoints challenged. I find wisdom in everything, especially the intersections of seemingly contradictory points.
What I’m doing with my life
Always looking for a balance between space and activity. I have an engaging job that has me traveling regularly. I am active with a Buddhist Meditation and Cultural center in a variety of administrative, volunteer, and teaching positions. I practice yoga, run, bike around the city, and get out for regular hikes. Exploring Boston and beyond.
I’m really good at
Learning new things. Appreciating. Synthesizing diverse elements. Writing. Deep, long conversations. Encyclopedic memory of random and wonderful facts (Great trivia team member). Outdoors activities.
