My self-summary
/Let it come to you. Find a place you like, sit, wait. Watch life unfold. Become the wall you lean against. Be patient. See. Laundry drying in the afternoon sun. Old women in shaded alleyways. Kids playing soccer, bouncing off church walls. Un café, small strong sweet syrupy, drunk slowly in three sips. I'm eating like an American, fork in right hand. Follow the thread that's woven anew in each moment, let go when its time. You never know which language will be spoken by the next person you pass. Home is the next step you take./ -- written in August 2014, Alfama, Lisbon, Portugal.
What I’m doing with my life
I am fortunate to have a lot of control over my time, which allows me a very flexible lifestyle. So at any point, you may see me dancing (free form improvised), teaching (conscious dance), freelancing (tech stuff), taking photographs, working on arts projects, performing (movement theatre), reading, spending time with friends, eating, laughing, traveling, doing a spontaneous road trip, soaking in hot springs, taking long walks at the ocean, sitting quietly in meditation. Often several of these things happen all at once.
I’m really good at
Balancing my logical, practical mind with my creative, mindful heart. Making stuff work, bringing order to chaos, following through. Being a loyal and supportive friend. Exploring, being curious and adventurous. Being present and honest with myself and others, owning my stuff, communicating. Finding both depth and lightness. Seeing and creating beauty. Loving deeply.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height, my open smile. No, I don't play basketball.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BOOKS: everything by Haruki Murakami, Tiziano Terzani, Alessandro Baricco, Isabel Allende, Pico Iyer, Jostein Gaarder. MOVIES: everything by Wim Wenders, Zhang Yimou, Pedro Almodóvar. MUSIC: all over the map: reggaeton, dancehall, triphop, neo-soul, world, worldbeat, bhangra, jazz, rap, singer/songwriter, tango, cuban, etc. etc. FOOD: Asian, TexMex, Italian, German, French.
The six things I could never do without
Friends, Dance, Music, Water, Touch, Play
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What "home" means.
On a typical Friday night I am
There really isn't very much typical about my life :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I grew up in a country that doesn't exist anymore.
