California native, twice removed.
I am just returning after 15 years traveling and living in the South.
I get to do what I love for a living and feel oh so grateful to be here in Oakland. Life is fun.
My favorite things involve spending time with others, biking SF and East Bay, reading, learning, and finding whatever trouble I can manage finding. I work within the subtle arts of graphic design and very recently I decided to leave a job and trade an over-inflated salary, yogurt parfaits and excessive meetings for my sanity. I love my job. I am also a writer of sorts and play music and get jiggy with my inner voice.
I practice meditation and try to live curiously keeping a beginners mind. I like to ask questions, practice listening and do my best to make the most of the time we have right now. I currently have no idea if there is anything after all of this.
Art and community are very important to me.
Often I'm making the best of things and seeing the best in things.
Making a great cup of coffee.
