My self-summary
ENFP, Enneagram 2W3, Capricorn Dog. I know labels tell you relatively very little about a person, but that little can be pretty useful at times.

Here's a word I made up that describes me pretty well: Sillious. One who takes the drive to be silly very seriously.

Also, I do the things that I do with a lot of passion and, when new ideas breeze by, child-like awe excitement. I'm always on the lookout for someone who can light up with me about my stuff and who I can light up with or for the stuff she is passionate about.
What I’m doing with my life
Sometimes nothing with an agenda. That feels good.

Sometimes writing plays, acting, directing, and producing theatre. That feels really good.

Sometimes life-coaching. That feel really good too and sometimes I even get paid for it.

Sometimes teaching Jewish text, Kaballah, Thetare, and Mindfulness mostly to teenagers. That also feels really good and it's how I make my living.

Sometimes visiting my family in NY. That feels good and also lots of other things, included exactly the kind of challenging I need at the moment.
I’m really good at
My job, big spoon, humility, meeting strangers on public transportation, holding comfortable space, listening, cheering defense at high school basketball games, getting really excited about ideas, accepting and empowering people, and making long (non-exhaustive :-) lists of things I'm good at with humility always coming in at #3.
The first things people usually notice about me
If I am sure that I can get away with hugging a person when I first meet them, they'll notice that I give really nurturing hugs. Otherwise maybe my smile or the tattoo on my hand.

Six things I could never do without
CAN'T live without? I don't want to tell myself or you that there are things I can't live without, but I guess I might say love, books, and performance.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hosting warm, collaboratively creative Shabbat meals and havdalahs or Theatre-ing, which is also holy to me.
You should message me if
I'm not a big should-er. Message...don't message...if we're supposed to meet we will. I'm not sweating it. I don't think you "should" either.
