About Me

CURRENT MISSION

listening, learning, doing and having fun

ABOUT ME

I'm an American Indian student currently learning acupuncture so I can be of service to my people and community.

I love traveling around and meeting people.

PHILOSOPHY

I don't drink or do drugs and prefer not to have that in my space.

Life is beautiful and I love being around others who appreciate it too.

I try and live my life in a way that has not only the least negative impact on others but hopefully a positive impact.

I love to laugh and think and share. I have a very low tolerance for greediness.

Music, Movies, and Books

I recently read Ceremony by Leslie Marmon Silko and loved it.

I really like Espinoza Paz, La Tropa Vallenata, Calle 13, Tom Waits...I like most music really, 80's stuff and old school country...and Johnny Cash, Cyndi Lauper and Boyz II Men...

I just saw Whip It and loved it, I like bad comedies and kids' movies. Don't like horror films.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Geez, I've been a lot of places, done and seen a lot of things and met a lot of amazing people. I'm usually blown away by life at least several times a week if not every day.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach basic cooking, carpentry, bike repair, acupressure and probably other stuff once we get to talking.

I'm interested in learning to better my spanish, linguistic, gardening, teaching, bike repair, woodworking, mandarin language, Native language and sewing skills and I'm sure much more. There isn't much I don't want to learn.
