About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To love

ABOUT ME

I recently graduated from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska in May 2010 with a degree in International Relations and Economics. I went to Nicaragua for a few months during the summer to practice my Spanish and see a new place. Now I live, work, and am in a Grad Program in NYC for International Development. I moved here without knowing a soul, and have met some wonderful people. I have more room in my apartment than I know what to do with, which is why filling it with Couchsurfers seemed like the only logical choice... :-)

My current state of being can best be described as: On Fire. I love learning, meeting new people, and engaging in meaningful conversation. Many would call me an idealist, and they would be exactly right. I am also a romantic. I am sarcastic (usually too much for my own good), perpetually inquisitive, and awfully restless as of late. I prefer spontaneity and dancing to any and every kind of music. If you are in love with life, then we will undoubtedly be friends. Finally, you should know that I equate movement and action with truly living...hence, I was borntomove...

PHILOSOPHY

"Don't be afraid to go out on a limb, because that's where the fruit is."

"Go salsa dancing with your confusion."

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Loved. The ongoing "WOW" is happening right now.

Teach, Learn, Share

One nugget of advice: Give it all away.

"We are all co-authors of this dancing exuberance, where even our inabilities are having roast."

"Life is a matter of a miracle, that is collected over time by moments flabbergasted to be in each other's presence. The world is an exam to see if we can rise into the direct experience. Our eyesight is here as a test to see if we can see beyond it and and doubt is here as an exam for our vitality."
