About Me


A stranger is just a friend I havent met yet.


When I hear tunes I can't stop moving my body.

I often play, write, listen to music.

I talk a lot- with my family, friends, strangers. i like getting to know unique personalities and learning from differences.

I'm very curious. I ask a lot of questions

I get a lot of joy out of making other people smile, letting them know that I appreciate and think about them.

i like to have fun in nature, i like making art, taking long walks, seeing new things, learning about the potential of our universe.

i like to experiment with different learning styles. I enjoy learning languages and reading about and experiencing different cultures.

I love to travel. I love animals. I love kids.
I feel honored to meet so many great people every year.

There's more but that's enough for now.


Absence diminishes mediocre passions and increases great ones, as the wind extinguishes candles and fans fires. --Francois de la Rochefoucauld
