About Me


bringing myself and my love fully to wherever I am


--- PLEASE read my couch information before sending a request -------

34 years old. Working for a non-profit that creates affordable tech solutions for people with disabilities (http://tomglobal.org). Due to this amazing job, I also get to travel alot :)

Love music, play Percussion & Guitar.
Into meditation and awareness, bodywork and various types of therapy.
looking to make the world a better place while keeping myself happy.


First of all .. take it easy.
Everything you have awareness of, you can change.
Don't identify with that voice in your head too much, it isn't you - treat it as you would treat your child, with love & care - but don't give it candy whenever it asks!

LOVE is pure. don't mix it with anything else.
