About Me

Peace, fun, love, health and happiness mean everything to me. I enjoy a sense of community and connecting with people. I'm active and like to have any sort of outdoors fun.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went on a 3.5 month long WWOOFing road trip around the United States in which I helped out with farming and gardening and learned permaculture from people who grow food on their land.

My favorite part of the trip was experiencing many traditional sweatlodges WWOOFing with Native Americans in their remote paradise in Southern Colorado.

I went to Boulder for a great WWOOF stay after this; it is my favorite city yet. (I live here now!!) So much expression of positive emotion and talent is constantly displayed on Pearl street. I hung out with so many friendly street performers who were passing through. Mostly musicians that I would juggle and dance next to. Also Boulder is huge on sustainability. They have excellent nature bicycle routes that connected all nearby residents to the city and each other. Biking is part of the culture there and many people's main form of transportation. On thursdays huge groups of people all ride together happily saying "happy thursday!" all over town. I joined the group and it was so much fun.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to teach juggling! I can teach origami too. Ashtanga primary series. Basic acro yoga~

I love to learn anything people want to teach.

I'd like to share ideas, food, experiences and skills.
