About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I want to be endlessly inspired by the world and its people, and provide inspiration.

ABOUT ME

Generally, I am a chill chic who loves learning and experiencing new things, and meeting interesting people.

Most important specifics I can think of:

Music is my favorite thing in the world. I love seeing music, playing music, talking about music, learning about music.

Dancing is my favorite thing to do in the world. I have taken belly dancing classes, salsa classes, modern dance. I love to go to shows and festivals and raves and dance all night.

I am also a HUGE foodie. I love to cook, to learn about and experience local cuisines, and wine and dine. I love how food brings people together, and I love getting to know people over dinner, coffee, drinks, etc.

I got an interdisciplinary bachelor's degree in Culture and Communication, which is blend of everything I love- media and communication, history, sociology, anthropology.

I don't love politics at all, but I am highly political and am very interested in human rights issues. I would love to meet up with activist communities in my travels as much as I'd love to rave and eat awesome food.

PHILOSOPHY

"When I look around I think this, this is good enough and I try to laugh at whatever life brings cuz when I look down I just miss all the good stuff and when I look up I just trip over things..."

Beauty-everything Life- recognizing Love- sharing

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I went to Israel and the Palestinian territories for a human rights delegation and met with amazing activists.

Electric Forest: Rave in the woods. 'nuff said.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am such a jack of all trades, so I can teach you a tiny bit of many things. A few moves of belly dancing/salsa? Crude explanation of Ableton and music theory? Basic phrases in Arabic, Spanish, Italian? A little guitar? :) Genres of electronic music?

The only thing I could teach you a lot about is the history of the Israel/Palestine...I independently studied this in college and know quite a bit about it. It is topic not many people like to talk about b/c it is so controversial but if you are interested I will talk to you for hours about it!
