About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to actively appreciate all the amazing people, courses, and creative arts in NYC this year!

ABOUT ME

i like constant change and the ability to travel often... which is partially why i decided to become a bilingual speech-language pathologist... it's needed everywhere and flexibility is a must!!! I dabble in a lot of things, but would like to get more serious about any or all of them - including macrame, wire jewelry-making, mbira, trapeze/silks, photography, cycling, gardening, cooking tiramisu among other italian goodness,,, dancing salsa... currently i am spending free time in yoga classes, playing mbira, barefoot running (w/VFFs), dancing, and making occasional pairs of earrings... and biking into the city will happen very soon now that it is warmer!
