About Me


write an ethnology of the world's dance parties


I enjoy learning about the world around me by meeting new people. I really like studying other cultures and thinking critically about conventions. I have almost unlimited patience for people and always try to look at situations from as many perspectives as possible. I am adaptable but non conforming, sociable but independent, comfortable in silence but eager to listen, spiritual but not religious, logical but emotional and contradictory but consistent.

What I lack in sense of direction I make up for with my sense of adventure which often means taking the least direct route to wherever it is that I'm going. Something I'm coming to think of as a metaphor for my life.

People say that life is hard but I think it's usually just pretty funny :)


Everything in moderation, including extremity.

"Somewhere in the archives of crudest instinct is recorded the truth that it is better to be endangered and free than captive and comfortable." Tom Robbins

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn about you! Your culture, your language, how you think, the ways of your party - I have something to learn from everyone.

I can teach you how to cook delicious vegan food, hula hoop and ice skate (but not all at the same time). I also really enjoy helping people learn English.
