About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To be a speaker of words, a doer of deeds.

ABOUT ME

The things I enjoy most are meeting new people and seeing new things. I am kind and loving to all. I have a knack for educating others, sometimes against their will. I believe there is a reason for everything, and I always look for the answer that makes the most sense to me. I am just about always filled with joy, as few things are capable of phasing me. I give everyone, strangers included, a large amount of trust. I am willfully naive. I try to act with no attachment to any specific outcome, just accepting whatever comes. I am just along for this roller coaster ride we call life. When the gig is up, I just hope I loved enough, learned enough, taught enough, and experienced enough.

I like to grow things. Whether its ideas and relationships, or plants, I enjoy growing everything. I really enjoy taking care of my body with extraordinarily nourishing foods and activities like kale, yoga, meditation, stimulating conversation, learning new things, exercising, and kale! My work is my gift to the world, be it growing plants, teaching others, creating/building material things (gardens, tables, etc.), or just nourishing that seed of bliss, joy and knowledge within another person or myself.

I travel for work. I climb telecommunication towers all over the country to survey, map, and design reinforcements for them.

I love to play and listen to music. It fascinates me when I can create and share some beautiful sound vibrations with others and to see them enjoy. I really enjoy playing music for children especially! I like earthy tones like skin drums, wood flutes, singing/chanting and rattles. My favorite instruments to play are djembes and rattles.

PHILOSOPHY

Life's a garden. Dig in! Get your hands dirty!

Live your life, but try to live it mindfully. Practice communication through deep listening and loving speech. The greatest gift I can offer anyone is my true presence.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

When I held my little niece for the first time just after she was born. I had known for some time how the birth of a human being takes place, but holding the newborn just wowed me beyond belief. To think, that my own sister created this tiny baby girl with nothing but the body which was given to her. A truly awe inspiring moment for me.

And, you know, waterfalls and mountains and stuff. Baby turtles hatching, all that.

Teach, Learn, Share

I know quite a bit of math and science which I love to share. I am an avid gardner and can share what I know about plants and nature!
I feel I have discovered much esoteric knowledge about the universe, but it is from my own personal journey through life so it might not be your truth. I am happy to share though!
