About Me

CURRENT MISSION

observing without judgment

ABOUT ME

I dance to the beat of my own drum but please, come dance with me.

Bailo al ritmo mio, pero estas bien invitad@ bailar.

I travel like Rolf Potts ! You are a travel legend in the making, with a sense of adventure that will lead to hundreds of fascinating stories. Locals all over the world will give you special nicknames, and almost all of them will be complimentary. What type of traveler are you? Take BootsnAll's Travel Quiz to find out.

PHILOSOPHY

"El sol se levanta manhana, y quien sabe lo que traera la marea."

"To accomplish great things, you must not only act but also dream, not only dream but also believe."-Anatole France

"Great spirits have often encountered violent opposition from weak minds." -Einstein

I am enthusiastically involved in immersing myself in culture. Understanding and compassion is where it all begins.

La comprensión y la compasión es donde todo comienza.

Music, Movies & Books

I love magic realism, esp. Bombal and Marquez. I am madly in love with Jose Marti and have a thing for revolutionaries of all eras (present included). The long list of beloved authors would be better discussed.

I enjoy solid musicians, people who are into the music and the way it moves them.

TVs make excellent flower pots ;)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Going to high school with kids my age (15 at the time,) who had lived through the Velvet Revolution (Czech Rep.).

"Speaking with my ancestors" through a 4,000 year old conch shell that hadn't been blown into in that long. (Manabí, Ecuador)

New Orleans before, during, and after Katrina .

Watching our lawn become jello and our house a Gumby impersonation (Loma Prieta Earthquake, 89', Watsonville, CA)

Teach, Learn, Share

I am a vocalist by passion and also by training and would love to sing with you, jam with you, whatever. I also adore cooking and can help in the North Western Mexican pueblo-style cooking and also with Mexicali type dishes. I was raised with a Japanese family and I can cook a few Japanese things as well as some Indian dishes. Other than that, I can make something tasty out of almost anything.

Countries I've Visited

Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Philippines, Sweden, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In

Austria, Ecuador, Jamaica, Switzerland, United States
