About Me


Learn, Teach, Love.


I'm a commuter for work and for play; usually as a freelance IT consultant or studying yoga. I try to make the whole world my home wherever I am. I hoard books and am obsessed with mosaics, tiling, and creative masonry. I have a special affection for rivers, lakes, and the beautiful, endless ocean. I've recently been called a 'tactile person' due to my affinity for touching everything.


If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice. --Meister Eckhart

Fast is fine but accuracy is final. You must learn to be slow, in a hurry. --Wyatt Earp

Now all my teachers are dead, except silence. - WS Merwin

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Faces full of joy!

Teach, Learn, Share

I've tutored English as a second language before, I teach yoga, can probably fix your computer, and would LOVE to learn anything you have to offer. :) I also know how to make a good raw food cheesecake, delicious hangover smoothies, and good garlic Alfredo sauce... But anything beyond that is an experiment and you can eat it at your own risk.
