About Me


I love building healthy happy communities to be part of.


I am friendly, positive, considerate, and reliable. I like to live healthy, and I love swimming, biking, making jewelry and staying active, going to live shows (be it music, spoken word, slam poetry, storyslams/telling), dancing, singing, but also have chill nights with netflix and/or reading. I enjoy spending time with good company the most, and I love building community to be part of.


I love the arts, I love life and I love people.
