About Me


finding sketchy salsa and line dancing bars


loud. buenagente. loves salsa dancing, and helping people. i'd like to think "fun" and "funny" but i'm not sure about that ;) crazy. traveler. and i've been getting a lot of "hippy"/"gypsy" lately although.. is that true? I do like Shakira's "I'm a gypsy.. are you coming with me? I might steal your clothes and wear them if they fit me!" ;)


"I had been my whole life a bell and never knew it until at that moment I was lifted and struck"


dancing, eating, chatting about interesting issues with friends, latin music, non-profits, talking about race, learning about africa, exploring new things, being happy with people i love

speaking spanish and wolof because it was the only way to communicate with japanese peace corps volunteers

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach French (maybe not perfectly) or at least practice it with you! I am learning Spanish and always looking for more practice. I can share travel stories and am always looking to hear more! I would like to learn how to sew and cook better, those domestic activities I kinda skipped over.
